The spin of a single electron or hole provides an attractive candidate for implementing a quantum bit when confined in a semiconductor quantum dot. Such a spin qubit is characterized by long coherence and short gate times. High-fidelity single and two-qubit operations have been demonstrated as well. Additionally, semiconductor quantum dots have...

In recent decades, dielectric lens antennas have been more and more adopted and developed for sensing and imaging applications at sub-millimeter (sub-mm) wavelengths because they can achieve high gain while keeping their physical size and weight acceptable at these wavelengths. More recently, as low-loss and low-cost lens materials have become...

Detecting nearby vehicles involves utilizing data from various sensors installed on a car as it moves. Common sensors for identifying nearby vehicles include LiDAR, cameras, and RADAR. However, all of these sensors suffer from the same issue -- they cannot detect an approaching vehicle that is not yet visible. Hence, this thesis explores the...

During the operation of an LED array, its thermal and optical performances are always not equal to the superposition of the individual LED's characteristics because of a significant thermal coupling effect between the arrays. Based on this, this paper proposes an electrical–photo-thermal model, with considering both junction temperature and...

An innovative reconfigurable beamforming network concept for multiple high-gain agile and mutually zero-forced beam generation is proposed. Four-port couplers and variable phase shifters are used to synthesize the network. A 2 beam by 7 element beam former is designed and fabricated as proof of concept. A static scenario with the two beams...

Achieving nanoscale strain fields mapping in intricate van der Waals (vdW) nanostructures, like twisted flakes and nanorods, presents several challenges due to their complex geometry, small size, and sensitivity limitations. Understanding these strain fields is pivotal as they significantly influence the optoelectronic properties of vdW...

MRI systems have a thin conducting layer placed between the gradient and RF coils, this acts as a shield at the RF-frequency, minimizing noise coupled into the experiment, and decreasing the coupling between the RF and gradient coils. Ideally, this layer should be transparent to the gradient fields to reduce eddy currents. In this work the...

We present a dual-polarized connected array of slots with an artificial dielectric layer (ADL) radome for mobile communication applications operating in the sub-6 GHz and the upper 6 GHz bands of 5G. The radiating slots are combined with two interchangeable ADL radomes with different thicknesses, targeting the bands 6-8 and 2-8 GHz,...

While probabilistic constellation shaping (PCS) enables rate and reach adaption with finer granularity [1] (Cho and Winzer, 2009), it imposes signal processing challenges at the receiver. Since the distribution of PCS-quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) signals tends to be Gaussian, conventional blind polarization demultiplexing algorithms...

Mitigation strategies which eliminate existing space debris, such as with Active Space Debris Removal (ASDR) missions, are now more important than ever regarding the ever-growing space debris population problem. One of the considered ASDR approaches uses a net as a capturing strategy. The benefits of such strategy are to allow for a large...
