The Physical Electronics group focuses on theoretical and experimental research projects involving fabrication of electronic materials and new and advanced devices as well as organic and inorganic micro/nanostructures for device applications. A major focus is creating technologies that enable new levels of performance in devices, circuits, systems, sensors and energy conversion/harvesting.
Intensive research is still underway exclusively in the field of signal, image, and video processing which in turn explores engineering issues associated to the modeling of signals starting from the physics of the problem, developing and evaluating algorithms for extracting the necessary information from the signal, and the implementation of these algorithms on electronic and opto-electronic systems. In particular modern research areas include filter design, fast transforms adaptive filters, spectrum estimation and modeling, sensor array processing, image processing, motion estimation from images, and the implementation of signal processing algorithms through appropriate technologies with real time applications in sonar, radar, speech, geophysics, computer-aided tomography, image restoration, robotic vision, pattern recognition, MPEG video compression for transmission and storage, print quality enhancement, and feature extraction etc. The use of image processing techniques and its associated algorithms in remote sensing is a remarkable area of research expertise including speech recognition and synthesis.
