— We propose a new topology for realizing artificial microwave materials that exhibit a negative refractive index over a wide frequency band. These metamaterials consist of a three-dimensional transmission line mesh that is loaded with reactive series and shunt elements to create negative permittivity and permeability. The cubic-cell transmission line host… (More)
— Recent advances in computing technology has brought massively parallel computing power to desktop PCs. As multi-core processor technology becomes mature, a new front in parallel technology based on graphics processors has emerged. A massively parallel 2D-TLM algorithm for NVIDIA advanced graphics processors has been developed. The proposed parallel… (More)
The rise of e-health and telemedicine is changing the way medical data is gathered and used. Recently, electronic stethoscopes have been developed by many companies, yet general adoption of the devices is yet to be attained. This is due to the fact that electronic stethoscopes are still quite expensive. Hence, we have developed a low cost implementation to… (More)
A fundamental rule in Transmission Line Matrix (TLM) modeling is to ensure that the shortest wavelength in the model is always large compared to the discretization parameter. This rule is appropriate for electromagnetic analysis, but when the TLM model is used to solve inverse problems, such as computational imaging, source reconstruction, or structure… (More)
The success of telemedicine deepends on the availability of advanced medical equiipment that can streamline the tasks of medical ddata collection, processing and archiving.  Audio signnals acquired by stethoscopes are some of the basicc data used by physicians in diagnosis of diseases bbut there is no systematic approach to store the acq uired… (More)
An open-source multi-platform TLM software package for heterogeneous computing hardware with multiple central processing units and graphics processing units has been developed. This paper describes the software package and the embedded TLM engines. The modeling framework employed by the software can be used to accelerate TLM and FDTD field simulations. The… (More)
The resource requirements of modern-day scientific applications is making hardware acceleration a requisite design consideration. But typically these applications are created and implemented by scientists trained in other fields, not the intricacies of parallel processing. Consequently, there is a definite need for abstractions. In this paper, we discuss… (More)
