  • Proof of concept for adaptive sequential optimization of free-space communication receivers 

    Carrizo, Carlos E.; Mata Calvo, Ramón; Belmonte Molina, Aniceto (Optical Society of American (OSA), 2019-07-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    In a downlink scenario, the performance of laser satellite communications is limited due to atmospheric turbu- lence, which causes fluctuations in the intensity and the phase of the received signal, leading to an increase ...
  • Transition from Dirac points to exceptional points in anisotropic waveguides 

    Gomis Bresco, Jordi; Artigas García, David; Torner Sabata, Lluís (American Physical Society, 2019-10-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    We uncover the existence of Dirac and exceptional points in waveguides made of anisotropic materials, and study the transition between them. Dirac points in the dispersion diagram appear at propagation directions where the ...
  • Detecting Targets above the Earth's Surface Using GNSS-R Delay Doppler Maps: Results from TDS-1 

    Hu, Changjiang; Benson, Craig; Hyuk, Park; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Qiao, Li; Rizos, Chris (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-10-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    : Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) reflected signals can be used to remotely sense the Earth’s surface, known as GNSS reflectometry (GNSS-R). The GNSS-R technique has been applied to numerous areas, such as the ...
  • Sensitivity of L-band vegetation optical depth to carbon stocks in tropical forests: a comparison to higher frequencies and optical indices 

    Chaparro Danon, David; Duveiller, Grégory; Piles de la Fuente, María Pilar; Cescatti, Alessandro; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Entekhabi, Dara (2019-10-01)
    Article
