The problem of paraunitary (PU) filter bank design for subband coding has received considerable attention in recent years, not least because of the energy preserving property of this class of filter banks. In this paper, we consider the design of signal-adapted, finite impulse response (FIR), PU filter banks using polynomial matrix EVD (PEVD) techniques. Modifications are proposed to an iterative, time-domain PEVD method, known as the sequential best rotation (SBR2) algorithm, which enables its effective application to the problem of FIR orthonormal filter bank design for efficient subband coding. By choosing an optimization scheme that maximizes the coding gain at each stage of the algorithm, it is shown that the resulting filter bank behaves more and more like the infinite-order principle component filter bank (PCFB). The proposed method is compared to state-of-the-art techniques, namely the iterative greedy algorithm (IGA), the approximate EVD (AEVD), standard SBR2 and a fast algorithm for FIR compaction filter design, called the window method (WM). We demonstrate that for the calculation of the subband coder, the WM approach offers a low-cost alternative at lower coding gains, while at moderate to high complexity, the proposed approach outperforms the benchmarkers. In terms of run-time complexity, AEVD performs well at low orders, while the proposed algorithm offers a better coding gain than the benchmarkers at moderate to high filter order for a number of simulation scenarios. © 2011 IEEE.

This paper presents an efficient algorithmic approach to the GPU-based parallel resolution of dense linear systems of extremely large size. A formal transformation of the code of Gauss method allows us to develop for matrix calculations the concept of stripe algorithm, as opposed to that of tile algorithm. Our stripe algorithm is based on the partitioning of the linear system's matrix into stripes of rows and is well suited for efficient implementation on a GPU, using cublasDgemm function of CUBLAS library as the main building block. It is also well adapted to storage of the linear system on an array of solid state devices, the PC memory being used as a cache between the SSDs and the GPU memory. We demonstrate experimentally that our code solves efficiently dense linear systems of size up to 400,000 (160 billion matrix elements) using an NIVDIA C2050 and six 240 GB SSDs. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

A novel kind of large mode area photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) are proposed in this paper. In order to achieve large effective mode area, a novel technique is applied to seven missing air hole PCF structures. The modal characteristics of PCF structures such as effective mode area, confinement loss, chromatic dispersion properties with doped cores, are investigated by employing the full vectorial finite element method (FEM). Simulation results demonstrate that effective mode area and confinement losses of fundamental mode simultaneously improved by applying our novel technique to proposed structures. The effects of bending on confinement losses of the proposed PCFs have been thoroughly investigated. Additionally, confinement losses of first higher order modes are presented and the possibility of stripping them in a simple way is discussed. © 2011 Published by Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.

A novel large mode area photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is proposed in this paper. Numerical investigations demonstrate that an endlessly single-mode PCF with improved large mode area can be realised by introducing higher index material in the cladding region. Here we discuss how the V-parameter and effective mode area of the PCF can be improved by manipulating the cladding region rather than the core region itself. Moreover, the influence of doping levels with respect to confinement loss, chromatic dispersion and bending loss of the proposed PCF is also investigated by employing the full-vectorial finite element method (FEM).© 2011 Elsevier B.V.
