Entropy Minimization Based Synchronization Algorithm for Underwater Acoustic Receivers
This paper presents a new entropy minimization criterion and corresponding algorithms that are used for both symbol timing and carrier frequency recovery for underwater acoustic receivers. It relies on the entropy estimation of the eye diagram and the constellation diagram of the received signal. During the parameter search, when perfect synchronization is achieved, the entropy will reach a global minimum, indicating the least intersymbol interference or a restored constellation diagram. Unlike other synchronization methods, this unified criterion can be used to build an all-in-one synchronizer with high accuracy. The feasibility of this method is proven using a theoretical analysis and supported by sea trial measurement data.
Nobel Prize in Physics 2000, how Silicon lost its groove.
In 1957 Herbert Kroemer published a paper entitled “Quasi-Electric and Quasi-Magnetic Fields in Non-Uniform Semiconductors". In it he expressed the utility of non-uniform semiconductor alloys in exploiting their natural atomic potential gradients to imply quasi-electric fields. The breakthrough in Modulation Doped Field Effect Transistors ( or MODFETs) came from the ground-breaking work done by him and Zhores Alferov on Semiconductor hetero-structures that utilize these very fields. I will examine just Herbert’s findings.
These are the words that I manifest.
