A circuit is provided for developing a television synchronization signal and an automatic gain control (AGC) signal. A composite video signal is coupled to the input of a D.C. threshold noise inverter which inverts impulse noise above a predetermined threshold level. The inverted noise signal and a delayed video signal are coupled to a peak detecting sync separator which generates a noise-free sync signal. The noise-free sync signal is coupled to a latching circuit, where it is combined with a… 

Realistic polarizing Sagnac topology with DC readout for the Einstein Telescope

The Einstein Telescope (ET) is a proposed future gravitational wave detector. Its design is original, using a triangular orientation of three detectors and a xylophone configuration, splitting each

Gravitational wave detection with optical lattice atomic clocks

We propose a space-based gravitational wave (GW) detector consisting of two spatially separated, drag-free satellites sharing ultrastable optical laser light over a single baseline. Each satellite

Matter-wave interferometry of a levitated thermal nano-oscillator induced and probed by a spin.

This work proposes to use an optically levitated diamond bead containing a nitrogen-vacancy center spin to show how the interference between spatially separated states of the center of mass of a mesoscopic harmonic oscillator can be evidenced by coupling it to a spin and performing solely spin manipulations and measurements (Ramsey interferometry).

Searching for gravitational-wave signals emitted by eccentric compact binaries using a non-eccentric template bank: implications for ground-based detectors

Most of the inspiralling compact binaries are expected to be circularized by the time their gravitational-wave signals enter the frequency band of ground-based detectors such as LIGO or VIRGO.

Quantum noise of non-ideal Sagnac speed meter interferometer with asymmetries

The speed meter concept has been identified as a technique that can potentially provide laser-interferometric measurements at a sensitivity level which surpasses the standard quantum limit (SQL) over

The renewed serious interest to possible practical applications of gravitational waves is encouraging. Building on previous work, I am arguing that the strong variable electromagnetic fields are

Search method for long-duration gravitational-wave transients from neutron stars

We introduce a search method for a new class of gravitational-wave signals, namely, long-duration Oðhours-weeksÞ transients from spinning neutron stars. We discuss the astrophysical motivation from

Detection of gravitational waves: from nanohertz to the audio band

The existence of gravitational waves was first predicted by Einstein’s general theory of relativity a century ago. However gravitational waves have not yet been directly detected. Their direct

Effect of small interpulsar distances in stochastic gravitational wave background searches with pulsar timing arrays

One of the primary objectives for pulsar timing arrays (PTAs) is to detect a stochastic background generated by the incoherent superposition of gravitational waves (GWs), in particular from the

Quantum Limitations On The Storage And Transmission Of Information

It is shown that acceleration of a receiver acts to block information transfer, and the time-energy uncertainty principle is reformulated in information language by means of the linear bound.
