A CMOS RF digitally programmable gain amplifier, covering various terrestrial mobile Digital TV standards (DMB, ISDB-T, and DVB-H) is implemented. 13 dB IIP3 improvement is attained without losing out on other performance criteria like gain, NF, CMRR, etc. at similar power consumption. This is achieved by applying a newly proposed differential circuit gm�(More)
A UHF mobile single chip RFID reader is implemented in 0.18 mum CMOS process. Developed IC achieves DA output power of 3 dBm, <i>OIP</i>3 of 14.8 dBm, phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz at 100 kHz offset, noise figure of 35.5 dB for talk mode, 6.2 dB for listen before talk (LBT) mode, and current consumption of 108 mA from a 1.8 V supply. With an external PA, Tx(More)
Trust based approaches have been widely used to counter insider attacks in wireless sensor networks because traditional cryptography-based security mechanisms such as authentication and authorization are not effective against such attacks. A trust model, which is the core component of a trust mechanism, provides a quantitative way to evaluate the(More)
A low power high linear transmitter for mobile WiBro and WiMAX is developed. The transmitter is fabricated in a 0.18 mum 1P6M CMOS process for low power characteristics and SoC compatibility. To achieve high linearity performance with low power consumption, the transmitter employs new linearization methods. Linear transconductor is used for the transmitter(More)
Lanthanide-doped upconverting nanoparticles (UCNPs, NaYF4:Yb(3+),Er(3+)) are well known for emitting visible photons upon absorption of two or more near-infrared (NIR) photons through energy transfer from the sensitizer (Yb(3+)) to the activator (Er(3+)). Of the visible emission bands (two green and one red band), it has been suggested that the red emission(More)
Multi-dye-sensitized upconverting nanoparticles (UCNPs), which harvest photons of wide wavelength range (450-975 nm) are designed and synthesized. The UCNPs embedded in a photo-acid generating layer are integrated on destructible nonvolatile resistive memory device. Upon illumination of light, the system permanently erases stored data, achieving enhanced(More)
The modification of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) samples by sequencing the order of bases and doping copper ions opens the possibility for the design of novel nanomaterials exhibiting large optical nonlinearity. We investigated the nonlinear characteristics of copper-ion doped double crossover DNA samples for the first time to the best of our knowledge by(More)
We experimentally demonstrated supercontinuum generation through a hollow core photonic bandgap fiber (HC-PBGF) filled with DNA nanocrystals modified by copper ions in a solution. Both double-crossover nano DNA structure and copper-ion-modified structure provided a sufficiently high optical nonlinearity within a short length of hollow optical fiber. Adding(More)
