© 2015 IEEE.In this paper, we analyze and optimize non- binary low-density parity-check (NB-LDPC) codes for magnetic recording applications. While the topic of the error floor performance of binary LDPC codes over additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels has recently received considerable attention, very little is known about the error floor performance of NB-LDPC codes over other types of channels, despite the early results demonstrating superior characteristics of NB-LDPC codes relative to their binary counterparts. We first show that, due to outer looping between detector and decoder in the receiver, the error profile of NB-LDPC codes over partial-response (PR) channels is qualitatively different from the error profile over AWGN channels - this observation motivates us to introduce new combinatorial definitions aimed at capturing decoding errors that dominate PR channel error floor region. We call these errors (or objects) balanced absorbing sets (BASs), which are viewed as a special subclass of previously introduced absorbing sets (ASs). Additionally, we prove that due to the more restrictive definition of BASs (relative to the more general class of ASs), an additional degree of freedom can be exploited in code design for PR channels. We then demonstrate that the proposed code optimization aimed at removing dominant BASs offers improvements in the frame error rate (FER) in the error floor region by up to 2.5 orders of magnitude over the uninformed designs. Our code optimization technique carefully yet provably removes BASs from the code while preserving its overall structure (node degree, quasi-cyclic property, regularity, etc.). The resulting codes outperform existing binary and NB-LDPC solutions for PR channels by about 2.5 and 1.5 orders of magnitude, respectively.

Design and Analysis of Nanoantenna Arrays for Imaging and Sensing Applications at Optical Frequencies
Isiklar, Goktug; Cetin, Isa Can; Algun, Mustafa; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2019-01-01)
We present computational analysis of nanoantenna arrays for imaging and sensing applications at optical frequencies. Arrays of metallic nanoantennas are considered in an accurate simulation environment based on surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm developed for plasmonic structures. Near-zone responses of the designed arrays to nearby nanoparticles are investigated in detail to demonstrate the feasibility of detection. We show that both metallic and dielectric nanoparticles...
Sensor Fusion of a Camera and 2D LIDAR for Lane Detection
Schmidt, Klaus Verner (null; 2019-04-26)
This paper presents a novel lane detection algorithm based on fusion of camera and 2D LIDAR data. On the one hand, objects on the road are detected via 2D LIDAR. On the other hand, binary bird’s eye view (BEV) images are acquired from the camera data and the locations of objects detected by LIDAR are estimated on the BEV image. In order to remove the noise generated by objects on the BEV, a modified BEV image is obtained, where pixels occluded by the detected objects are turned into background pixels. Then,...
Optimal Cavities to Enhance Free-space Matching in Solar Cells
Karaosmanoglu, B.; Topcuoglu, U.; Guler, S.; Tuygar, E.; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2018-08-04)
In this paper, we present design and numerical simulations of nano-cavities for free space matching in solar cells at optical frequencies. The cavity designs are inspired by the wellknown antenna geometries that are commonly used at radio and microwave frequencies. Using such designs that have not been explored before in the context of solar cells, the electromagnetic mismatch between solar-cell surfaces and vacuum is significantly reduced, in comparison to planar interfaces and those with the conventional ...
Time-domain simulation of directive sources in 3-D digital waveguide mesh-based acoustical models
Hacıhabiboğlu, Hüseyin; Günel Kılıç, Banu (2008-07-01)
Digital waveguide mesh (DWM) models offer a simple, accurate, time-domain, numerical solution of the wave equation. A specific case where such accurate and computationally simple solutions are needed is the acoustical modeling of open or closed volumes. It is possible to model 3-D propagation of waves in enclosures such as rooms using DWM models. Generally, idealized omnidirectional sources are used for obtaining the impulse response in the DWM. However, real-life sound sources are never completely isotropi...
