The real part of the spectrum is symmetrical

The real part of the complex spectrum is shown in the second plot from the top in Figure 1 . It will become important later to note that the real part of the spectrum is symmetrical about the folding frequency near the center of theplot (at the eighth tick mark) .

Without attempting to explain why, I will simply tell you that the real part of the Fourier transform of a complex series whose imaginary part is all zeros (like a typical sampled time series for real-world data) is always symmetrical about the folding frequency.

The imaginary part of the spectrum is asymmetrical

The imaginary part of the complex spectrum is shown in the third plot from the top. Again, it will become important later to note that the imaginary partof the spectrum is asymmetrical about the folding frequency.

Once again, without attempting to explain why, the imaginary part of the Fourier transform of a complex series whose imaginary part is all zeros (like a typical sampled time series for real-world data) is always asymmetrical about the folding frequency.

The converse is also true

It is also true that the values of the imaginary part of the Fourier transform of a complex spectrum whose real part is symmetrical about the foldingfrequency and whose imaginary part is asymmetrical about the folding frequency will all be zero. I will take advantage of these facts later to simplify thecomputing and plotting process.

The amplitude spectrum

The amplitude spectrum is shown in the fourth plot down from the top. Recall from previous modules that the amplitude values are always positive, consistingof the square root of the sum of the squares of the real and imaginary parts.

The output time series

The output time series, produced by performing an inverse Fourier transform on the complex spectrum is shown in the bottom plot in Figure 1 . Compare the bottom plot to the top plot. As you can see, they are the same, demonstratingthe reversible nature of the Fourier transform.

The program named Dsp035

I will discuss this program in fragments. A complete listing of the program is provided in Listing 14 near the end of the module.

The beginning of the class named Dsp035

The beginning of the class for Dsp035 , including the declaration of some variables and the creation of some array objects is shown in Listing 1 . This code is straightforward.

Listing 1. The beginning of the class named Dsp035.
class Dsp035 implements GraphIntfc01{ final double pi = Math.PI;int len = 256; double[]timeDataIn = new double[len];double[] realSpect = new double[len]; double[]imagSpect = new double[len];double[] angle = new double[len];//unused double[]magnitude = new double[len];double[] timeDataOut = new double[len];

Beginning of the constructor

The constructor begins in Listing 2 . The code in Listing 2 creates the input time series data shown in the top plot of Figure 1 .

Listing 2. Beginning of the constructor.
public Dsp035(){//constructor //Create the raw data pulsestimeDataIn[0] = 0;timeDataIn[1] = 50;//... //code deleted for brevity//... timeDataIn[254]= -80; timeDataIn[255]= -80; //Create raw data sinusoidfor(int x = len/3;x<3*len/4;x++){ timeDataIn[x]= 80.0 * Math.sin( 2*pi*(x)*1.0/20.0);}//end for loop

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.

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.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
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
