Design of a Fast, Efficient and Controlled DNA Shearing System Based on Lateral Acoustic Waves
With the continuous research and advances in Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing technologies, the need for an efficient DNA shearing system has increased more than ever before. In this thesis, we propose a fast, efficient ...
Rethinking Image Compression for the Object Detection Task
Traditionally, image compression algorithms, such as JPEG, have been designed for human viewers' satisfaction. Increasingly however, more and more images are being viewed by computers, for performing computer vision tasks ...
Denoising-based Approximate Message Passing
A denoising algorithm seeks to remove perturbations or errors from a signal. The last three decades have seen extensive research devoted to this arena, and as a result, today's denoisers are highly optimized algorithms ...
Chinese Growth Prospects in the Short to Medium Term
The Chinese economy has grown at incredibly fast rates over the past three decades. This growth has been heavily biased in favor of investment-driven, capital-and-resource-intensive, and export-oriented industrialization. ...
High-speed Track and Hold Amplifiers in CMOS for Enabling Pulse-based Direct Modulation, Secure Communication and Precision Localization
Last few decades have seen a puissant desire for fast communication links that has shaped the evolution of high-speed circuits and silicon- based technology. This desire accompanied with a large consumer market has fueled ...
MIMO Broadcast Channels with Full-duplex feedback
In this thesis, I utilize full-duplex radios to increase the downlink spectral efficiency of MIMO broadcast channels by proposing a sequential beamforming strategy. In current half-duplex multiuser MIMO systems, non-trivial ...
Molecular Plasmonics: Graphene Plasmons in the Picoscale Limit
Doped graphene supports surface plasmons in the mid- to far-infrared that are both electrically and spatially tunable. Graphene has been shown to enable greater spatial confinement of the plasmon and fewer losses than ...
The Future of Oil in Mexico
Robustness and Optimality in CSMA Wireless Networks
In today's widely diffused CSMA wireless networks, problems of coordination in the access to the channel by multiple transmitters can lead to unfair situations where some of the flows receive much of the network throughput ...
MU-MIMO WLANs in Diverse Bands and Environments
Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) is a precoding technique that allows for an Access Point (AP) to transmit data to multiple receivers in parallel resulting in an overall capacity increase. However, achieving these gains requires ...
