— This paper describes the system architecture and design procedure for an integrated 60-GHz direct-conversion transceiver with integrated digital control interface on a 130-nm CMOS process. This transceiver incorporates both a transmitter and receiver. The transmitter achieves a P sat of 6.5 dBm, an O P1dB of 1.6 dBm. The receiver achieves a conversion(More)
This study was conducted to: (1) test the utility of a new and rapid analytical method, pyrolysis molecular beam mass spectrometry (py-MBMS), for the measurement and characterization of carbon in forest soils, and (2) examine the effects of natural disturbance on soil carbon dynamics. An additional objective was to test the ability of py-MBMS to distinguish(More)
A method of extracting extracellularly recorded action potentials from background electronic noise is described. Segments of traces containing stimulus-induced activity are Fourier transformed and the increase in the total power density over that of control noise segments is used as a measure of stimulus-induced neuronal activity. We show first, with(More)
An electrostatic power generator converts mechanical energy to electrical energy by utilising the principle of variable capacitance. This change in capacitance is usually achieved by varying the gap or overlap between two parallel metallic plates. This paper proposes a novel electrostatic micro power generator where the change in capacitance is achieved by(More)
Although the distinction between magnesiodumortieite and dumortierite, i.e. Mg vs. Al dominance at the partially vacant octahedral Al1 site, had met current criteria of the IMA Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification (CNMNC) for distinguishing mineral species, the distinction between holtite and dumortierite had not, since Al and Si are(More)
