What we have learned so far

So far, the main things that we have learned is that shorter pulses require greater bandwidth, and the bandwidth required to faithfully represent atruncated sinusoidal pulse is the reciprocal of the length of the pulse.

Separating closely spaced frequencies

Now we will look at the issues involved in using spectral analysis to separate and identify the frequencies of two closely-spaced spectral peaks for apulse composed of the sum of two sinusoids. Once again, we will begin by looking at some results and then discuss the code that produced those results.

Five new pulses

The five pulses that we will be working with in this example are shown in Figure 4 . As you can see, these pulses are a little more ugly than the pulses shown in Figure 1 . As you can also see, as was the case in Figure 1 , each pulse appears to be a shorter or longer version of the other pulses in terms of itswaveform.

Produced by dsp032a

The plots in Figure 4 were produced by the program named Dsp032a , which I will briefly discuss later. (A complete listing of the program is shown in Listing 11 near the end of the module.) This program creates and displays pulses identical to those processed by the program named Dsp032 , which I will also briefly discuss later. (A complete listing of the program named Dsp32 is presented in Listing 12 .)

Five time series containing pulses

The program creates and displays five separate time series, each 400 samples in length. Each time series contains a pulse and the pulses are differentlengths. As before, each of the pulses shown in Figure 4 is half the length of the pulse below it.

The sum of two sinusoids

Each pulse consists of the sum of two sinusoids at closely spaced frequencies. The frequencies of the two sinusoids for all pulses are the same.

All frequency values are specified as type double as a fraction of the sampling frequency. The frequencies of the two sinusoids areequidistant from a center frequency of 0.0625 times the sampling frequency.

(Recall that 0.0625 was the frequency of the only sinusoid contained in the pulses shown in Figure 1 and processed by the program named Dsp031 .)

The frequencies and pulse lengths

The frequency of one sinusoid is (0.0625 - 2.0/len) times the sampling frequency, where len is the length of the time series containing the pulse. (The value for len is 400 samples in this program.) The frequency of the other sinusoid is (0.0625 + 2.0/len) times the sampling frequency.

The lengths of the five pulses are:

  • 25 samples
  • 50 samples
  • 100 samples
  • 200 samples
  • 400 samples

(Note that Figure 4 has tick marks every 25 samples.)

The program named Dsp032a

The only new code in this program is the code in the constructor that creates the pulses and stores them in the data arrays. This code consists of fiveseparate for loops, one for each pulse. The code for the first for loop, which is typical of the five, is shown in Listing 6 .

Listing 6. New code in the the program named Dsp032a.
public Dsp032a(){//constructor //Create the raw datafor(int x = 0;x<len/16;x++){ data1[x]= amp*Math.cos(2*pi*x*freq1) + amp*Math.cos(2*pi*x*freq2);}//end for loop //... code removed for brevity}//end constructor

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
