ABSTRACT This is a brief review paper on the interaction of radio waves with oxygen and water vapor in the atmosphere. It is the first of a series of mini-reviews sponsored by the Wave Propagation Standards Committee of IEEE and is intended primarily for those persons who have not had occasion to study extensively in the subject.

    ABSTRACT: This paper intends to present a summary of the technical issues arising in the exploitation of the 60 GHz mm-wave band for mobile and personal communications. The most significant applications proposed so far are surveyed, with particular emphasis placed on recent experimentation about millimeter-wave propagation for road/railway transportation as well as indoor scenarios. As a case study, the capacity of a (micro-)cellular Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) network in the 60-GHz band is also evaluated in detail.

    ABSTRACT: From an all-weather point of view, radio waves appear to be most suitable for the remote sensing of winds, temperature, water vapor, and liquid of the troposphere. Some background is given on the measured data, and the physical principles involved are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: A number of techniques are now available for the characterization of solid surfaces using an Optical Laser Microscope (OLM). It has firmly established its role in industry and elsewhere for routing high-resolution studies of surface structure and topography. One of the most common operations in machine vision is finding the connected components in an image. In this work, a component-labeling algorithm will find all connected components in an image and assigns a unique label to all points in the same component. After capturing the image from OLM, various grains features were extracted at the first step and shipped to the second step for the final statistical analysis, performed with the aid of MATLAB software. The raster graphics is used to visualize the surface data which is one of the best techniques that has occupied computer graphics analysis. All observable features in material sample can be counted and measured with the aid of the (computerized optical laser microscope).
