AbstractSOQPSK-TG is a highly bandwidth-efficient constant-envelope modulation so that it has been applied in airspace telemetry widely. We compare four types of coherent detectors for SOQPSK-TG, which are optimal detector, pulse truncation (PT) detector, standard OQPSK detector and modified OQPSK detector. The simulation and analysis results indicate that PT detector has the advantages of low complexity and good performance, so it has more practicality value.

Noise-limited performance of a hybrid detector and high-resolution display monitors.Browne, Michael Patrick. (The University of Arizona., 1991)In this dissertation I describe the analysis of two types of electronic devices. The first is an image intensifier/photomultiplier combination used in a laser communications receiver. The second type is high resolution display monitors to be used in digital radiology. The analysis of these devices centered on the influence of noise on their performance though I also measured other device characteristics. I present here a method of characterizing noise that can be used for a variety of detector and display devices; however, I concentrated my analysis on an optical communication receiver by ITT and high resolution display monitors by MegaScan, Tektronix and US Pixel. The optical receiver is called a hybrid device because it combines an image intensifier (II) and a photomultiplier tube. The II has a large active area and its specially processed photocathode gives it an extended red response. The photomultiplier tube (PMT) provides a high gain, low noise and low dark current. The hybrid tube had a maximum gain of 8 x 10⁶, a noise factor of 1.64 and an information capacity of 1.3 x 10⁶ bits per second. The high resolution monitors we examined were black and white monitors with a pixel matrix of at least 1024 x 1536 pixels and 256 grey levels. The maximum luminance from the monitors was 88 ft-Lamberts (for the US Pixel monitor) and a maximum information capacity of 8.9 x 10⁶ bits (for the MegaScan monitor). We measured spatial and temporal noise for the monitors. Spatial noise was the dominant noise, except at low grey levels. Veiling glare was evident in all three monitors and dramatically reduced the dynamic ranges of the monitors.
EXTENDING THE RANGE OF PCM/FM USING A MULTISYMBOL DETECTOR AND TURBO CODINGGeoghegan, Mark; Nova Engineering Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2002-10)It has been shown that a multi-symbol detector can improve the detection efficiency of PCM/FM by 3 dB when compared to traditional methods without any change to the transmitted waveform. Although this is a significant breakthrough, further improvements are possible with the addition of Forward Error Correction (FEC). Systematic redundancy can be added by encoding the source data prior to the modulation process, thereby allowing channel errors to be corrected using a decoding circuit. Better detection efficiency translates into additional link margin that can be used to extend the operating range, support higher data throughput, or significantly improve the quality of the received data. This paper investigates the detection efficiency that can be achieved using a multisymbol detector and turbo product coding. The results show that this combination can improve the detection performance by nearly 9 dB relative to conventional PCM/FM systems. The increase in link margin is gained at the expense of a small increase in bandwidth and the additional complexity of the encoding and decoding circuitry.
Investigations into new approaches for analyzing pharmaceuticals through the use of array detector imaging of high-performance TLC and well platesSimon, Richard Edward (The University of Arizona., 1999)New methods of analyzing pharmaceuticals by high performance thin-layer chromatography and microplate imaging were investigated using array imaging technology. Both techniques provide high sample throughput over more traditional analytical techniques for the analysis of pharmaceuticals. HPTLC provides high sample throughput by performing separations in parallel using a planar stationary phase. Imaging the entire plate with a single exposure performs quantitation of the analytes in the chromatographic medium. Fluorescence and fluorescence quenching detection modes are presented by employing tetracyclines, famotidine, and several over the counter drugs as model compounds. Studies conducted include sensitivity, separation efficiency and reproducibility of the system. Microplate imaging allows for the quantitation of numerous analytes in parallel. In this technique, solutions containing the analyte of interest are deposited into numerous self-contained wells on microplates, also known as 96-wellplates or ELISA plates. Light is passed through the wells of the plate allowing for absorption, fluorescence, or fluorescence quenching. Imaging with an array detector enables the researcher to simultaneously quantitate each well in parallel. The reaction between primary amines, ampicillin and amoxicillin, and fluorescamine was investigated. Microplate imaging was also tested for quantitating analytes in the low UV region (254 nm).
