      This paper presents a novel 160 Gbps free space optics (FSO) communication system for 6G applications. Polarization division multiplexing (PDM) is integrated with an optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) technique to form a PDM-OCDMA hybrid. There are two polarization states: one is X-polarization generated from adjusting the azimuthal angle of a light source at 0° while the other is ...
    • Adaptive Backstepping Control for a Fully-Actuated Rigid-Body in a Dual-Quaternion Framework 

      Andersen, Tom Stian; Kristiansen, Raymond (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2020-03-12)
      We address the trajectory tracking problem for a fully actuated rigid-body with unknown mass and inertia parameters and unknown disturbance forces, using an adaptive backstepping controller based on dual-quaternions. We show that the proposed controller, in closed loop with a nonlinear model of the system, renders the equilibrium points uniformly asymptotically stable. The proposed controller ...

    • Aerodynamic forces on iced cylinder for dry ice accretion – A numerical study 

      Sokolov, Pavlo; Virk, Muhammad Shakeel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-09-28)
      Within this paper the ISO 12494 assumption of standard of slowly rotating reference collector under ice accretion has been tested. This concept, introduced by (Makkonen, 1984), suggests that the power line cables, which are the basis of the “reference collector” in the ISO framework, are slowly rotating under ice load, due to limited torsional stiffness. For this purpose, several Computational Fluid ...
