I need some useful references to parallelize my FDTD Codes. I'm currently working on imaging and scattering analysis of random rough surfaces using numerical methods (FDTD, MoM and etc). In most 3D problems (with large dimensions) there are some restrictions related to memory and CPU time. As a result we need to use fast methods or to parallelize our conventional codes. please give me some simple,fast and useful references which i can utilize it to parallelize my codes. I'm beginner in parallel processing and need help.
Thank you all... specially Mr. Omar Bouattane Because of the parallel solvers. I went to the " https://sourceforge.net/directory/?q=fdtd " and downloaded the parallel FDTD solver. Now I should learn how to use them... Is there any references to tutor me how to use such solvers? are they easy to use?

If the antenna designed has UWB then after immersing in coupling medium will its bandwidth upgrade or degrade?
The coupling medium does not enhance the bandwidth of the antenna. The coupling mechanism shall certainly have reactive elements even though negligible but finite values. It acts as a filter and therefore the overall bandwidth will become narrower.

In the domain of MIMO RADAR, a mathematical development can be achieved to show that a MIMO setup can be replaced by an equivalent SIMO virtual array. It's a great way to optimize the real antennas position, to get a large equivalent aperture with no spatial redundancy and a satisfying spatial sampling. However, this development seems to be valid only for a far field approximation.

Gelatin methacrylate (GelMA) hydrogel is a promising bioink for biofabrication applications due to its cost-effectiveness, ease of synthesis and biocompatibility to allow cell adhesion. However, the GelMA synthesized from a widely used porcine skin gelatin has the thermal gelation problem at room temperature. Here, we present thermally stable GelMA hydrogels at room temperature while maintaining the mechanical and biological properties comparable to porcine GelMA. The novel GelMA hydrogels were synthesized from fish skin and cold soluble gelatin. We systematically characterized the...

A shadow projection approach for near-field microwave imaging is developed to distinguish the size and shape of objects embedded in layered media. An ordinary microwave image may only present a small portion of the front surface of an object due to the lensing effect of refraction at the boundary between two adjacent layers with a high dielectric contrast. Therefore, instead of looking at the primary image, the projection onto the interface behind the object is investigated to better discern the object's true size and shape. A diffraction tomographic algorithm is modified to accentuate the...

Altimeter radar backscatter intensity, in terms of the normalized radar cross section (NRCS), is known to be modulated by surface wind forcing and the state of wind-sea development. Based on a data set of collocated altimeters (including Topex/Poseidon, Jason-1 and Jason-2) and in situ measurements, different responses to various wind speeds and wave ages (i.e. the state of wind-sea development) were illustrated for altimeter dual-frequency NRCSs (Ku-band at 13.6 Hz and C band at 5.4 Hz), which can facilitate the retrieval of wind speed and wave age parameters.

Wideband microwave imaging is of interest wherever optical opaque scenarios need to be analyzed, as these waves can penetrate biological tissues, many building materials, or industrial materials. One of the challenges of microwave imaging is the computation of the image from the measurement data because of the need to solve extensive inverse scattering problems due to the sometimes complicated wave propagation. The inversion problem simplifies if only spatially limited objects—point objects, in the simplest case—with temporally variable scattering properties are of interest. Differential...

This paper deals with the compensation of phase miscalibration in the general context of tomographic synthetic aperture radar image focusing. Phase errors are typically independent of one acquisition to the other, thus leading to a spreading and defocusing in the multidimensional (3-D, 4-D, and 5-D) imaging space. Coping with this problem in presence of volumetric scattering is generally a complex issue. In this paper, we consider the approach for phase calibration characterized by the advantage, with respect to classical phase calibration algorithms, of not requiring either the...

A coordinate transformation based finite element method (called CT‐FEM) is presented for detecting contours of breast cancer tissues in the context of microwave imaging. The geometry and location of a single or multiple cancerous tumors inside a breast tissue are identified by constructing an inverse problem based on the genetic optimization algorithm. The expensive forward solution phase during repeated cost function evaluations is accelerated by placing a transformation medium inside the finite element mesh. This allows using a uniform or rectangular mesh even when irregular tumor...

In this paper, we propose a new technique to generate a range-angle dependent transmit beampattern by introducing a nonlinear frequency modulation scheme based on arctangent function in the frequency diverse array system. The propagation process of the transmitted signals is usually neglected in most of the existing range-angle dependent transmit beampattern synthesis schemes. More specifically, the time variable is considered to be a constant value or defined from 0 to T, where T is the pulse duration for pulsed FDA. As a result, such schemes cease to focus the signal power at a desired...

This paper is concerned with the inverse scattering problem of time-harmonic elastic waves by an unbounded rigid rough surface. A direct imaging method is developed to reconstruct the unbounded rough surface from the elastic scattered near-field Cauchy data generated by point sources. A Helmholtz-Kirchhoff-type identity is derived and then used to provide a theoretical analysis of the direct imaging algorithm. Numerical experiments are presented to show that the direct imaging algorithm is fast, accurate and robust with respect to noise in the data.

Two real-time reconstruction algorithms, quantitative microwave holography and scattered-power mapping, have been shown to be successful in the imaging of compressed tissue of relatively small thicknesses such as 1 cm and 2 cm. In both cases, planar data acquisition of frequency-swept transmission coefficients has been employed. Despite the fact that these algorithms are based on a linear forward model of scattering, they have been capable of providing quantitative estimates of the tissue permittivity due to the experimentally derived kernel of the scattering integral. Here, we demonstrate...

It is well known that the modulus of the far-field pattern (or phaseless far-field pattern) is invariant under translations of the scattering obstacle if only one plane wave is used as the incident field, so the shape but not the location of the obstacle can be recovered from the phaseless far-field data. In this paper, it is proved that the translation invariance property of the phaseless far-field pattern can be broken if superpositions of two plane waves are used as the incident fields for all wave numbers in a finite interval. Based on this, a recursive Newton-type iteration algorithm...

Traditionally, space-based microwave imagers have been used exclusively for providing total atmospheric water vapor along with hydrometeor and surface parameters, using a combination of window channels. These channels operate away from the strong water vapor absorption lines used for atmospheric moisture sounding. Nevertheless, they are sensitive to the vertical distribution of moisture in the atmosphere. This is due to the fact that the water vapor absorption continuum varies monotonically, and the wing effect of the strong absorption lines has a nonconstant effect, across the microwave...

For high-resolution active or passive remote sensing systems a main challenge is the availability of appropriate broad frequency ranges without or at least minor interference or jamming. The disturbing impact may occur in both directions, either the own system is interfering other systems, or the own system is degraded by signals from other sensors. High resolution for active or high sensitivity for passive MW and MMW remote sensing systems is mostly achieved by large system bandwidths of few to even several ten GHz depending on center frequency.

The main difficulty of this problem is the so-called translation invariance property of the modulus of the far-field pattern or the phaseless far-field pattern generated by one plane wave as the incident field, which means that the location of the obstacle can not be recovered from such phaseless far-field data at a fixed frequency.
