Terahertz photonic crystals
This thesis describes the study of two-dimensional photonic crystals slabs with terahertz time domain spectroscopy. In our study we first demonstrate the realization of planar photonic components to manipulate terahertz ...
The propagation of single-cycle terahertz pulses in random media
We describe what are to our knowledge the first measurements of the propagation of coherent, single-cycle pulses of terahertz radiation in a scattering medium. We measure the propagation constants for pulses in a dense ...
OpenMP on networks of workstations
The OpenMP Application Programming Interface (API) is an emerging standard for parallel programming on shared memory architectures. Networks of workstations (NOWs) are attractive parallel programming platforms because of ...
Ultrafast magneto-optical spectroscopy of (III,manganese)V ferromagnetic semiconductors
This thesis describes magneto-optical processes in ferromagnetic (III,Mn)V semiconductors and their heterostructures induced by femtosecond laser pulses. Two-color ultrafast magneto-optical spectroscopy has been developed, ...
The Effect of Preprocessing to the Complexity of List Sphere Detector Algorithms
A list sphere detector (LSD) is an enhancement of a sphere detector (SD) that can be used to approximate the soft output MAP detector used in the detection of the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) signals. The LSD ...

Sparse Coding with Population Sketches
(BMC Neuroscience, 2009-07-13)
Neural population structures and consequences for neural coding
Researchers studying neural coding have speculated that populations of neurons would more effectively represent the stimulus if the neurons "cooperated:" by interacting through lateral connections, the neurons would process ...
Sharing Knowledge and Building Communities in Signal Processing
The textbook has traditionally been the fundamental tool of university teaching. The text both serves as the repository of facts and information and provides the recommended structure and sequence for teaching and learning ...
Wavelet-Based Denoising Using Hidden Markov Models
Hidden Markov models have been used in a wide variety of wavelet-based statistical signal processing applications. Typically, Gaussian mixture distributions are used to model the wavelet coefficients and the correlation ...
