      We perform polarization-resolved Raman spectroscopy on graphene in magnetic fields up to 45 T. This reveals a filling-factor-dependent, multicomponent anticrossing structure of the Raman G peak, resulting from magnetophonon ...
    • Measurements vs. Bits: Compressed Sensing meets Information Theory 

      Sarvotham, Shriram; Baron, Dror; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2006-09-01)
      Compressed sensing is a new framework for acquiring sparse signals based on the revelation that a small number of linear projections (measurements) of the signal contain enough information for its reconstruction. The ...
    • Measuring Competence in Metered Dose Inhaler Use Using Capmedic Electronic Inhaler MonitoringᅠTool 

      Biswas, Rajoshi; Patel, Gaurav; Mohsin, Ali; Hanania, Nicola A.; Sabharwal, Ashutosh (2016)
      It is estimated that up to 70-90% of asthma and COPD patients use their Metered Dose Inhalers (MDIs) incorrectly. However, clinicians often fail to detect patients’ incorrect MDI technique by observation alone. In this ...
    • Measuring Time-Frequency Information and Complexity using the Renyi Entropies 

      Baraniuk, Richard G.; Flandrin, Patrick; Michel, Olivier (1995-09-01)
      In search of a nonparametric indicator of deterministic signal complexity, we link the Renyi entropies to time-frequency representations. The resulting measures show promise in several situations where concepts like the ...
