We have developed an extended source optical coherence tomography (SEES-OCT) technique in an attempt to improve signal strength for ophthalmic imaging. A line illumination with a visual angle of 7.9 mrad is produced by introducing a dispersive element in the infinity space of the sample arm. The maximum permissible exposure (MPE) of such an extended source(More)
Diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) such as meningitis or encephalitis may represent events of public health interest due to emerging infections and/or NIH/CDC Category B priority pathogens. Apart from influencing treatment and management of the index case, some diagnoses such as meningococcal meningitis warrant an immediate public health response.(More)
This paper deals with joint source-relay-destination beamforming (BF) design for an amplify-and-forward (AF) relay network. Considering the channel state information (CSI) from the relay to the destination is imperfect, we first aim to maximize the worst case received SNR under per-antenna power constraints. The associated optimization problem is then(More)
—This paper deals with joint source and relay beam-forming (BF) design for an amplify-and-forward (AF) multi-antenna multirelay network. Considering that the channel state information (CSI) from relays to destination is imperfect, we aim to maximize the worst case received signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The associated optimization problem is then solved in(More)
In this paper, we propose an effective and robust decentralized tracking scheme based on the square root cubature information filter (SRCIF) to balance the energy consumption and tracking accuracy in wireless camera sensor networks (WCNs). More specifically, regarding the characteristics and constraints of camera nodes in WCNs, some special mechanisms are(More)
Plaque rupture is the critical cause of cardiovascular thrombosis, but the detailed mechanisms are not fully understood. Recent studies have found abundant cholesterol crystals in ruptured plaques, and it has been proposed that the rapid expansion of cholesterol crystals in a limited space during crystallization may contribute to plaque rupture. To evaluate(More)
