    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In the past few years, it has been established that Laser Ablation Surface Engineering (LASE) is a very effective way of producing surfaces which have Secondary Electron Yields (SEY)¿<¿1. This can be achieved with a variety ...
  • Random-Walk laplacian for frequency analysis in periodic graphs 

    Boukrab, Rachid; Pagès Zamora, Alba Maria (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-02-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents the benefits of using the random-walk normalized Laplacian matrix as a graph-shift operator and defines the frequencies of a graph by the eigenvalues of this matrix. A criterion to order these frequencies ...
  • Sea ice thickness estimation based on regression neural networks using L-band microwave radiometry data from the FSSCat mission 

    Herbert, Christoph Josef; Muñoz Martin, Joan Francesc; Llaveria Godoy, David; Pablos, Miriam; Camps Carmona, Adriano José (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-04-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Several methods have been developed to provide polar maps of sea ice thickness (SIT) from L-band brightness temperature (TB) and altimetry data. Current process-based inversion methods to yield SIT fail to address the ...
  • On the wireless microwave sensing of bacterial membrane potential in microfluidic-actuated platforms

    Article
    Open Access
    The investigation of the electromagnetic properties of biological particles in microfluidic platforms may enable microwave wireless monitoring and interaction with the functional activity of microorganisms. Of high relevance ...

  • Asymmetrical clipping optical filter bank multi-carrier modulation scheme 

    Ibrahim Mohamed Badr, Asmaa; Prat Gomà, Josep Joan; Ismail, Tawfik (2021-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Filter bank multi-carrier (FBMC) is considered a promising alternative to the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) scheme. It improves spectral efficiency by eliminating the need for cyclic prefix while ...
  • A comparative analysis of aerosol optical coefficients and their associated errors retrieved from pure-rotational and vibro-rotational raman lidar signals 

    Zenteno Hernández, José Alex; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Rodríguez Gómez, Alejandro Antonio; Muñoz Porcar, Constantino; D'Amico, Giuseppe; Sicard, Michaël (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2021-02-11)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper aims to quantify the improvement obtained with a purely rotational Raman (PRR) channel over a vibro-rotational Raman (VRR) channel, used in an aerosol lidar with elastic and Raman channels, in terms of signal-to-noise ...
  • Aerosol radiative impact during the summer 2019 heatwave produced partly by an inter-continental Saharan dust outbreak – Part 1: Short-wave dust direct radiative effect 

    Cordoba Jabonero, Carmen; Sicard, Michaël; López Cayuela, María Ángeles; Ansmann, Albert; Comerón Tejero, Adolfo; Zorzano, María-Paz; Rodríguez Gómez, Alejandro Antonio; Muñoz Porcar, Constantino (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2021-04-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    The short-wave (SW) direct radiative effect (DRE) during the summer 2019 heatwave produced partly by a moderate, long-lasting Saharan dust outbreak over Europe is analysed in this study. Two European sites (periods) are ...
  • Quality of transmission estimator retraining for dynamic optimization in optical networks
