We present a new optical fiber sensor interrogator specifically designed for an embedded instrumentation system. The proposed system consists of a super luminescent diode as a broadband source, a high speed tunable micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) filter, photodetector, and an integrated microprocessor for data aggregation, processing, and(More)
Coherent imaging and communication through or within heavily scattering random media has been considered impossible due to the randomization of the information contained in the scattered electromagnetic field. We report a remarkable result based on speckle correlations over incident field position that demonstrates that the field incident on a heavily(More)
We demonstrate that a circular Bessel density function describes the electromagnetic field statistics in the Anderson localization regime using example numerical terahertz field data in strongly scattering media. This density function for localized fields provides a measure that allows identification and description in a manner akin to the Gaussian density(More)
We present a family of circular Bessel probability density functions that are capable of describing the intensity, amplitude, and field statistics of waves in any random medium, with only the assumption of circularity. The well-known zero-mean circular Gaussian statistics break down in the Anderson localization and the weakly scattering regimes, where the(More)
Fatigue crack growth (FCG) research conducted in the near threshold regime has identified a room temperature creep crack growth damage mechanism for a fine grain powder metallurgy (PM) aluminum alloy (8009). At very low ∆K, an abrupt acceleration in room temperature FCG rate occurs at high stress ratio (R = Kmin/Kmax). The near threshold accelerated FCG(More)
We present a coherent optical method for wavelength-resolution imaging of moving objects hidden within thick randomly scattering media. Spatial speckle intensity correlations as a function of object position are shown to provide access to the spatially dependent dielectric constant of the moving object. This speckle correlation imaging method yields(More)
