The current high-growth nature of digital communications demands higher speed serial communication circuits. Present day technologies barely manage to keep up with the present need to communicate at high speeds (e.g., gigabit, terabit, and higher transmission speeds). New techniques are needed to ensure that methods for serial communication can continue to expand and grow. A…
Ceramics are used in applications requiring strength, hardness, light weight, and resistance to abrasion, erosion, and corrosion, at both ambient and elevated temperatures. However, traditional ceramic materials are characteristically brittle, and this brittleness limits their use. While reduction of brittleness has been obtained with fiber-reinforced ceramic matrix composites…
Living polymerization is a method by which polymers having a narrow molecular weight distribution may be obtained. Block copolymers may also be synthesized using the method. Block copolymers may display improved mechanical andor chemical properties over corresponding random copolymers. One promising method for free radical polymerization with living characteristics is…
Most forms of communication rely on transmission of groups of discrete elements arranged in a manner that is understood by both the transmitting and a receiving party. Accurate communication between the transmitter and a receiver depends on the message formed by the groups of discrete elements, or symbols, being transmitted uncorrupted and intact between the two parties.…
Anionic polymerization processes variously termed living, controlled, or immortal are used to synthesize polymers having a narrow molecular weight distribution and low polydispersity (1.5). These processes are so named because polymerization generally occurs by addition of monomer units to a constant number of growing polymer chains until all monomer has been consumed; if more…
As a greater number of people begin to access the Internet through high speed connections, the content offered is expanding. One method of broadcasting video and audio streams over the Internet is Multicasting. However, as use of multitask protocols and acknowledgement signals for each packet sent increases, so does congestion over the internet. Therefore, there exists a need…
Cationic polymerization is employed in many commercially important applications, including, for example, decorative and abrasion resistant coatings, printing inks, adhesives, fiber reinforced composites, microelectronic encapsulations, tan coatings, pressure sensitive adhesives, high performance aerospace composites, fiber optic coatings, stereolithography, photoresist and…
In modern microcircuits, the high-frequency capacitance of interlevel dielectrics is a critical parameter that must be understood for realization of high-speed (clock speed1 GHz) electronic devices. The characterization of the high-frequency dielectric properties of interlevel dielectrics is thereby crucial. For free-space dielectric constant measurement of the film on a…
Electro-optic crystals and photoconductive dipole antennas have been widely used in terahertz (THz) time-domain spectroscopy and related imaging applications. In the standard apparatus used for THz time-domain spectroscopy a separate transmitter and receiver are used for the emission and detection of the THz signal. Because detection is the reverse process of emission, the…
Displacement chromatography is a powerful preparative technique that can offer high production rates, resolving power and elevated yields and purity of a desired byproduct. Historically, it was necessary to screen displacer candidates individually in column experiments using trial and error, a very laborious task. The present invention relates to a method for screening a…
