  • Inductive properties of conducting cylinder with rotational electric field’s azimuth strength

    The analytical method for calculation of induction and inductive properties of conducting cylinder with azimuth density of rotational current has been proposed. The method permits: to calculate radial distributions of azimuth component for strength vector of rotational electric field, densities of whirling currents, specific heat rating, being emitted at the local area of conductor; to determine the dependence of average electro moving force (EMF) in the ring, inductive current and integral ohmic resistor from equivalent cavity’s radius of cylinder; on the base of energy considerations to calculate the inductance, being introduced by conducting cylinder. This calculation is executed for investigated electromagnetic fields, where the finite phase shift between the current and the flux exists. 
    Estimations, executed for real conductors and semiconductors, point out to that the great values of inductance can be achieved at the low frequencies for materials with a small specific resistance. The small values of inductance can be achieved at the very high frequency (VHF) and extremely high frequency (EHF) for materials with a large specific resistance.

    Measurement results of basic characteristics of electronic module based on two specialized analog integrated circuits depending on different square area silicon detectors using source of 239Pu alpha particles is given. Processing of current pulses typically consists to convert them into a voltage by charge sensitive amplifiers and reduce noise by bandpass filters. Earlier for work with avalanche photodiode we have developed, constructed and tested two electronic modules "CRP-MDL-1" and "CRP-MDL-2". During the measurements was investigated spectrometric channel response on exposure to ionizing radiation from a source of alpha particles 239Pu and test input signals, thus we determined basic technical characteristics including energy resolution and noise characteristics. As a result, research found, that the output signal has the following timings: rise time - 1 us (levels of 0.1-0.9), peak time - 1.4 us, fall time - 1.8 us pulse width - 3.5 us. The conversion factor of module working with silicon detector (area of ​​1000 mm2 and a capacity 500 pF) consists about 10.6 mV / fC, or 0.47 V / MeV. Integral nonlinearity of spectrometer path is not worse 0.4% in the range from about 0.1 to 3.2 V. The energy resolution was 89.1 keV line of 5157 keV. The experimental studies revealed that using an external low-noise transistors developed module can be used in the construction of standard radiometric paths.

  • Q optimization of mm-wave LC circuits

    Сollector mm-wave load circuit of differential stages, as well as the optimization of Q-factor are considered. Optimization of the form of microstrip line in order to increase quality factor is shown. Differential line shorted at one end, at the resonant frequency in the operating mode of the standing wave. At the shorted end of the line voltage is at minimum level, while the current at the maximum, so losses are mainly due to the series resistance of the microstrip line. On the other side of the line, the current is minimized, and the voltage - maximum, so the parasitic losses associated with shunt conductance between the differential lines. This effect use for reducing line losses and increasing the Q-factor. To this end, at the shorted end of the line is necessary to increase the line width and the gap between them, and at the other end to reduce the width and gap.

  • Micropower selective amplifier in basis in radiation-hard process technology ABMK_1_3

    Classical implementation of active selective amplifiers (SA) are usually associated with design sophisticated active elements (operational amplifiers) that consume relatively large power from their universality. This paper present the active SA based on an analog array chip ABMK_1_3, that have high level of radiation resistance to the flow of neutrons and accumulated dose of radiation. This SA implemented on the basis of a voltage-to-current converter with a minimum number of transistors and low consumption static current. Efficient use of current amplifier can be explained by use frequency dependent symmetric chains in a feedback loop. This property provides the independence of the pole frequency f0 = fp on the gain of the active element, as well as maximizing the quality factor.
