To overcome the limitations of the existing algorithms for active impulsive noise control, an algorithm based on minimizing the squared logarithmic transformation of the error signal is proposed in this correspondence. The proposed algorithm is more robust for impulsive noise control and does not need the parameter selection and thresholds estimation(More)
Blind multichannel identification is generally sensitive to background noise. Although there have been some efforts in the literature devoted to improving the robustness of blind multichannel identification with respect to noise, most of those works assume that the noise is Gaussian distributed, which is often not valid in real room acoustic environments.(More)
To localize sound sources in room acoustic environments, time differences of arrival (TDOA) between two or more microphone signals must be determined. This problem is often referred to as time delay estimation (TDE). The multichannel cross-correlation-coefficient (MCCC) algorithm, which is an extension of the traditional cross-correlation method from two-(More)
This paper proposes a sparse linear prediction based algorithm to estimate time difference of arrival. This algorithm unifies the cross correlation method without prewhitening and that with prewhitening via an ℓ2/ℓ1 optimization process, which is solved by an augmented Lagrangian alternating direction method. It also forms a set of time delay estimators(More)
Noise and reverberation can significantly affect the performance of time delay estimation (TDE) in room acoustic environments. The multichannel cross-correlation coefficient (MCCC) algorithm, which extends the traditional cross-correlation method from two to multiple channels, can exploit the spatial information among multiple microphones to improve the(More)
Being an enabling technology for applications such as ultrasensitive biosensing and surface enhanced spectroscopy, enormous research interests have been focused on further boosting the local field enhancement at Fano resonance. Here, we demonstrate a plasmonic Fano resonance resulting from the interference between a narrow magnetic dipole mode and a broad(More)
