Free-Air Laser Light Communications
Because light is at such a high frequency in the electromagnetic spectrum, it`s an even better medium for communications than radio waves. Lasers are perfect instruments for communications links because they emit a powerful, slender beam that`s least affected by interference and is nearly impossible to intercept. This section explains the basics o
Advanced Projects in Laser Communication
The last section presented a number of basic free-air laser light communications projects. You learned how to modulate a He-Ne laser beam using a transformer, transistor, and even a piece of Mylar foil stretched in a needlepoint hoop. You also learned various ways to electronically modulate laser diodes and recover the transmitted audio signal. Th

Complete Ar/Kr Ion Laser Power Supply Schematics
The circuit is split into two sections: the isolated external loop which is connected to the remote interface connector on the front of the PSU and the non-isolated inner loop which is connected to the HT (AC line) supply. The two loops are linked by opto-couplers OK1 and OK2. Initially the outer loop is inactive and all regulation takes place wit

The nitrogen (N2) laser produces intense extremely short (a few ns) intense (100 kW typical) pulses of light in the near UV portion of the E/M spectrum (337. 1 nm). Despite this impressive capability, the N2 laser is among the easiest to construct for the following reasons: Mirrors are NOT required. The gain of the lasing medium (N2) is so high tha

For those people who do not currently have the AC-3 RF output...
Laser Diode Circuit
Unlike LED light, a laser`s light output is more concentrated, meaning it has a smaller and more narrow viewing angle. This means it must be directed at its source more directly in order to be picked up. Laser light is also monochromatic, meaning laser light isn`t composed of several lights combined together, but one light of the same wavelength a
This circuit is a laser alarm system like the one we see in various movies. It uses a laser pointer beam to secure your valuables and property. Essentially, when the beam gets interrupted by a person, animal or object, the resistance of a photodiode will increase and an alarm will be activated. The laser and the receiver can be fitted in same box,

The zener provides a constant voltage of 20 V to unijunction transistor Ql, except at the end of each half-cycle of the input when the line voltage drops to zero. Initially, the voltage across capacitor Cl is zero and capacitor C2 cannot charge to trigger Ql. Cl will begin to charge, but because the voltage is low, C2 will be charged to a voltage

A laser pulser using the same laser diode LI does. I made the pulser so it could be adjusted from 50 to 20, 000ppm. I tested that on my LIs and rx65, they only alert to pulses from about 100 to 200ppm. I also wonder if my pulsure would work as a jammer if I turned the frequency all the way up, sort of like an old brute force jammer that worked...

The circuit described here uses ultrasonic oscillations and operates based on the propagation velocity of these oscillations in the air. Thus, we can easily determine the distance of two points if the time within which the wave travels this distance is measured. There are three main categories of distance measurement methods in use: a) By...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...
