Abstract:

This thesis develops an electronic system for the control of motion of different types of active springs, thus improving the performance of mass-spring systems. A mathematical analysis is carried out for various types of active springs. Also, this thesis discusses future design for improving the performance of these electronic circuits to achieve even better performance of mass-spring systems. Keywords include Ground motion isolation, Josephson junction, Mass-spring system, SQUID amplifier, and Wide-band accelerometer.
