Knowledge-Based Physical Design Automation

  • Ackland B.

This paper examines the role of knowledge based programming techniques in the computer aided design of VLSI circuits. It will be published as a chapter in a book entitled "Physical Design Automation - Concepts and Algorithms" being edited by Bryan Preas and Michael Lorenzetti. The paper begins by examining the ...

Confirmation of High-Velocity UV Fe and Si Absorption Lines from the Remnant of Sn 1006

  • Fesen R.
  • Leventhal M.
  • Wu C.

We have obtained new low dispersion IUE spectra of a faint sdOB star (the 'Schweizer-Middleditch' star) located in the direction to the center of the remnant of SN 1006. Analysis of three spectra of this star covering the region 1200-3000A together with a re-analysis of its previously published spectra (Wu ...

When is it Coming Out in Paperback?

  • Wilson L.

Suppose you are planning to publish a book in hardcover and possibly also in paperback. You have a limited time before the next "best seller" comes along and steals your market. Selling a copy of the hardcover book gives you a larger profit. On the other hand, more people will ...

Multistable Mode Locking of InGaAsP Semiconductor Lasers

  • Ippen E.
  • Kuznetsov M.
  • Liau Z.
  • Tsang D.
  • Walpole J.

InGaAsP lasers with a proton-bombarded segment emit picosecond pulses at gigahertz rates. With an AR coated diode in an external cavity, the pulsation becomes multistable. Interlocking hysteresis loops are observed in the pulsation frequency, pulse width, and output power as functions of the bias current. An isolated state is also ...

Some Fortran subroutines for Computing the Singular Value Decomposition of a real Matrix

  • Hodgins J.
  • Kaufman L.

In this paper we specify the calling sequences of several FORTRAN programs for computing the singular value decomposition (SVD) of a matrix and computing the solution of the linear least squares problem using the SVD of the coefficient matrix. The SVD of a matrix is helpful in indicating the condition ...

Cluster Growth and Core-electron Spectra

  • Dicenzo S.
  • Wertheim G.

The coverage dependence of the intensity, binding energy, and line shape of core electron photoemission spectra provide constraints on models for both cluster growth and core level shifts. Data from various sources for cluster of Au, Ag, Pd, Pt, and Sn grown on amorphous carbon show that: (1) The photoemission ...

Electron Spin Resonance in Si:P Near the Metal-Insulator Transition

  • Paalanen M.

We have measured the low field ESR line of a barely metallic Si:P sample as a function of temperature between 1K and 0.01K.

Pulsed Optoacoustic Spectroscopy for Calorimetry without a Standard

  • Jedju T.
  • Lawrence K.
  • Rothberg L.

A method which relies on no reference absorber to deduce yields for heat deposition following pulsed laser irradiation is described. Pulsed optoacoustic detection is used and signals are calibrated based on the excitation wavelength dependence of the heat yield. The apparatus is used to measure flourescence yields of several well ...
