Warp Speed Ahead

Adventures in Photonics and The World's First Quantum FM Radio

Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.” – Captain Kirk, Starship Enterprise

I’ve got three words for you: Quantum FM Radio! In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, we take an in-depth look at some revolutionary quantum research coming out of University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering that will not only change the future of quantum mechanics as we know it, but also pave the way for unhackable communication channels, the teleportation of single electron states, and the realization of a quantum internet. Also this week, self-professed “crazy scientist” and photonics expert Gilles Lamant joins me to discuss the the evolution of photonics and why photonics is finding its way into machine learning and artificial intelligence today.

Utilizing the Benefits of Coupled Inductors

Sponsored by Analog Devices

In a multiphase design, coupled inductors offer many advantages compared to discrete inductors including current ripple cancellation, improved transient performance, higher inductor current saturation, smaller inductor size, output capacitance and improved overall efficiency performance. This application note highlights how the benefit of current ripple cancellation can be traded for either smaller size or higher efficiency, depending on design specifications.
