  • Digital signal processing approaches to bird song analysis 

    O'REILLY, COLM JOSEPH (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Electronic & Elect. Engineering, 2017)
    The ability to automatically analyze bird vocalizations would provide major assistance to zoologists in their behavioral and ecological studies. Revisions of taxonomy need to be made in cases where a population of species ...
  • Discontinuity analysis for video processing 

    Denman, Hugh (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2007)
  • Dynamic properties of nanoparticle magnetic systems 

    Giannitsis, Athanasios T. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2004)
    This thesis is concerned with the study of the dynamic properties of ferrofluids, which are an important class of physical systems where microscopic magneto-mechanical effects can be manifested. There are two processes ...
  • Effect of electric field on the polarised infrared spectra of smectic liquid crystals 

    Jamshidi, Mohammad Mehdi (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2000)
    In this research Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy has been used to investigate the effect of the polarised infrared beam and the electric field on the orientational behaviour of the ferroelectric and antiferroelectric ...
  • Efficient methods for the computation of high frequency electromagnetic wave scattering from piecewise smooth surfaces using the integral equation formulation 

    Rossi, Luca (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2000)
    The motivation for this work is the need for rigorous, efficient, accurate and robust computational methods for implementing deterministic radio wave propagation models to enable planners and operators make good use of UHF ...
  • Embodied sonification 

    Roddy, Stephen (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2016)
    Sonification is the communication of data using sound. This thesis is concerned with meaning-making in sonification. It examines how meaning emerges during sonification listening through the lens of embodied cognitive ...
  • Enabling coalitions between Independent Networks 

    Tallon, Justin (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2015)
    The ways in which networks are built, owned and controlled have evolved in recent years. The traditional model, of a single entity owning or somehow participating in the entire telecommunications value chain, has begun to ...
  • Enhanced multi-antenna capabilities through small cell collaboration 

    Finn, Danny (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2015)
    This thesis shows that collaboration between base stations in small cell scenarios can lead to enhanced multiple-antenna gains. We demonstrate this for the case of multi-user MIMO-based reassignments between adjacent small ...
  • Enhancement, summarization and analysis of videos of Nephrops habitats 

    Sooknanan, Ken (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2014)
    Harvesting the commercially significant lobster, Nephrops Norvegicus, is a multi-million dollar industry in Europe. Stock assessment is essential for maintaining this activity but it is conducted by manually inspecting ...
  • Example based image processing 

    Gallagher, Claire (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2007)
  • Fabrication of ultra-shallow boron junctions using proximity rapid thermal diffusion 

    Nolan, Martina (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2000)
    This work presents proximity rapid thermal diffusion (RTD) as a technique for fabricating shallow p-type junctions for LDD devices. Boron-doped spin-on dopant (SOD) is used as a dopant source in proximity RTD. Fourier ...
  • Fast probabilistic inference and GPU video processing 

    Kelly, Francis (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2006)
  • Flexibility in ad hoc networks 

    Forde, Timothy Kirby (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2005)
    This thesis represents a step forward in our understanding of what flexibility, adaptability and reconfigurability means at the network-layer of mobile, wireless, ad hoc networks. Mobile, wireless, ad hoc networks are ...
  • Flexo-elastic and electro-optical studies of some novel liquid crystalline systems 

    Balachandran, Reshma (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2014)
    This thesis presents the experimental investigation of the material properties of liquid crystalline systems composed of (i) bent-core molecules, (ii) bimesogens composed of rod-like molecules and (iii) dimesogens composed ...
  • Handling transparency in digital video 

    Elgharib, Mohamed A. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2011)
  • High-level event detection in broadcast sports video 

    Rea, Niall (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2005)
    This thesis investigates semantic analysis of broadcast sports footage. A domain dependent sports video model is proposed. Under this model, the game semantics can be derived according to their relationship with the ...
  • Intermolecular and interlayer interaction in chiral smectic-C liquid crystals 

    Song, Jang-Kun (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, 2008)
    The molecular and interlayer interactions in smectic-C phases have been investigated in detail. This topic is one of the less well established subjects in the field of liquid crystals. Various new physical phenomena were ...
  • Investigation of Objective Neurophysiological Measures of Auditory Temporal Processing Abilities and Their Applicability in Cochlear Implant Rehabilitation 

    WAECHTER, SASKIA MARLEEN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Electronic & Elect. Engineering, 2019)
    Speech is the most important form of human communication. For people affected by disabling hearing loss, speech information may become unavailable causing social isolation and cognitive decline. People with mild to profound ...
