Conclusion of determining room inpulse responses and deconvolving the response out of a recorded signal.

We began data comparison by observing the differences between the theoretical impulse responses and actual impulse responses in each room. None of the four actual responses were similar to the theoretical responses. The differences could be due the non ideality of the rooms, as the rooms were neither perfectly rectangular nor empty, while Room Demo Response assumed both of these conditions. Clipping was also neglected in the theoretical model. Clipping equalizes all signals above a certain threshold determined by the soudn card in the laptop; this non-linear effect removed information from the signal in such a way that the lost information was unrecoverable by our Fourier analysis. Commercial applications of room impulse response measurements, such as measuring the response from each seat in an orchestra hall, require a more robust theoretical model that accounts for objects in the room as well as the exact shape of a room. Such elaborate theoretical data was not necessary; we were able to access the rooms in question and find the impulse response through direct measurement.

The goal of signal deconvolution was to remove the room response on a recorded signal. However, this process also amplified the noise. Some of the noise was already prevalent in the recorded signal, as our microphones were sensitive enough to hear a group of people conversing outside with the door closed. Since the noise was already in the signal and was not entirely random it could not be easily filtered out. The deconvolution did reproduce the original signal; however the quality was significantly worse than the recorded signal. If we could record the impulse and input responses without noise, our method of deconvolution would be able to reproduce the original high quality recorded signal. Unfortunately this is not possible under normal conditions. Another attempt could also be made using a more complex deconvolution scheme, such as Wiener deconvolution. Ideally we could find a method that is either resistant to noise or removess noise entirely; this would immediately lead to better results. Perfect deconvolution would be useful in creating a clean input signal given a recorded signal regardless of recording environment. Naive deconvolution only works well with noiseless signals. Future applications of our theory would have to use more complex deconvolution methods.

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.
