Interferometric optical fiber sensors have proved many orders of magnitude more sensitive than their electrical counterparts, but they suffer from limitations in signal demodulation caused by phase ambiguity and complex fringe counting when the output phase difference exceeds one fringe period. Various signal demodulation methods have been developed to(More)
(Abstract) In this thesis, the optical communication systems for millimeter-scale sensing and communication devises known as " Smart Dust " are described and analyzed. A smart dust element is a self-contained sensing and communication system that can be combine d into roughly a cubic-millimeter mote to perform integrated, massively distributed sensor(More)

We describe a system for tracking the motion and determining the velocity of the human eye using a combination of fiber optics and imaging optics integrated with a CCD camera, a framegrabber, and a PC. Systems such as the one we describe are needed for monitoring location of interest for better human-computer interfaces and virtual reality simulations, for(More)
This dissertation demonstrates the feasibility of using novel electrostatic self-assembly (ESA) methods to fabricate linear and nonlinear optical thin films and components. The ESA process involves the layer-by-layer alternate adsorption of anionic and cationic complexes from aqueous solutions. Selection of the molecules in each layer, their orientation at(More)
Quantized conductance is observed at zero magnetic field and room temperature in metal-insulator-metal structures with graphene submicron-sized nanoplatelets embedded in a 3-hexylthiophene (P3HT) polymer layer. In devices with medium concentration of graphene platelets, integer multiples of G o = 2e (2)/h (=12.91 kΩ(-1)), and in some devices partially(More)
(ABSTRACT) Multiplexing has evolved over the years from Emile Baudot's method of transmitting six simultaneous telegraph signals over one wire to the high-speed mixed-signal communications systems that are now commonplace. The evolution started with multiplexing identical information sources, such as plain old telephone service (POTS) devices. Recently,(More)
