Guided Resonance in Photonic Crystals
The objective of this thesis research is to analyze the guided resonances in photonic crystal slabs. It introduces the different kinds of photonic crystals and focuses on photonic crystal slabs consisting of a square lattice ...
The Application of High-Frequency Microwaves in Tissue Ablation for Cancer Treatment
The study demonstrates the feasibility of using high-frequency microwaves for tissue ablation by comparing the performance of a 10 GHz microwave ablation system with that of a 1.9 GHz system. Two sets of floating sleeve ...
Thermal Feasibility Analysis of Periodic Real-Time Tasks with Jitter
It is well-known that spatial and temporal variations in power density within a processor core creates thermal hot spots where the temperatures can exceed 100 C. Such temperatures can degrade device reliability and adversely ...
A Parallel Algorithm for Multi-view Image Denoising
In this paper, we propose to improve the denoising performance by exploiting the redundancy provided by the multiple views. Here, we review the rich literature on image denoising methods. Zhang et. al. in  conjecture ...
Design and Analysis of a Quasi-Parallel Regulated Switched-Capacitor Converter
In this research, a method to regulate switched-capacitor converters (SCC) by utilizing a regulated magnetic converter in a quasi-parallel configuration is proposed, analyzed, and experimentally verified for a telecommunication ...
Performance Evaluation of a DySER FPGA Prototype
Specialization and accelerators are being proposed as an effective way to address the slowdown of Dennard scaling. DySER is one such accelerator, which dynamically synthesizes large compound functional units to match program ...
Sensitivity Calculation of Different Parameters for Power Plant Collaboration
This paper introduces a dynamic simulation method to simulate a WECC 4 bus power plant model and discusses various optimization approaches to better simulate the model by varying some parameter values.
Benchmark Creation for Multi-Personality and Content-Aware Circuit Partitioning Algorithms
This report documents efforts to assemble and modify a set of benchmark circuits for testing a new class of circuit partitioning algorithms designed for heterogeneous FPGAs. Often, computations can be implemented using ...
Intracranial Pressure Sensor
Develop and fabricate a permanently implanted passive pressure sensor to measure intracranial pressure (ICP). At anytime, the hydrocephalic patient, care taker, or physician can hold an external display device over the ...
