Results for our ELEC 301 Project for Fall 2003. By: Chris Omidiran, Genaro Picazo, Ian Wells, Daniel Wu


Here are the three test images, at multiple levels of compression in either dictionary. (Note that 0% compression does not necessarily lead to full recovery - this is a problem inherent in the dct basis. It would likely take more than twice as much data to represent the original image nearly perfectly.)

We decided to run our algorithms on the three images with a non-redundant basis, just to see how the compressions compared.

Data analysis

Based on preliminary tests, we concluded that orthogonal matching pursuit produced approximations very similar to those generated by basis pursuit in a fraction of the time. However, varying the basis in our over-complete basis produced dramatic changes in our compressions, as did the inherent visual characteristics of the source image. These observations suggest that a wide spectrum of interesting results from orthogonal matching pursuit can be obtained by varying both the dictionaries and the original image. Our results show that for the three images, the basis that give the best representation with the most compression is the DFT-DCT basis, although compression in this manner often results in an unfortunate spectral artifact on images that exhibit sharp changes in color, a product of the DFT basis. The Dirac basis seemed best suited to picking out "lines" in the image, as we predicted. Interestingly, and as shown by the following graphs, the DCT basis dominated both overcomplete dictionaries, accounting for a vast majority of the compressed image - but the DFT/Dirac based vectors, however few there were, managed to make very significant changes to the overall apprearance of the final image.

We also analyzed how frequently vectors from either basis were being selected, ie which basis was the most influential.

(4 = 98% compressed, 16 = 87%, 64 = 50%, 128 = 100%)

there is no specific books for beginners but there is book called principle of nanotechnology
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.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
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.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
