In this work sub-terahertz imaging using Compressive Sensing (CS) techniques for targets placed behind a visibly opaque barrier is demonstrated both experimentally and theoretically. Using a multiplied Schottky diode based millimeter wave source working at 118 GHz, metal cutout targets were illuminated in both reflection and transmission configurations with and without barriers which were made out of drywall. In both modes the image is spatially discretized using laser machined, 10 x 10 pixel metal apertures to demonstrate the technique of compressive sensing. The images were collected by modulating the source and measuring the transmitted flux through the apertures using a Go lay cell. Experimental results were compared to simulations of the expected transmission through the metal apertures. Image quality decreases as expected when going from the non-obscured transmission case to the obscured transmission case and finally to the obscured reflection case. However, in all instances the image appears below the Nyquist rate which demonstrates that this technique is a viable option for Through the Wall Reflection Imaging (TWRI) applications.

Due to lack of widespread array imaging techniques in the THz range, point detector applications coupled with spatial modulation schemes are being investigated using compressive sensing (CS) techniques. CS algorithms coupled with innovative spatial modulation schemes which allow the control of pixels on the image plane from which the light is focused onto single pixel THz detector has been shown to rapidly generate images of objects. Using a CS algorithm, the image of an object can be reconstructed rapidly....
Compressed Sensing Based Hyperspectral Unmixing
Albayrak, R. Tufan; GÜRBÜZ, Ali Cafer; Gunyel, Bertan (2014-04-25)
In hyperspectral images the measured spectra for each pixel can be modeled as convex combination of small number of endmember spectra. Since the measured structure contains only a few of possible responses out of possibly many materials sparsity based convex optimization techniques or compressive sensing can be used for hyperspectral unmixing. In this work varying sparsity based techniques are tested for hyperspectral unmixing problem. Performance analysis of these techniques on sparsity level and measureme...
Compressive spectral imaging using diffractive lenses and multi-spectral sensors with learned reconstruction and joint optimization
Gündoğan, Utku; Öktem, Sevinç Figen; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2022-2)
Compressive spectral imaging aims to reconstruct the entire three-dimensional spectral cube from a few measurements, ideally with a snapshot capability. Recently various spectral imaging modalities have been developed by exploiting diffractive lenses. Another line of development in this area is enabled by spectral filter arrays which resulted in multi-spectral sensors. In this thesis, we first review an existing compressive spectral imaging modality with diffractive lenses and analyze its performance using ...
Theory and applications of surface plasmon resonance sensors
Özdemircan, Furkan; Sayan, Gönül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-2-12)
In this thesis, the electromagnetic theory of the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) phenomenon and its applications in optical sensing are investigated. An SPR sensor's operation is based on the excitation of surface plasmon waves (SPWs) at an interface between two different media, a metal layer, and a dielectric layer, with real parts of dielectric constants having opposite signs. The presence of the SPR shows itself with a sharp minimum in the reflection curve of the sensor that is operated by either the an...
Interstory drift based scaling of earthquake ground motions
Eren, Numan; Sucuoğlu, Haluk; Pinho, Rui (2021-08-01)
A novel amplitude scaling procedure is proposed in this study where the ground motion scaling factors are defined as the ratio of interstory drift distributions under target spectrum versus under the associated ground motion spectrum. The advantage of employing interstory drift ratio in ground motion scaling, compared to employing spectral intensity directly, is that it provides a strong theoretical link between the target spectrum intensity and the fundamental dynamic characteristics of the structure. Henc...
