This paper presents the time reversal adaptive interferer can-celler (TRAIC), a novel algorithm that uses time reversal techniques to cancel the presence of interferers. TRAIC is developed for broadband signals and a single emitting antenna. Experimental tests in the electromagnetic domain show the viability and the power of TRAIC.
FePt– MgO two phase thin films have been obtained by an alternating sputtering method at elevated temperatures. It is found that the L1 0 FePt grains grow in a columnar manner through the thickness of the film and possess a ͑001͒ perpendicular texture promoted by the ͑200͒-textured crystalline MgO underlayer. The amorphous MgO in the two phase mixture forms(More)
Introduction A cluttered environment with highly scattering objects significantly enhances the difficulty for detecting targets using electromagnetic wave. In this paper, we present a novel time reversal method that nullifies the scattering objects to allow automatic focusing of the propagated electromagnetic wave on a target that is to be detected. Time(More)
The order parameter of FePt thin films plays an essential role in determining such diverse materials properties as magneto-crystalline anisotropy, magnetic coercivity and magnetic recording density. Typically, the order parameter for a bulk material is obtained by measuring the X-ray integrated intensity ratio of a super lattice peak to a fundamental peak(More)
—Grain-to-grain anisotropy field variation has become one of the main causes of medium noise, especially in perpendicular thin film media. In this paper, we present an electron microscopy investigation and theoretical analysis on the grain-to-grain anisotropy field variation in various types of thin film recording media. In alloyed film media, the intrinsic(More)
To make a uniform AlO x barrier layer in tunnel junctions, a thin layer of Al is often sputtered first and then oxidized. In this study, we sputtered a thick layer of Al onto Fe 3 O 4 and then employed high resolution transmission electron microscopy and x-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy to investigate the interfacial microstructures. Two new layers have(More)
