A method of formulating ternary-valued (-1,0,1) correlation filters based on the ratio of spectral energies of target and nontarget patterns is proposed, and performance of such filters is investigated by computer simulations of correlation. The results confirm the intuitive expectation that such filters can enhance signalto- clutter and discrimination(More)
The basic design elements of binary phase-only filters (BPOFs) include the angle of a thresholding line in the complex plane and the offset from a center reference point of the pattern transformed in constructing the filter. These factors are analyzed, and a general formalism for the threshold-line angle variation is presented and related to the special(More)
Evanescent coupling between a side-polished single-mode optical fiber and a single-mode, pH-sensitive Langmuir-Blodgett overlay is used to demonstrate an intrinsic fiber-optic pH sensor. The sensor shows a wavelength sensitivity of 18.8 +/- 0.8 nm/pH and a transmission sensitivity of 9.7 +/- 0.8 dB/pH when operating at 750 nm.
We classify all the cocyclic Butson Hadamard matrices BH(n, p) of order n over the pth roots of unity for an odd prime p and np ≤ 100. That is, we compile a list of matrices such that any cocyclic BH(n, p) for these n, p is equivalent to exactly one element in the list. Our approach encompasses non-existence results and computational machinery for Butson(More)
