  • Patent number: 10536312
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed for generating, transmitting, and/or receiving a hybrid spread waveform. The hybrid spread waveform may include a data portion and a hybrid guard interval (HGI) portion. The HGI portion may include a fixed prefix portion or a fixed suffix portion, and an adaptive low power tail (LPT) portion. The fixed prefix portion or the fixed suffix portion is a low power cyclic prefix (LPCP). The LPCP may be generated at least based on at least the channel delay spread and a power regrowth length. The adaptive LPT portion may be generated using a zero tail (ZT). The LPT is generated by inserting zeros at IFFT or DFT processing stage. A part of the adaptive LPT portion is used to carry data or control information. A waveform may be switched between a hybrid spread waveform and a fixed-CP waveform, e.g., via control signaling.

  • Publication number: 20190360956
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a method and system for detecting a presence and/or quantity of lead within a section of buried piping, without excavation, by calculating electrical resistance of a section of the piping. At least one embodiment of the present disclosure comprises coupling source leads of wire and sensor leads of wire to separated locations of a section of piping buried in a field setting. After the source leads and sensor leads are coupled, electrical current flow may be delivered to the section of piping via the source leads. A voltage level between the sensor leads may be measured via a voltmeter connected to the sensor leads. Resistance of the section of piping, as a function of the electrical current flow and the measured voltage level, is calculated to determine whether at least a portion of the section of piping includes lead and/or quantity of lead.

  • Patent number: 10329715
    Abstract: A method is provided for decision support in regulating an adhesive coating applied to Yankee dryers. Online sensors are configured to continuously measure stock characteristics, and additional sensors provide actual stock flow rate and machine speed. A controller predicts potential natural coating application from a fibrous sheet generated from the stock to the Yankee dryer surface, substantially in real time, based on the measured characteristics and sensed actual machine values. An output signal may be provided to a display unit, wherein an optimal adhesive coating feed rate may be determined and displayed for operator decision support. The controller may in an automatic mode be configured to regulate the adhesive coating feed rate based on a comparison of one or more determined optimal values associated with respective actual values. The method may include identifying fiber source changes in real time, and predicting a natural coating potential based partly on predetermined correlations.

  • Publication number: 20180375280
    Abstract: A laser system based on nonlinear pulse compression and a LMA optical fiber therefor are provided. The LMA optical fiber is configured to amplify seed light pulses and promote the onset of nonlinear spectral broadening. The LMA optical fiber includes a first section having constant core and cladding diameters and receiving and supporting propagation of the light pulses in multiple transversal modes. The first section is configured to suppress high order modes propagating therealong. The LMA optical fiber further includes a tapered second section receiving the fundamental mode from the first section, the core and cladding diameters increasing gradually along said second section so as to provide an adiabatic transition of the fundamental mode. The LMA optical fiber further includes an optional third section having constant core and cladding diameters. Dispersive compression of the light pulses outputted by the LMA optical fiber provides excellent beam quality and high peak powers.
