Technically Enabled Explaining of Speaker Traits

The speech signal is a rich source of informa­tion that conveys linguistic but also what is termed para- or extralinguistic content, revea­ling a speaker’s identity, gender, emotional or cognitive state, age, and health. These traits have been the subject of many investigations in phonetics, but due to the high complexity of the underlying ...

SPP 2111 - Ultra-Wideband Photonically Assisted Analog-to-Digital Converters (PACE) - Phase 2

Silicon-based analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), which operate at sampling rates in the double-digit GSa/s range, are state of the art today. Although these converters now operate at unprecedented sampling rates, the effective number of bits (ENOB) and analog bandwidth are improving only slowly. A major obstacle to further improvements in ...

RadiOptics - EXIST Business Start-up Grant: RadiOptics

The goal of the RadiOptics project is to commercialize the next generation of microwave signal generators using a mode-locked laser (MLL). MLLs can generate a low-noise optical reference clock which have better precision in time unit measurement by orders of magnitude. The optical pulses of MLLs, however, cannot simply be used in a conventional ...
