    Abstract: A single shot autocorrelator for measuring duration of an ultrashort laser pulse in the far field, having a beam splitter to form two beams from an input ultrashort pulse: the reflected beam is firstly reflected by two mirrors mounted on a translation stage for adjusting time delay and subsequently a third mirror, and after focused by a spherical convex lens, enters a naturally grown strontium barium niobate crystal along the crystal z axis; the transmitted beam is firstly focused by a spherical convex lens, and after reflected by two mirrors, enters the crystal along the crystal z axis from opposite direction. The crystal is in the common focal regions of two spherical convex lenses and generates the transverse second harmonic pulse beam that is the autocorrelation signal to be recorded, which is imaged with an optical microscope onto a charge coupled device camera mounted perpendicular to the beams.

  • Patent number: 10701672
    Abstract: A mobile terminal in a wireless communication network may be one of several modes of operation. When in an idle mode, the mobile terminal may avoid a lengthy random access procedure normally associated with responding to a page from a base station, if the base station includes in the page an indication of a resource that the mobile terminal may utilize when responding to the page. Additionally, the mobile terminal may transmit an efficient location update MAC header to a base station, whether prompted to by a page from the base station or not. Furthermore, without leaving the idle mode or a sleep mode, the mobile terminal may exchange short data burst messages with a base station.

  • Patent number: 10700905
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for improving channel estimation within an OFDM communication system. Channel estimation in OFDM is usually performed with the aid of pilot symbols. The pilot symbols are typically spaced in time and frequency. The set of frequencies and times at which pilot symbols are inserted is referred to as a pilot pattern. In some cases, the pilot pattern is a diagonal-shaped lattice, either regular or irregular. The method first interpolates in the direction of larger coherence (time or frequency). Using these measurements, the density of pilot symbols in the direction of faster change will be increased thereby improving channel estimation without increasing overhead. As such, the results of the first interpolating step can then be used to assist the interpolation in the dimension of smaller coherence (time or frequency).

  • Publication number: 20200205105
    Abstract: An embodiment method for wireless communication includes grouping a plurality of user equipments (UEs) wirelessly coupled to a cellular base station (BS) into a UE cluster to function as a Wi-Fi virtual station (V-STA), and communicating with an access point (AP) to contend for a Wi-Fi transmission opportunity (TXOP) for the V-STA. In a further embodiment, the cellular BS contends for the TXOP on behalf of the UE cluster using a carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA-CA) procedure. In an alternative embodiment, one UE in the UE cluster is selected as a leader UE to contend for the TXOP on behalf of the UE cluster using a CSMA-CA procedure.

  • Patent number: 10693535
    Abstract: A high-order Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) transmitter implementing a covariance-based precoding scheme that exploits transmit channel correlation and a method of operation thereof are provided. In one embodiment, covariance-based precoding is performed at the high-order MIMO transmitter based on feedback from a remote high-order MIMO receiver regarding a covariance-based precoding matrix. The covariance-based precoding matrix is, or is derived from, a transmit channel correlation matrix determined by the high-order MIMO receiver for the high-order MIMO transmitter. The covariance-based precoding provides a beam-forming effect when there is a relatively high degree of transmit channel correlation, thereby improving performance of the high-order MIMO transmitter. Further, because changes in the transmit channel correlation occur relatively slowly over time, feedback overhead requirements are substantially reduced as compared to that required for traditional MIMO precoding schemes.

  • Patent number: 10693693
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for reducing the number of pilot symbols within a MIMO-OFDM communication system, and for improving channel estimation within such a system. For each transmitting antenna in an OFDM transmitter, pilot symbols are encoded so as to be unique to the transmitting antenna. The encoded pilot symbols are then inserted into an OFDM frame to form a diamond lattice, the diamond lattices for the different transmitting antennae using the same frequencies but being offset from each other by a single symbol in the time domain. At the OFDM receiver, a channel response is estimated for a symbol central to each diamond of the diamond lattice using a two-dimensional interpolation. The estimated channel responses are smoothed in the frequency domain. The channel responses of remaining symbols are then estimated by interpolation in the frequency domain.

  • Patent number: 10686512
    Abstract: Spatial multiplexing and transmit diversity can improve the capacity of a wireless communication system. The system and method adapts communication schemes for communication systems with multiple antennas utilizing at least two transmission modes. The at least two transmission modes can, but are not necessarily, used for uplink communications. The two transmission modes may be chosen from the group consisting of a single antenna mode, a diversity mode a spatial multiplexed mode and a mixed diversity and spatial multiplexed mode. The at least two transmission modes may involve adaptation among multiple transmitters. At least one receiver may indicate a transmission mode to be used by a transmitter for a subsequent transmission. A transmitter may determine a transmission mode to be used for a subsequent transmission. The transmission mode can be based on channel sounding.

  • Patent number: 10680734
    Abstract: Soft information for achieving interference cancellation in downlink transmissions can be communicated over device-to-device (D2D) links, thereby allowing paired user equipments (UEs) to receive downlink transmissions over the same radio resources. More specifically, paired UEs that receive transmissions over the same time-frequency resources may exchange soft or hard information over D2D links in order to facilitate interference cancellation. The D2D links may be unidirectional or bidirectional, and may be established over in-band or out-of-band resources. Paired UEs may be in the same or different cells, and may receive their respective transmissions from the same or different transmit point. UEs may be paired with one another based on various criteria, e.g., interference cancellation capabilities, scheduling metrics, etc.

  • Publication number: 20200177246
    Abstract: The present invention employs a pilot scheme for frequency division multiple access (FDM) communication systems, such as single carrier FDM communication systems. A given transmit time interval will include numerous traffic symbols and two or more short pilot symbols, which are spaced apart from one another by at least one traffic symbol and will have a Fourier transform length that is less than the Fourier transform length of any given traffic symbol. Multiple transmitters will generate pilot information and modulate the pilot information onto sub-carriers of the short pilot symbols in an orthogonal manner. Each transmitter may use different sub-carriers within the time and frequency domain, which is encompassed by the short pilot symbols within the transmit time interval. Alternatively, each transmitter may uniquely encode the pilot information using a unique code division multiplexed code and modulate the encoded pilot information onto common sub-carriers of the short pilot symbols.
