A Single-Stage Passive Vibration Isolation System For Scanning Tunneling Microscopy, Toan T. Le 2021 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

A Single-Stage Passive Vibration Isolation System For Scanning Tunneling Microscopy, Toan T. Le

Master's Theses

Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) uses quantum tunneling effect to study the surfaces of materials on an atomic scale. Since the probe of the microscope is on the order of nanometers away from the surface, the device is prone to noises due to vibrations from the surroundings. To minimize the random noises and floor vibrations, passive vibration isolation is a commonly used technique due to its low cost and simpler design compared to active vibration isolation, especially when the entire vibration isolation system (VIS) stays inside an Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) environment. This research aims to analyze and build a single-stage ...

Vowel Harmony Viewed As Error-Correcting Code, Yvo Meeres, Tommi A. Pirinen 2021 University of Hamburg, Germany

Vowel Harmony Viewed As Error-Correcting Code, Yvo Meeres, Tommi A. Pirinen

Proceedings of the Society for Computation in Linguistics

Robustness reduces the risk of information loss. At present the notion of error-correcting codes (ECCs) is used to achieve robustness in technical fields only. Viewing fault-tolerant natural systems as systems equipped with error-correcting codes permits a formal comparison of natural and technical robustness.

Instancing natural language (NL), we show differences in technical and natural error-correcting approaches. By picking a specific grammar phenomenon which some NLs exhibit – vowel harmony (VH) – we show that (1) VH can be formalized as an ECC as well as (2) VH adds to the robustness of its NL. We provide empirical as well as formal evidence ...


Water Surfaces Detection From Sentinel-1 Sar Images Using Deep Learning, Chao Huang Lin 2021 Central Washington University

Water Surfaces Detection From Sentinel-1 Sar Images Using Deep Learning, Chao Huang Lin

All Master's Theses

Nowadays, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images have been widely used in the industry and the scientific community for different remote sensing applications. The main advantage of SAR technology is that it can acquire images from nighttime since it does not require sunlight. Additionally, it can capture images under the cloud where the traditional optical sensor is limited. It is very convenient to use SAR image for surface water detection because the flatness of the calm water surface reflects off all the energy from the radar and this makes the surface water appears in a SAR image as dark pixels. The ...
