276 Impedance of a short dipole antenna in a magnetized plasma via a finite difference time domain modelThe traditional analytical analysis of plasma probes requires the use of quasi-static approximations, while numerical methods require the use of an equivalent dispersive media, both producing a nontrivial analysis of the plasma environment. On the other hand, a few techniques that combine the plasm...Antenna theory; finite-difference time-domain; FDTD; Plasma covered antennas; Plasma measurements2005-08
277 Implantable devices for optical neural interfacesOptical neural control requires light delivery techniques dependent on the experimental goal and biological model.

283 Improving the stability of algebraic curves for applicationsAn algebraic curve is defined as the zero set of a polynomial in two variables. Algebraic curves are practical for modeling shapes much more complicated than conics or superquadrics. The main drawback in representing shapes by algebraic curves has been the lack of repeatability in fitting algebraic...2000
284 Improving undersampled MRI reconstruction using non-local meansObtaining high quality images in MR is desirable not only for accurate visual assessment but also for automatic processing to extract clinically relevant parameters.

288 Influence of Sb, Bi, Tl, and B on the incorporation of N in GaAsGaAs:N is an interesting material for many devices due to its unique compositional variation of band gap. Small amounts of N lead to a strong decrease in band gap energy as well as lattice constant. The further addition of In or Sb leads to quaternary alloys with band gap energies below 1.4 eV latti...Antimony; Gallium Arsenide; Nitrogen2002
