Multiplexing, Scheduling, and Multicasting Strategies for Antenna Arrays in Wireless Networks
A transmitter antenna array has the ability to direct data simultaneously to multiple receivers within a wireless network, creating potential for a more integrated view of algorithmic system components. In this thesis, ...
Successive structuring of source coding algorithms for data fusion, buffering, and distribution in networks
(cont.) We also explore the interactions between source coding and queue management in problems of buffering and distributing distortion-tolerant data. We formulate a general queuing model relevant to numerous communication ...
A precision millimeter-wave measurement of the Rydberg frequency
The Rydberg frequency, cR[infinity], sets the frequency scale for the spectrum of hydrogen atoms. From a frequency measurement of one transition in hydrogen, cR[infinity] can be extracted and the frequency of any other ...
Laser Micromachining of Active and Passive Photonic Integrated Circuits
This thesis describes the development of advanced laser resonators and applications of laserinduced micromachining for photonic circuit fabrication. Two major advantages of laserinduced micromachining are direct patterning ...
Ultrabright Source of Polarization-Entangled Photons from Cavity-Enhanced Downconversion
This thesis describes the design, construction, and testing of a new source of entan- glement. The goal is to produce pairs of photons which are not only polarization- entangled, but also have a high brightness within a ...
Single-Photon Frequency Upconversion for Long-Distance Quantum Teleportation and Communication
Entanglement generation, single-photon detection, and frequency translation that preserves the polarization quantum state of the photons are essential technologies for long distance quantum communication protocols. This ...
