Using Chaos to Generate White Noise

Published

Author(s)

Richard L. Kautz

Abstract

Numerical simulations reveal that a phase-locked loop can be operated in a chaotic regime to generate a high level of noise which is approximately white over a broad frequency range. Heuristic arguments indicate that the low-frequency power spectrum may be accurately uniform.
