Design and evaluation of an atmospheric laser communication link utilizing an infrared emitting injection laser diode
The design of a digital optical communication link operating over a short atmospheric path is presented. The system utilizes direct detection technique to detect the pulses transmitted by a Gallium Arsenide injection laser ...
Determinants of pay satisfaction: a discrepancy model evaluation
Attitudes toward pay like other aspects of job satisfaction have been researched extensively. Deficiencies in this research area (e.g., little systematic theory building and single variable predictions of pay satisfaction) ...
A preliminary investigation of the relationship between individual verbal behavior and aggressive reactions
Purpose of the Study. The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between aggression (as measured by the Rosensweig Picture-Frustration Study) and language usage. Subjects. The subjects were forty-seven ...
A study of low noise transistorized amplifier input stages
The design of transistorized amplifiers for the special purpose of handling very small signals, at low frequencies, has always posed a problem to the circuit designer, due to the undesired presence of noise. Noise, as ...
An examination of variables which influence student ratings of university faculty
ABSTRACT The purposes of the study were two-fold: (a) to estimate the reliability of the Student Course and Teacher Examination (SCATE) instrument on a class by class basis, and (b) to determine the extent to which selected ...
Effects of practice and speed on Negro and white mental ability test performances
This research investigated the hypotheses that 1) extra pretest practice, 2) extra testing time, and 3) extra practice - extra testing time would improve the mental ability test performances of Negroes more than whites. [...]
Ray paths in layered ocean models with regional mass velocities
The generalized vector Eikonal Equation is solved in order to obtain the expression for the radius of curvature for an inhomogeneous ocean. Such ray path calculations have considerable number of applications including the ...
Studies on the periodate oxidation product of [beta]-D-ribosyl-6-methylthiopurine
This study is concerned with the oxidation product of 9-ÃŸ-D-ribosyl-6-methylthiopurine. The oxidation product was synthesized in several steps from inosine. 6-mercaptopurine riboside was radiolabeled using sulfur-35. The ...
A study of model simplification techniques in system design
Various reasons for simplifying a system are given, and some of the existing techniques are listed. The two techniques (one in the frequency domain and one in the time domain) chosen for this thesis are described. For a ...
The use of motion picture film in television broadcasting
It will be the purpose of this study to review the existing film policies of local television broadcasters, to establish existing trends in the use of film material, to establish average equipment requirements and preferences, ...
