Experimental evaluation of ultrasonic oscillating temperature sensors (UOTS) under cyclically changing temperatures (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Hashmi, A., Kalashnikov, A. N., & Light, R. A. (2015). Experimental evaluation of ultrasonic oscillating temperature sensors (UOTS) under cyclically changing temperatures

In contrast to most conventional temperature sensors, which need to come to thermal equilibrium with the medium of interest to report its temperature, UOTS interrogate the medium based on the propagation speed of ultrasound, and will return temperatu...

Estimating current derivatives for sensorless motor drive applications (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Hind, D. M., Sumner, M., & Gerada, C. (2015). Estimating current derivatives for sensorless motor drive applications

The PWM current derivative technique for sensorless control of AC machines requires current derivative measurements under certain PWM vectors. This is often not possible under narrow PWM vectors due to high frequency (HF) oscillations which affect th... Read More about Estimating current derivatives for sensorless motor drive applications.

Threshold manipulation in parity-time symmetric microresonator chain (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Phang, S., Vukovic, A., Creagh, S., Benson, T. M., Gradoni, G., & Sewell, P. D. (2015). Threshold manipulation in parity-time symmetric microresonator chain

This paper analyses the eigenfrequencies of an infinitely long chain of microresonators with PT symmetry. The results show that the depth of modulation of the real part of the refractive index can be used to control the threshold point of the PT stru...

Separate phase-locking and coherent combining of two laser diodes in a Michelson cavity (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Schimmel, G., Doyen, I., Janicot, S., Ramirez, L., Hanna, M., Georges, P., …Larkins, E. (2015). Separate phase-locking and coherent combining of two laser diodes in a Michelson cavity. In High-Power Diode Laser Technology and Applications XIIIdoi:10.1117/12.2079314

We describe a new coherent beam combining architecture based on passive phase-locking of two laser diodes in a Michelson external cavity on their rear facet, and their coherent combination on the front facet. As a proof-of-principle, two ridge lasers... Read More about Separate phase-locking and coherent combining of two laser diodes in a Michelson cavity.
