MAP Detection with Soft Information in an Estimate and Forward Relay Network
One proven solution for improving the reliability of a wireless channel is to use relays. We analyze the three-node relay network, focusing on the estimate-and-forward (EF) relay protocol, where the relay node estimates ...
Plasmonic Manipulation of Light for Sensing and Photovoltaic Applications
Plasmonics is a successful new field of science and technology that exploits the exclusive optical properties of metallic nanostructures to manipulate and concentrate light at nano-meter length scales. When light hits the ...
Size-Controlled Synthesis of Monodispersed Gold Nanoparticles via Carbon Monoxide Reduction
In this thesis an in depth analysis of nanoparticle synthesis utilizing carbon monoxide as a reducing agent is presented. Synthesized nanoparticle mono and polydispersity was examined via particle distribution profiles, ...
