  • Superregenerative reception of narrowband FSK modulations 

    Palà Schönwälder, Pere; Bonet Dalmau, Jordi; López Riera, Alexis; Moncunill Geniz, Francesc Xavier; Águila López, Francisco del; Giralt Mas, Ma. Rosa (2015-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper we investigate the possibilities of narrowband FSK detection using a superregenerative (SR) receiver. Previous SR FM demodulation techniques rely on detecting the amplitude variations caused by the different ...
  • Forward backward asymmetries of lepton pairs in events with a large transverse momentum jet at hadron colliders 

    Águila López, Francisco del; Ametller Congost, Lluís; Talavera Sánchez, Pedro (2002-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    We discuss forward-backward charge asymmetries for lepton-pair production in association with a large-transverse-momentum jet at hadron colliders. The lepton charge asymmetry relative to the jet direction AjFB gives a new ...
  • A low in-band radiation superregenerative oscillator 

    Palà Schönwälder, Pere; Bonet Dalmau, Jordi; Moncunill Geniz, Francesc Xavier; Águila López, Francisco del; Giralt Mas, Ma. Rosa (2013-05-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    This brief describes a superregenerative (SR) voltage-controlled oscillator as a building block for SR receivers where most of the oscillator spectrum components are outside the reception frequency band. This allows ...
  • Unlocking higher harmonics in atomic force microscopy with gentle interactions 

    Santos Hernández, Sergio; Barcons Xixons, Víctor; Font Teixidó, Josep; Verdaguer Prats, Albert (2014-03-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    In dynamic atomic force microscopy, nanoscale properties are encoded in the higher harmonics. Nevertheless, when gentle interactions and minimal invasiveness are required, these harmonics are typically undetectable. Here, ...
  • A superregenerative QPSK receiver 

    Palà Schönwälder, Pere; Bonet Dalmau, Jordi; Moncunill Geniz, Francesc Xavier; Águila López, Francisco del; Giralt Mas, Ma. Rosa (2014-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper we present a description and experimental verification of a superregenerative receiver (SR) for QPSK signals. Exploiting the fact that a conventional SR generates pulses which preserve the input phase ...
  • Stability, resolution, and ultra-low wear amplitude modulation atomic force microscopy of DNA: small amplitude small set-point imaging 

    Santos Hernández, Sergio; Barcons Xixons, Víctor; Christenson, Hugo K.; Billingsley, Daniel J.; Bonass, William A.; Font Teixidó, Josep; Thomson, Neil H. (2013)
    Article
    Open Access
    A way to operate fundamental mode amplitude modulation atomic force microscopy is introduced which optimizes stability and resolution for a given tip size and shows negligible tip wear over extended time periods ( 24 ...
  • A high-resolution UWB IR superregenerative receiver front end with an SRD quench shaper 

    Moncunill Geniz, Francesc Xavier; Bonet Dalmau, Jordi; Palà Schönwälder, Pere; Águila López, Francisco del; Giralt Mas, Ma. Rosa (2012-02-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We present a simple receiver front end that makes use of the baseband superregeneration principle to detect ultrawideband (UWB) impulse radio signals. The UWB antenna is directly connected to the core circuit consisting ...
