Strategic Policies and Demonstration Program of Electric Vehicle in China
Recent Chinese economic and energy policies recognize the transportation sector as a key element in the nation?s effort to meet its energy and air quality goals. The development of alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) has been ...
Examination of Field Electron Emission from Knife-Edge Structures
This thesis reports the experimental and modeling research carried out on eld and thermal emission from knife-edge structures. Field emission arises from electron emission from a surface under the in uence of intense ...
REALIZATION OF A MULTILEVEL, BIDIRECTIONAL BUCK-DERIVED CONVERTER
This thesis centers on the realization of a multilevel, bidirectional buck-derived DC-DC converter whose typology is capable of extremely large transformation ratios. The emphasis of this work is on the mode of operation ...
Galois Field Hardware Architectures for Network Coding
This paper presents and analyzes novel hardware designs for high-speed network coding. Our designs provide efficient methods to perform Galois field (GF) dot products and matrix inversions, which are important operations ...
Optical emission study of ion composition in an inductively coupled oxygen plasma
The success of ion implantation to precisely modify substrate properties is dependent on controlling the incident ion energies to achieve the desired depth of the implanted ions. Oxygen plasmas generally contain both O+ ...
SEIZURE DETECTION AND ANALYSIS USING PHASE-SLOPE INDEX
Detection and analysis of epileptic seizures is of clinical and research interest. We propose a novel seizure detection and analysis scheme based on the phase-slope index (PSI) of directed influence applied to ...
Temperature and Heat Flux Measurements in Ultrasonic Welding using Thin Film Micro Sensors
This project is to develop instrumentation and measurement of temperature and heat flux with unprecedented high spatial and temporal resolution by placing micro thermocouple and heat flux sensor arrays at the very vicinity ...
An Analysis of FPGA-based Architectures and Algorithm Implementations for the Compact Muon Solenoid Experiment Regional Calorimeter Trigger Phase-I Luminosity Upgrade
The Large Hadron Collider's (LHC) Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) is a high-energy physics experiment designed to observe and analyze particle collisions at a rate of one billion collisions per second. The CMS experiment relies ...
Differential Vaporizer Research
Automated Feature Analysis in Biological Images
This thesis is comprised of three projects that I worked on during the period of my Master of Science degree. All three projects use computer vision and image processing techniques to improve microscopy image analysis ...
