Input signal shaping for target identification using genetic algorithms

This paper presents a novel approach for synthesizing an input signal to be used in natural resonance-based target identification. In this problem, both the shape and the duration of an input signal are initially unknown to be determined through an optimization procedure based on genetic algorithms.

Electromagnetic Target Classification using time frequency analysis and neural networks
Sayan, Gönül; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Wiley, 1999-04-01)
This paper demonstrates the feasibility and advantages of using a self-organizing map (SOM)-type neural network classifier for electromagnetic target recognition. The classifier is supported by a novel feature extraction unit in which the Wigner distribution (WD), a time-frequency representation, is utilized for the extraction of natural-resonance-related energy feature vectors from scattered fields. The proposed target classification technique is tested for a set of canonical targets, displaying an excelle...
Extension of forward-backward method with DFT-based acceleration algorithm for the efficient analysis of large periodic arrays with arbitrary boundaries
Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Chou, HT (Wiley, 2005-11-05)
An extension of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT)-based forward-backward algorithm is developed using the virtual-element approach to provide a fast and accurate analysis of electromagnetic radiation/scattering front electrically large, planar, periodic, finite (phased) arrays with arbitrary boundaries. Both the computational complexity and storage requirements of this approach are O(N-tot) (N-tot is the total number of unknowns). The numerical results for both printed and freestanding dipole array's wit...
Advanced Design of Schottky Photodiodes in Bulk CMOS for High Speed Optical Receivers
Orsel, Ogulcan Emre; Erdil, Mertcan; Kocaman, Serdar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-02-01)
This paper provides theoretical insight on how circular Schottky photodiodes in bulk CMOS can be optimized for certain integrated receiver applications. An optimal photodiode size is analytically demonstrated and the effects of a metal plate reflector are simulated using a transfer-matrix method, both for frontside and backside illumination. Finally, a distributed circuit model is presented, which deviates from the classical lumped model for large photodiodes or sheet resistances. The presented methodologie...
Forward-backward domain decomposition method for finite element solution of electromagnetic boundary value problems
Ozgun, Ozlem; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Wiley, 2007-10-01)
We introduce the forward-backward domain decomposition method (FB-DDM), which is basically an improved version of the classical alternating Schwarz method with overlapping subdomains,for electromagnetic, boundary value problems. The proposed method is non-iterative in some cases involving smooth geometries, or it usually converges in a few iterations in other cases involving challenging geometries, via the utilization of the locally-conformal PML method. We report some numerical results for two- dimensional...
Efficient finite element solution of low-frequency scattering problems via anisotropic metamaterial layers
Ozgun, Ozlern; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (Wiley, 2008-03-01)
We introduce a new technique which remedies the drawbacks in the Finite Element solution of low-frequency electromagnetic scattering problems, through the usage of an anisotropic metamaterial layer which is designed by employing the coordinate transformation approach. The usual finite element method should utilize a "challenging" mesh generation scheme to accurately simulate the "small" objects in scattering problems; on the contrary, the proposed technique provides a considerable reduction in the number of...
