Numerical evaluation of the performance of different materials in nonlinear optical applications

In this research paper, a D-shape structure of photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is introduced. Here, prime optical transmission characteristics like as nonlinearity, numerical aperture (NA), effective area, confinement loss are obtained by selecting finer mesh and finite element method (FEM). Gallium phosphide (GaP), Tellurite, Silicon Nano Crystal, and Chalcogenide are separately used as a core material and they show better performance than previously published articles. Silicon nanocrystal provides the nonlinearity of 52358618.29 W−1Km−1, GaP of 3471273.165 W−1Km−1, chalcogenide of 3584986.3 W−1Km−1 and tellurite of 307870.6261 W−1Km−1 at the operating wavelength 0.1 μm. With our best of knowledge, the performance of different ceramics materials in optical nonlinear applications is evaluated for the first time. This structure also lends little mode area of 1.20 × 10−13 m2, low confinement loss of 4.32 × 10−4 at the wavelength 0.1 μm and high numerical aperture of 0.86 at 1.5 μm. All these outcomes can play an important role in biomedical imaging, sensing, supercontinuum application, amplification of optical parameter, and other nonlinear applications.

Optimization and cost-benefit assessment of hybrid power systems for off-grid rural electrification in Ethiopia

Standalone solar photovoltaic systems are increasingly being distributed in Ethiopia, but these systems are sub-optimal due to their intermittent power supply. A hybrid system that integrates and optimizes across solar photovoltaic and complementary energy sources, such as wind and diesel generation, can improve reliability, and reduce the unit cost of power production. This study assesses the potential of a hybrid system to electrify a remote rural village in Ethiopia. The Hybrid Optimization of Multiple Electric Renewables model is used to assess primary data, develop a load profile and identify the optimal least-cost system option for the village. A sensitivity analysis was performed to determine the effect of variations in solar radiation, wind speed, and diesel price on optimal system configurations. The results show that a hybrid system with a combination of photovoltaic array, wind turbine, battery and diesel generator is the best option from an economic point of view. To meet the village's daily peak demand of 19.6 kW, energy generation cost is estimated at 0.207 dollars per kilowatt hour and net present cost at 82,734 dollars. The optimal system allows for a reduction of 37.3 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year compared with diesel-only electricity generation.

Survey of EMF emitted by domestic appliances in Dhaka

This research aims to explore if the Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) released by numerous domestic appliances affects the people. There is a typical threshold value for electric and magnetic fields endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO). Electro-Magnetic Fields can instigate health risks to a living organism. There has been no such study performed in Bangladesh on domestic appliances. The data were collected from various home appliances in different locations in Dhaka, Bangladesh: Baridhara, Shyamoli, Mirpur, and Shakher tek. Both threshold values of electric and magnetic fields, as well as magnetic field values, were measured for several electrical and electronic appliances. Results obtained from magnetic field maximum values revealed that in numerous instances the magnetic field released from the various devices had exceeded the threshold limit.

Design and Performance Exploration of a DGS Metamaterial MPA by Etching Four Dual Isosceles Triangular Defects on the Ground Plane

A design and performance analysis of a metamaterial (MTM) based rectangular microstrip patch antenna (RMPA) with four dual isosceles triangular defects on the metallic ground plane have been presented in this paper. At first, a conventional RMPA is designed by using Isola FR-408 (lossy) substrate material (ε r = 3.75 and tan δ = 0.0013). After that, the RMPA with four dual isosceles triangular defected ground structure (DGS) has been designed and verified as metamaterial with the help of Nicolson Ross Weir (NRW) method. Professional CST software has been used to perform the simulation of the designed antennas. The bandwidth of the proposed metamaterial antenna is enhanced by 345.71% compared to our designed conventional RMPA (105 MHz for conventional RMPA and 468 MHz for metamaterial RMPA), return loss is reduced from -23.10 dB to -44.299 dB, gain is enhanced from 0.205 dB to 6.291 dB, directivity is increased from 5.179 dB to 9.314 dB and voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) is of 1.0123 which indicates very good VSWR.

Performance Evaluation of Random Forests and Artificial Neural Networks for the Classification of Liver Disorder

Liver is the major organ inside the human body which is very supportive for digesting food, eliminating poisons, and stocking energy. The rate of Liver disorder patients is rapidly rising all over the world. But it is very hard to identify the disorder from its ambiguous symptoms which increases the mortality rate due to this disease. The paper represents an expert scheme for the classification of liver disorder using Random Forests (RFs) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs). The methods train the input features using 10-fold cross validation fashion. The dataset named as BUPA liver dataset is retrieved from UCI machine learning repository for our research study. The performance of the proposed scheme is assessed in view of accuracy, positive predictive value, negative predictive value, sensitivity, specificity and F1 score. The scheme delivers a better result for training but comparatively low for testing. The scheme obtained the accuracy of 80% and 85.29% by RFs and ANNs respectively along with the F1 score of 75.86% and 82.76% in testing phase.

An Adaptive Routing Algorithm for on-chip 2D Mesh Network with an Efficient Buffer Allocation Scheme

Network-on-Chip (NoC) is thought to be an effective packet-switched on chip arrangement for System-on-Chip (SoC) paradigm. Using router in a NoC, higher throughput is facilitated which is desirable for dealing with the difficulty of current systems. For proper usage of the communication bandwidth and to diminish transportation delay, an intelligent routing mechanism is required. Also a proper buffer management is essential to reduce packet drops and area overhead. Several routing algorithms and buffering techniques are proposed so far. In this paper, we propose a modified XY routing algorithm coupled with an on-demand buffer allocation concept for a mesh on-chip network and compare the performance of our algorithm with other frequently used algorithm named as Odd-Even and DyAD routing. Simulation results indicate that the proposed algorithm achieves better performance than traditional XY-routing and other algorithms in terms of latency and throughput. Again, the effect of using different number of virtual channels in the router buffer is also studied here.

Sentiment Extraction from Bangla Text : A Character Level Supervised Recurrent Neural Network Approach

Over the recent years, people are heavily getting involved in the virtual world to express their opinions and feelings. Each second, hundreds of thousands of data are being gathered in the social media sites. Extraction of information from these data and finding their sentiments is known as a sentiment analysis. Sentiment analysis (SA) is an autonomous text summarization and analysis system. It is one of the most active research areas in the field of NLP and also widely studied in data mining, web mining and text mining. The significance of sentiment analysis is picking up day by day due to its direct impact on various businesses. However, it is not so straightforward to extract the sentiments when it comes to the Bangla language because of its complex grammatical structure. In this paper, a deep learning model was developed to train with Bangla language and mine the underlying sentiments. A critical analysis was performed to compare with a different deep learning model across different representation of words. The main idea is to represent Bangla sentence based on characters and extract information from the characters using a Recurrent Neural Network (RNN). These extracted information are decoded as positive, negative and neutral sentiment.

Silicon nano crystal filled photonic crystal fiber for high nonlinearity

A novel design of circular hybrid photonic crystal fiber (CH-PCF) with high nonlinearity and high numerical aperture (NA) is introduced in this paper. The numerical simulation results are obtained by using finite element method (FEM) and selecting finer mesh. Some fundamental optical parameters such as nonlinearity, effective area, scattering loss, power fraction and NA for the two orthogonal polarized modes are rigorously evaluated. Significant improvement of PCFs in terms of the non-linearity and NA are demonstrated by carefully investigating of the geometrical parameters of structure. The reported design undoubtedly confirms high nonlinearity of 128873.1183 W−1km−1 for x-polarization and 152134.1052 W−1 km−1 for y-polarization respectively at the optical wavelength of 0.5 μm. Simultaneously, outmost NA of 0.57 and 0.59 are found at optical wavelength λ = 2.5 μm. So, the obtained outcomes make the proposed PCF a prominent candidate in super continuum generation as well as all optical signal processing applications.
