Comparison of laserproduced plasma target materials for pumping the 109 nm xenon(2+) Auger laser
(1995)Short wavelength lasers have many potential applications in scientific and engineering fields. The goal of this research was to improve the output energy of the Xe$\sp{2+}$ 109 nm laser. We compared cadmium, copper, gold, ... 
COMPARISON OF TWO NOVEL LIST SPHERE DETECTOR ALGORITHMS FOR MIMOOFDM SYSTEMS
(20060901)In this paper, the complexity and performance of two novel list sphere detector (LSD) algorithms are studied and evaluated in multipleinput multipleoutput orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMOOFDM) system. ... 
Competing mechanisms and scaling laws for carbon nanotube scission by ultrasonication
(2012)Dispersion of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) into liquids typically requires ultrasonication to exfoliate individuals CNTs from bundles. Experiments show that CNT length drops with sonication time (or energy) as a power law t?m. ... 
Competitive Parallel Disk Prefetching and Buffer Management1
(2000)We provide a competitive analysis framework for online prefetching and buffer management algorithms in parallel IrO systems, using a readonce model of block references. This has widespread applicability to key IrObound ... 
Compiler Driven Architecture Design Space Exploration for DSP Workloads: A Study in Software Programmability Versus Hardware Acceleration
(20091101)Wireless communications and video kernels contain vast instruction and data level parallelism that can far outstrip programmable high performance DSPs. Hardware acceleration of these bottlenecks is commonly done at the ... 
Complex Wavelet Transforms with Allpass Filters
(20030820)Complex discrete wavelet transforms have significant advantages over real wavelet transforms for certain signal processing problems. Two approaches to the implementation of complex wavelet transforms have been proposed ... 
Complexed Multifunctional Metallic and Chalcogenide Nanostructures as Theranostic Agents

Complexity Analysis of MMSE Detector Architectures for MIMO OFDM Systems
(20051101)In this paper, a field programmable gate array (FPGA) implementation of a linear minimum mean square error (LMMSE) detector is considered for MIMOOFDM systems. Two square root free algorithms based on QR decomposition ... 
Componentbased adaptation for mobile computing
(2002)Componentbased adaptation is a novel approach for adapting applications to the limited availability of resources such as bandwidth and power in mobile environments. Componentbased adaptation works by calling on the ... 
Composition and Sources of Particulate Matter Measured near Houston, TX: AnthropogenicBiogenic Interactions
(2016)Particulate matter was measured in Conroe, Texas (~60 km north of downtown Houston, Texas) during the September 2013 DISCOVERAQ campaign to determine the sources of particulate matter in the region. The measurement site ... 
Compound Poisson Cascades
(20020501)Multiplicative processes and multifractals proved useful in various applications ranging from hydrodynamic turbulence to computer network traffic, to name but two. Placing multifractal analysis in the more general framework ... 
A Comprehensive Probabilistic Framework to Learn Air Data from Surface Pressure Measurements
(2015)Use of probabilistic techniques has been demonstrated to learn air data parameters from surface pressure measurements. Integration of numerical models with wind tunnel data and sequential experiment design of wind tunnel ... 
Compressed Sensing for Imaging Applications
(2008)Compressed sensing is a new sampling theory which allows reconstructing signals using subNyquist measurements. This can significantly reduce the computation required for both image and video whether during acquisition ...
