A: List of R&D projects under my direction & first supervision

16a. Theoretical analysis and modelling of noise
The interest is to study different types of noise generated in communication systems. AM & FM noise have been modelled and analysed. Uncertainty in measurement of Relative Intensity Noise and Chirp Noise in Semiconductor lasers used as transmitters in Optical Networks is currently under investigation.

15a. Theoretical analysis and patent search on development of novel optical devices such as an optical microphone[ a new project]
Preliminary investigation is being carried out using a purpose made acousto-optic transducer and an optical fibre link as a possible way of transmitting sound optically. we are yet to carry out detailed theoretical analysis on modulation of optical signals by sound followed by demodulation, filtering and amplification at the receiving end of a fibre link. There are other devices for applications in communication & security which can emerge from this search. Patent search is being carried out before embarking on the programme in collaboration with national and/or international companies.

14a. Novel measurement techniques for investigation of noise in laser diodes as transmitters in Broadband Networks [completed by M Cox in 2008, PhD awarded in 2009]
The intensity noise of laser diodes is an increasingly important parameter for broadband analogue and high data rate telecommunication systems. Experimental techniques have been developed for measuring the Relative Intensity Noise (RIN) as a function of frequency (up to 20GHz) with high sensitivities (<-171dBm/Hz). In addition a new optical technique has been developed based on a low noise (cold) optical source, which provides an adjustable shot noise level. The calibration system developed at the company consists primarily of a New Focus ultra-fast photodetector, a high gain low noise RF amplifier and a Rohde and Schwarz low noise spectrum analyser (1Hz resolution bandwidth capability). These equipment together provides an enhance system sensitivity of <-171dBm/Hz. This has been confirmed by various techniques which includes broadband and narrowband 3dB assessments using direct and external modulation. Broadband noise errors in the spectrum analyser i.e. output envelope skewing, scaling error etc. have been directly observed. In the optical path isolation (>60dB) is inserted and counter angled fibre connectors are incorporated wherever thus minimizing optical back reflections, which can seriously degrade laser diode RIN performance. (see 68e, 60e, 59e, 56e, 54e, 43g, 42g,18g, 32h, 28h)

13a. Investigation and development of a novel high-speed sensory system for colour recognition of frequency-tuned materials [an industrial PhD by Tony McGrath].
This is a continuation of an MSc project. Aims of the PhD programme are:
(i) To develop a unique method for determining the presence of fluorescence material at selected wavelengths, and to derive the mathematical properties of material for high-speed operation. (ii) To apply Digital Signal Processing techniques for development of a communication interface with high-speed handling equipment used in industry to produce a prototype multi-functional sensor for integration into varied end-user operational equipment, resulting in the generation of a novel optical technique. Progress to date include: Material investigations (colour emissions, optical properties, energy states), Procurement of radiation sources for excitation of pigments/colour Research of optical coupling of pair (excitation source and material), Development of a high-speed interface for communications, Optical receiver investigation and development [see see 55e, 53e, 51e, 35g]

12a Inverse autocorrelation and inverse partial autocorrelation techniques for Power Spectral Estimation (last phase of the PhD project by Saeed Taghizadeh successfully completed in 2002)
Power Spectral Estimation is a methodology which has been found useful in many areas of physical applications where harmonic phenomena are to be detected and analysed, such as geosciences, sonar, antenna, speech analysis and synthesis, radio astronomy, oil exploration, seismology, biomedical applications (ECG, EEG), image processing, etc. The main objective of the project was to investigate the problem of estimating the Power Spectral Density function of stationary signals over short interval of time and to come up with a reasonable solution. . Various short comings in the areas of parametric modelling for the purpose of power spectral estimation were identified. It was found that very little use appears to have been made of ‘inverse autocorrelation' and ‘inverse partial autocorrelation' functions and to the best of our knowledge, none have appeared with regards to Engineering applications of these powerful functions. Detailed simulation showed that their estimation can be used as an important method to assist in identifying an optimum structure and exact order of a model for a given process. The research also revealed that ‘inverse autocorrelation' and ‘inverse partial autocorrelation' functions provide a relatively efficient method of estimation for the parameters of a model.

11a. Application of Amorphous semiconductors in Optical Process Tomography (by Robert Jenner completed in 2000]
