The present report introduces a new construction of sequences having both a low peak factor (crest factor) and a flat power spectrum. Since the proposed sequence has a flat power spectrum, its auto-correlation is zero except for the zero shift. The proposed construction uses a systematic scheme and no search method. The length of the proposed sequence is (2n+1)(4n+1) for an arbitrary integer n. The sequence construction presented herein provides a means for generating various sequences at the lengths required for such applications as system measurement (which requires uncorrelated test signals), and audio signal processing for sound production (for enhancing spatial imagery in stereo signals synthesized from mono sources).
