    Fiber Optics

    When the frequency of a signal is increased, so does the transfer rate. On the electromagnetic spectrum, light waves occupy frequency ranges of several hundred Terahertz. Fiber optics and photonics take advantage of the speed of light waves to allow for a different approach to data communications. When using light waves instead of electrical charges, this drastically alters the normal characteristics of electrical information transfer. A light wave being sent through glass in a fiber optic wire is no longer restricted to Ohm’s law for example, since a light wave will move through a resistor without any loss. Although light waves are susceptible to quantum noise, they are immune to noise caused by heat (in many cases, this means they are virtually noise-less). Fiber optics, due to their high data rates, flexibility and immunity to noise offer an extraordinary opportunity for scientific and engineering progress.

    RCS/ISAR Data Acquisition

    The following MATLAB program utilizes a set of data acquired using an oscilloscope to test a demodulator. This is part of a project being undertaken at the UMASS Dartmouth RF/Photonics Lab. To view a published version of the code: rcs20190925.
