This paper studies different secrecy rate optimization problems for a multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) secrecy channel. In particular, we consider a scenario where a communication through a MIMO channel is overheard by a multiple-antenna eavesdropper. In this secrecy network, we first investigate two secrecy rate optimization problems: 1) power(More)
In recent few years, the antenna and sensor communities have witnessed a considerable integration of radio frequency identification (RFID) tag antennas and sensors because of the impetus provided by internet of things (IoT) and cyber-physical systems (CPS). Such types of sensor can find potential applications in structural health monitoring (SHM) because of(More)
Delamination is one of the most common defects in carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) components, such as those used in aircraft and wind turbine blades. To detect delaminations, different NDT methods such as ultrasonic (UT), eddy current (EC) scanning, flash thermography, and recent developed pulsed-eddy-current-(PEC-) simulated thermography are(More)
This paper proposes an unsupervised method for diagnosing and monitoring defects in inductive thermography imaging system. The proposed method is fully automated and does not require manual selection from the user of the specific thermal frame images for defect diagnosis. The core of the method is a hybrid of physics-based inductive thermal mechanism with(More)
This paper addresses the interpolation issue of current spectral estimation methods in microwave-based nondestructive testing and evaluation. We developed a spatialfrequency feature extraction algorithm for defect detection with an open-ended waveguide system using smooth Itakura-Saito nonnegative matrix factorization. In addition, the mathematical models(More)
