Depending on the ground sampling distance of a remote sensor, a pixel of a spectral data cube is represented as a combination of the reflected signals of the materials which constitutes the observed pixel. Hyperspectral unmixing algorithms model the pixel of a data cube to determine and extract the spectral signatures of its components, namely endmembers, with their corresponding abundance fractions. This study first reviews the interaction and mitigation mechanisms of heavy metals with carbon content in soil, specifically due to coal mining activities and thermal plants. Such mechanism is then investigated with hyperspectral unmixing techniques by producing total carbon maps for an abandoned coal mine site. The utilized data for the study area is obtained on August 2013 with multispectral Worldview-2 satellite sensor. The acquired image is orthorectified and atmospherically corrected for radiance to reflectance conversion prior to the analysis. The soil samples are mainly collected from the problematic regions in terms of soil pollution. The samples are analyzed with LECO TrueSpec CHN_S device to measure total carbon levels, which are employed as ground truth to assess the performance of unmixing algorithms. The resulting abundance maps for carbon content are found to have a high compatibility with each other and the ground truth data, which effectively point out the regions of high carbon content.

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...
Hyperspectral target detection - An experimental study
GUNYEL, BERTAN; Cinbiş, Ramazan Gökberk; Ture, Sedat; Gurbuz, Ali Cafer (2015-05-19)
In hyperspectral imaging, the measured spectra are affected by the materials and objects that reside within or in close vicinity of the pixel which is being imaged. The detection of a material or object of interest in an imaged region is a common problem in various application areas. In this work, an experimental study is performed for target detection in hyperspectral images, supported by a performance comparison.
Real-time scanning hall probe microscopy
Oral, Ahmet; HENİNİ, M (1996-08-26)
We describe a low-noise scanning Hall probe microscope having unprecedented magnetic field sensitivity (similar to 2.9x10(-8) T/root Hz at 77 K), high spatial resolution, (similar to 0.85 mu m),nd operating in real-time (similar to 1 frame/s) for studying flux profiles at surfaces. A submicron Hall probe manufactured in a GaAs/A1GaAs two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) is scanned over the sample to measure the surface magnetic fields using conventional scanning tunneling microscopy positioning techniques. F...
Coherent J/psi photoproduction in ultra-peripheral PbPb collisions at root s(NN)=2.76 TeV with the CMS experiment
Khachatryan, V.; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2017-09-01)
The cross section for coherent photoproduction accompanied by at least one neutron on one side of the interaction point and no neutron activity on the other side, , is measured with the CMS experiment in ultra-peripheral PbPb collisions at . The analysis is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 159, collected during the 2011 PbPb run. The mesons are reconstructed in the dimuon decay channel, while neutrons are detected using zero degree calorimeters. The measured cross section ...
Multi-spectral satellite image registration using scale-restricted surf
TEKE, Mustafa; Temizel, Alptekin (2010-08-26)
Satellites generally have arrays of sensors having different resolution and wavelength parameters. For some applications, images acquired from different viewpoints and positions are required to be aligned. This alignment process could be achieved by matching the image features followed by image registration. In this paper registration of multispectral satellite images using Speeded Up Robust Features (SURF) method is examined. The performance of SURF for registration of high resolution satellite images capt...
