Provisional Thermodynamic Functions for Para-Hydrogen

Description: The need for thermodynamic functions of para hydrogen, especially in compressed liquid and dense fluid states, prompts the tabulation of these provisional properties, computed by approximate methods utilizing the new PVT data of these reports. Computation and preparation of the tables is discussed under the following: Approximate Computational Methods; Correlation Methods; Discussion of Errors; and Tables of Functions.

Input Impedance of a Probe Antenna Exciting a TEM Cell

Description: Abstract: The input impedance of a probe antenna exciting a transverse electromagnetic (TEM) transmission line cell is formulated by a variational approach. The formulation also utilizes the results from a previous work on the field distribution inside a TEM cell excited by a vertical electrical Hertzian dipole. The final result of imoedance is shown to consist of two distinct terms, which are respectively contributed by the ordinary rectangular waveguide and the gap perturbation. Numerical results for both the real and imaginary parts of the impedance are given. The resistive part is found to be proportional to the square of the probe length, and the reactive part largely capacitive.

Picosecond Time Difference Measurements Utilizing CAMAC-Based ANSI/IEEE-488 Data Acquisition Hardware : Operating Manual IE3, Version 1.0

Description: Abstract: Automated time-difference measurements at the picosecond level have been achieved. The system described combines the best properties of three common methods: the single heterodyne measurement technique, the frequency divider, and the dual-mixer time-difference measurement system. This particular system combines two instrumentation standards, ANSI/IFEE-583 and ANSI/IEEE-488 with new, modular dual-mixer time-difference measurement hardware. The modular, standardized hardware together with the new measurement techniques permit the data acquisition modules to be contained in a standard CAMAC crate. This system, along with an external controller, is capable of measuring eiqht clocks, at the present time, and is expandable to twenty-four clocks with modified software and additional measurement modules. The system noise performance is described by a (rT = 3 x 10^-12 t^-1 for time difference measurements.

An Electric and Magnetic Field Sensor for Simultaneous Electromagnetic Near-Field Measurements -- Theory

Description: Abstract: This paper describes the theory of a single sensor to perform simultaneous electric and magnetic near-field measurements. The theory indicates that it is possible to obtain the magnetic-loop and electric-dipole currents using a loop terminated with identical loads at diametrically opposite points. The theory also indicates that it is possible to obtain an ideal load impedance for achieving equal electric and magnetic field responses of the loop. Preliminary experiments have been performed using plane waves to verify these results. Key words: electric field, electromagnetic interference, electromagnetic radiation, loop, magnetic field, near fields.

The Characteristics of Iris-Fed Millimeterwave Rectangular Microstrip Patch Antennas

Description: From introduction: The fabrication of various iris-fed millimeterwave rectangular microstrip patch antennas is described. A model is proposed to describe the iris-fed antenna. Irises ranging in size from 15 percent of the area of the patch to the fully open waveguide are used to couple energy into the antenna. Resonance of the antenna is observed to be insensitive to the size of the iris for irises up to 115 percent of the size of the patch. A study is also made of th? relationship of coupling to the antenna as a function of position of the iris with respect to the transverse plane of the waveguide, the iris always being centered with respect to the patch. In general, the antenna has a VSWR in the waveguide feed on the order of 5:1 at resonance, except for the fully open waveguide which gives rise to a VSWR of 2.9:1 at resonance. Far-field antenna power patterns are observed to be quite broad with H-plane beamwidths on the order of 1300. Maximum antenna gain is seen to be 4.5 dBi with 3 dBi typical. An initial study is made of the microstrip patch antenna fed from a longitudinal waveguide wall. Results indicate that this feed structure is likely to prove valuable for microstrip patch antennas with coupling at least as good as for the transverse-fed patch added to the possibility of feeding of multiple patches from a single waveguide.

Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer Performance and Calibration Studies

Description: from Introduction: The measurement accuracy of the optical time-domain reflectometer (OTDR) is restricted in some applications by a limited operational dynamic range and by a lack of standardized test procedures. In an effort to better understand these restrictions, we have measured the range of linearity of some avalanche photodiodes used as backscatter detectors. Also, the effect of input launch conditions is examined and a possible standardized OTDR test procedure is proposed. Using these suggestions, we have made comparisons between attenuation values determined by cutback and backscatter methods and found that good agreement is possible. Finally, some methods are described for checking the response. linearity of OTDR systems.
