  • Keeping the Analog Genie in the Bottle: A Case for Digital Robots 

    Walker, Ian D.; Cavallaro, Joseph R.; Leuschen, Martin L. (1999-05-01)
    In this paper, we consider the case for adopting a truly 'digital' type of robot, which would evolve between a discrete and finite set of states. We adopt the point of view that the advantages of traditional robotic evolution ...
  • L(P) DECONVOLUTION IN NON-GAUSSIAN NOISE 

    Pham, Trung Tat (1986)
  • L(p)-approximation by the iteratively reweighted least squares method and the design of digital FIR filters in one dimension 

    Barreto, Jose Antonio (1993)
    In this thesis a new and simple to program approach is proposed in order to obtain an $L\sb{p}$ approximation, 2 $<$ p $<$ $\infty$, based on the Iteratively Reweighted Least Squares (IRLS) method, for designing a linear ...

    Background: A label-free immunosensor from as-grown double wall carbon nanotubes (DW) bundles was developed for detecting Salmonella typhimurium. The immunosensor was fabricated by using the as-grown DW bundles as an ...
  • Laboratory Workstations in Electrical Engineering 

    Aneshansley, Daniel J.; Pottle, Christopher; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (1985-06-01)
    Computers, configured for data acquisition and control, have been used in undergraduate laboratories at Cornell University's School of Electrical Engineering since the early 1970s. The introduction of personal computers ...
  • Lamellar and liquid crystal ordering in solvent-annealed all-conjugated block copolymers 

    Lin, Yen-Hao; Yager, Kevin G.; Stewart, Bridget; Verduzco, Rafael (2014)
    All-conjugated block copolymers are an emerging class of polymeric materials promising for organic electronic applications, but further progress requires a better understanding of their microstructure including crystallinity ...
  • LANGUAGE PRE-PROCESSING AT A REMOTE TERMINAL 

    BOHLMANN, RODNEY JOHN (1974)
  • Large enhanced dielectric permittivity in polyaniline passivated core-shell nano magnetic iron oxide by plasma polymerization 

    Joy, Lija K.; Sooraj, V.; Sajeev, U.S.; Nair, Swapna S.; Narayanan, T.N.; Sethulakshmi, N.; Ajayan, P.M.; Anantharaman, M.R. (2014)
    Commercial samples of Magnetite with size ranging from 25–30nm were coated with polyaniline by using radio frequency plasma polymerization to achieve a core shell structure of magnetic nanoparticle (core)–Polyaniline ...
  • Laser spectroscopic trace chemical sensors for environmental sensor networks and portable medical devices 

    So, Stephen G. (2008)
    This thesis represents the development of the first laser spectroscopy based trace-gas sensors with sensor characteristics which simultaneously satisfy low cost, handheld footprint, low power, and long term autonomous ...
  • A Lateral Flow Assay for Quantitative Detection of Amplified HIV-1 RNA 

    Rohrman, Brittany A.; Leautaud, Veronica; Molyneux, Elizabeth; Richards-Kortum, Rebecca R. (2012-09-21)
    Although the accessibility of HIV treatment in developing nations has increased dramatically over the past decade, viral load testing to monitor the response of patients receiving therapy is often unavailable. Existing ...
  • Lattice Algorithms for Compression Color Space Estimation in JPEG Images 

    Neelamani, Ramesh; de Queiroz, Ricardo; Baraniuk, Richard G. (2001-08-01)
    JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is an international standard to compress and store digital color images [5]. Given a color image that was previously JPEG-compressed in some hidden color space, we aim to estimate ...
  • Layered Dynamic Fault Detection and Tolerance for Robots 

    Visinsky, Monica L.; Walker, Ian D.; Cavallaro, Joseph R. (1993-05-01)
    Fault tolerance is increasingly important for space and hazardous environment robotics. Robots need to quickly detect and tolerate internal failures in order to continue performing their tasks without the need for immediate ...
  • LDPC Code Design for Half-Duplex Decode-and-Forward Relaying 

    Chakrabarti, Arnab; de Baynast, Alexandre; Sabharwal, Ashutosh; Aazhang, Behnaam (2005-09-01)
    We propose LDPC code designs for the half-duplex relay channel. Our designs mimic the information theoretic random coding scheme for decode-and-forward relaying. An important advantage of our scheme is that it is built ...
  • LDPC Code Design for OFDM Channel: Graph Connectivity and Information Bits Positioning 

    de Baynast, Alexandre; Sabharwal, Ashutosh; Aazhang, Behnaam (2005-07-01)
    We present an optimized channel coding scheme for OFDM transmission. In the future wireless standards such IEEE 802.11n, frame error rates (FER) as low as 0.0001 are targeting. Irregular LDPC codes have excellent performance ...
