Electromagnetic Target Classification using time frequency analysis and neural networks

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 excellent performance in terms of both real-time classification speed and accuracy, even in the presence of noisy data.

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...
Quasi-static solutions of elliptical, cylindrical-coupled parallel coplanar waveguide, and coupled parallel coplanar waveguide with finite ground planes
Duyar, Mehmet; Akan, Volkan; Yazgan, Erdem; Bayrak, Mehmet (Wiley, 2007-07-01)
This article presents the quasi-static analyses of elliptical-coupled parallel coplanar waveguide (ECP CPW), cylindrical-coupled parallel coplanar waveguide (CCP CPW), and coupled parallel coplanar waveguide (CP CPW) with finite ground planes. Conformal-mappi ng techniques have been used through the analyses. The obtained results show good agreement with IE3D electromagnetic-circuit solver software's simulations for the planar case. In addition, the results have been compared with others available in the li...
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...
Sensor fusion, sensitivity analysis and calibration in shooter localization systems
Akman, Caglar; Sonmez, Tolga; Ozugur, Ozgur; Basil, Abdil Burak; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Elsevier BV, 2018-03-01)
This paper analyses the principles and the underlying mathematical model for acoustic based shooter detection systems. These systems use the muzzle blast and acoustic shock waves to compute the shooter's location. Our detection system works on a distributed sensor network where microphone arrays are used as sensors. Detection algorithms run concurrently at each node. After determining the wave directions, the information is passed to the central node. The central node fuses data coming from each sensor with...
Nonlinear optical properties of a Woods-Saxon quantum dot under an electric field
AYTEKİN, ÖZLEM; Turgut, Sadi; Unal, V. Ustoglu; Aksahin, E.; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
A theoretical study of the effect of the confining potential on the nonlinear optical properties of two dimensional quantum dots is performed. A three-parameter Woods-Saxon potential is used within the density matrix formalism. The control of confinement by three parameters and an applied electric field gives one quite an advantage in studying their effects on the nonlinear properties. The coefficients investigated include the optical rectification, second and third-harmonic generation and the change in the...
