An Overview of C++ (DRAFT)

  • Stroustrup B.

Intoduction: C++ is a general purpose programming language (3) designed to make programming more enjoyable for the serious programmer. Except for minor details, C++ is a superset of the C language(2).

What is 'Object Oriented Programming'?

  • Stroustrup B.

Object-Oriented Programming and Data Abstraction have become very common terms. Unfortunately, few people agree on what they mean. This paper will offer informal definitions that appears to make sense in the context of languages like Ada, C++, Modula-2, Simula67, and Smalltalk.

Kinetic Alfven Wave in a Curved Field Line

  • Hasegawa A.

A theory of kinetic Alfven wave in a curved field line is presented for high and low beta plasmas with or without the presence of a cold plasma. The curved field line produces two important effects. One is the ballooning effect due to the centrifugal force acting upon bounding particles ...

Transmission Electron Microscopy of Defects in Epitaxial Layers: In-Situ and Ex-Situ Studies

  • Gibson J.

Heteroepitaxy has become a technologically important process in recent years, for example with the growth of GaAs on Si. We present a review of transmission electron microscope (TEM) studies of GaAs on Si and other epitaxial systems which elucidate the nature and origin of defects in these layers. Additional insight ...

Self-Organization of Electrostatic Turbulence in a Cylindrical Plasma

  • Hasegawa A.

Based on theory and computer simulations we show that electrostatic turbulence in a cylindrical plasma with magnetic shear and curvature self-organizes to form a macroscopic potential phi which depends only on the radial coordinate r given by phi(r) approximately equals J sub o (pr) + C sub 1 r sup ...

MHD Transport Code

  • Hasegawa A.

We present a concept of a new code in which electron transports in MHD activities are traced by particle pushing while the ions are treated as MHD fluid thereby the major difficulty of an MHD code which arises from the electron heat conduction is overcome. The basic concept is to ...

Dielectric Ceramics

  • Yan M.

We have studied the phase stability of Pb(A sub x B sub y ) O sub 3 compositions containing a combination of pentavalent cation and divalent or trivalent cations.

Machine Vision for Process Improvement: A Design Experience

  • Gerth D.
  • Lackey J.
  • Longenbaker W.

The field of machine vision is concerned with the building of machines that sense and interpret their environment.

A High Density Interconnect Technology for VLSI-Based Systems

  • Bartlett C.
  • Bertram W.
  • Fuls E.

Conventional Packaging of VLSI-Based IC's places serious limitations on system performance as higher I/O demands and higher speeds become required.

A Comparison of Hg sub 1-x Cd sub x Te and Hg sub 1-x Zn sub x Te Grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy

  • Austin R.
  • Bridenbaugh P.
  • Feldman R.

The material systems Hg sub 1-x Cd sub x Te (MCT) and Hg sub 1-x Zn sub x Te (MZT) have been studied for their application to long wavelength infrared detection.

Electron Scattering Distribution in InP at 50 kV

  • Denker J.
  • Doran G.
  • Howard R.
  • Tennant D.

High resolution patterning of InP is gaining importance for electronic and photonic applications such as DFB lasers and high speed transistors. Electron beam lithography is the highest resolution and most flexible technology for these applications. Unfortunately, backscattered electron effects become an imposing limitation when both coarse and fine pattern features ...

Low-Loss High-Power InGaAs/InGaAsP Quantum Well Lasers Grown by Atmosphere OMVPE

  • Koch T.
  • Koren U.
  • Miller B.
  • Su Y.

Low=loss separate-confinement heterostructure quantum well (SCH-QW) lasers grown by atmospheric OMVPE had thresholds as low as 20 ma and power outputs as high as 42 mW/facet for a 600micron long cavity at 1.54 micron wavelength.

Determination of Intervalley Scattering Rates in GaAs by Subpicosecond Luminescence Spectroscopy

  • Damen T.
  • Deveaud B.
  • Gossard A.
  • Shah J.
  • Tsang W.

We report a slow rise of luminescence in GaAs following subpicosecond excitation and show that it results from a slow return of electrons from the L to the Gamma valley.

On the Preservation of Polarization Orthogonality through a Linear Optical System

  • Cimini L.
  • Habbab I.
  • John R.
  • Saleh A.

When two orthogonally polarized optical waves are launched into an optical medium, they may experience a loss in orthogonality. In this paper, we derive a bound on this loss. This bound depends only on the maximum and minimum power transfer coefficients of the optical medium for all possible states of ...

Iterated Combinatorial Density Theorems

  • Frankl P.
  • Graham R.
  • Rodl V.

O. Introduction: There are many theorems in combinatorics of "Ramsey-" or "partition-" type for which a stronger density form actually holds. An excellent example of this is illustrated by the classical theorem of vanderWaerden ([16]. [6], [9]) on arithmetic progressions...

Transparent Nonlinear Optical Devices

  • Gabriel M.

Proposals in the literature for the development of devices based on ultrafast, nonresonant nonlinearities have concentrated on demonstrating the existence and measuring the size and speed of the physical phenomenon. However, even when an interaction between light pulses can be described in terms of a logic operation, a viable device ...

  • Gottscho R.
  • Murnick D.
  • Robinson R.

Laser optogalvanic (LOG) studies of the lowest resonance and metastable levels in an Argon rf glow discharge indicated the importance of inelastic scattering of low energy electrons in maintaining discharge equilibrium. [1]

A Multi-Token Scheme of Input Buffering for a Packet Switch (NOT PUBLISHED)

  • Lin S.

In a statistical packet switch, buffers are needed to handle contention from multiple bursty traffic. One can place buffers at inputs, at outputs or inside the fabric of a switch.
