(2014-12-05)The sparsity of signals and images in a certain transform domain or dictionary has been exploited in many applications in signal processing, image processing, and medical imaging. Analytical sparsifying transforms such as ...
Prediction of tool temperature during machining of Ti-6Al-4V alloy with atomization-based cutting fluid spray system (2015-07-24)Atomization-based cutting fluid (ACF) spray system is being sought as an alternative to cooling processes currently used for machining difficult-to-cut materials such as Ti-6Al-4V alloy. The ACF spray system generates a ...
(2015-07-23)In this work, we will evaluate a novel design of the second-generation MRI compatible SPECT system, MRC-SPECT-II, based on an inverted compound eye (ICE) gamma camera concept inspired by compound eyes often found in small ...
