Vibration sensitivity is an important specification for oscillators on mobile systems, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) etc. These systems must provide superior performance when subject to severe environmental conditions. Electronic oscillators often can provide sufficiently low intrinsic phase modulation (PM) noise to satisfy particular system requirements(More)
Estimation of actual evapotranspiration (ETa) based on remotely sensed imagery is very valuable in agricultural regions where ETa rates can vary greatly from field to field. This research utilizes the image processing model METRIC (Mapping Evapotranspiration at high Resolution with Internalized Calibration) to estimate late season, post-harvest ETa rates(More)
Two series of 2,5-dipyridyl- and 2,5-dithienylphosphole derivatives containing sigma3- or sigma4-P atoms were prepared, and their optical (UV/Vis absorption, fluorescence spectra) and electrochemical properties were systematically evaluated. These physical properties depend mainly on the natures of the 2,5-substituents and of the phosphorus moiety, and they(More)
Trends in high, moderate, and low streamflow conditions from United States Geological Survey (USGS) gauging stations were evaluated for a period of 1951–2013 for 18 selected watersheds in South Dakota (SD) using a modified Mann-Kendall test. Rainfall trends from 21 rainfall observation stations located within 20-km of the streamflow gauging stations were(More)
Accurate measurements of the electrical resistivity, the thermoelectric power and the thermal conductivity of TbZn are reported at the ferromagnetic-structural transition. The temperature derivative of the coefficients is examined. The critical behaviours are understood in terms of conduction electron scattering on spin correlated fluctuations and the(More)
This paper describes the design and implementation of a new class of fully integrated oscillators in standard MMIC technology. Each oscillator comprises of a rectangular waveguide cavity resonator, a loop amplifier, and a phase shifter. Several cavities are constructed on standards GaAs substrate with quality factors of 120-170 between 40-50 GHz. The phase(More)
