TiCxOy films with various O/Ti ratios have been deposited by DC magnetron sputtering, using C pieces incrusted in a Ti target erosion area. Composition analysis revealed the existence of three different growth regimes: (i) zone I, corresponding to films with metallic-like appearance, and atomic ratios O/Ti below one; (ii) zone II, with films revealing(More)
SC-FDE (Single-Carrier with Frequency-Domain Equalization) together with soft packet combining ARQ techniques (Automatic Repeat reQuest) was shown to be effective for broadband wireless systems with deep fading effects such as those inherent to shadowing. However, they are not suitable to cope with strong interference effects, especially when the channel(More)

Raman spectroscopy has been used as a local probe to characterize the structural evolution of magnetron-sputtered decorative zirconium oxynitride ZrOxNy films which result from an increase of reactive gas flow in the deposition The lines shapes, the frequency position and widths of the Raman bands show a systematic change as a function of the reactive gas(More)
Single-layered zirconium oxynitride (ZrNxOy) thin films have been deposited on steel substrates, at a constant temperature of 300 8C, by radiofrequency (rf) reactive magnetron sputtering of a pure Zr target in an argon–oxygen–nitrogen atmosphere. The variation of the flow rate of the reactive gases enabled changes in the composition and structure of the(More)
In this paper we propose a turbo multi-packet receiver for packet separation in the presence of successive collisions that is suitable for SC-FDE schemes (Single-Carrier with Frequency-Domain Equalization). Our technique allows high throughputs, since the required number of transmissions is equal to the number of packets involved in the collision. Since we(More)
