Diffractive optical elements such as hyperbolic lens and quasi-spherical lens converting a divergent terahertz beam into the focal line segment perpendicular to the optical axis was designed. Due to the fact that the length of the line segment was longer than the aperture of the designed elements the non-paraxial approach was used. The structures were designed for the narrowband application as kinoform elements. The theoretical approach, computer simulations and experimental results are presented. In the imaging system, the intensity of the radiation in the focal plane was measured by THz point-like detector based on InP heterojunction bipolar transistor.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
