With the formidable growth of various booming wireless communication services that require ever-increasing data throughputs, the conventional microwave band below 10 GHz, which is currently used by almost all mobile communication systems, is going to reach its saturation point within just a few years. Therefore, the attention of radio system designers has(More)
—In this paper, we consider a wireless-powered cooperative communication network, which consists of a hybrid access-point (AP), a hybrid relay, and an information source. In contrast to the conventional cooperative networks, the source in the considered network is assumed to have no embedded energy supply. Thus, it first needs to harvest energy from the(More)
Oil-water separation has recently become a global challenging task because of the frequent occurrence of oil spill accidents due to the offshore oil production and transportation, and there is an increasing demand for the development of effective and inexpensive approaches for the cleaning-up of the oily pollution in water system. In this study, a(More)
—This paper is concerned with the channel estimation problem in Millimeter wave (mmWave) wireless systems with large antenna arrays. By exploiting the inherent sparse nature of the mmWave channel, we first propose a fast channel estimation (FCE) algorithm based on a novel overlapped beam pattern design. Compared to the existing non-overlapped beam pattern(More)
With the ongoing need for miniaturized systems in many biological and chemical applications, there is an increasing demand for the development of versatile methods for controllable transport and manipulation of small volumes of liquids. [ 1–9 ] Recently, liquid marbles — liquid droplets encapsulated by self-organized hydrophobic particles at the liquid/air(More)
—In this paper, we study the point-to-point E-band millimeter wave wireless channel with uniform linear antenna arrays (ULAs) deployed at both link ends and present an analytical approach to characterize the channel behavior. We first derive explicit expressions for some channel eigenvalues at certain discrete system settings. The asymptotic behavior and(More)
