  • A robust adaptive blind multichannel identification algorithm for acoustic applications

    We propose a robust adaptive blind multichannel identification algorithm in the frequency domain. It utilizes the fast Fourier transform (FFT) to reduce computational complexity when the channel impulse response (IR) is long. Moreover, the Newton-LMS algorithm is obtained in the frequency domain with small computational load to improve the convergence speed. The advantage of the proposed method is its robustness to input noise, especially when the channel IR is long, e.g., the room acoustic IR with a length up to hundreds or thousands taps. The conventional methods cannot obtain an estimate with acceptable accuracy and low computational load. The situation becomes worse when the input signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is low. Simulation results show that the proposed method is suitable for estimating long multichannel IRs in practical environments.

  • A Versatile Multi-Channel Data Acquisition System for Seismic and Acoustic Applications

    Versatility and reliability were key factors in the the design of a minicomputer based digital data acquisition system. Used both at sea and on the polar ice with excellent results, it has been adapted to tasks ranging from at-sea continuous seismic profiling to low level acoustic transmission experiments. Of particular interest is a floating point amplifier utilizing a unique gain switching method developed to permit simultaneous sampling of multiple channels up to a 1 kHz signal hand- width. Other features include continuous or intermittent recording in a time demultiplexed format, floating point normalization hardware, sampling times traceable to absolute time, and real-time video display of selected data channels. The system can be used for analysis and processing when not in the acquisition mode.

We discuss results obtained on ferroelectric properties using remnant hysteresis cycle measurements, piezoelectric properties by evaluation of the d<sub>33</sub> coefficients and electrical properties by measuring the capacitance.

  • Active and passive underwater acoustic applications using an unmanned surface vehicle

    Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) is a novel kind of oceanic platforms, which is potential to be an effective platform for acoustic applications. Active and passive underwater acoustic experiments using our USV called USBV at Ji-hong- tan reservoir in Qingdao on July 15-17, 2015 and at Wu-zhi-zhou Island in the South China Sea on January 3-6, 2016 are presented to quantify this potential. The acoustic sensors integrated in USBV contain an acoustic modem, a self- contained hydrophone and a single beam echo sounder with CORS GPS. In active acoustic experiment, fixed and mobile acoustic communications, bathymetry and acoustic remote are evaluated using USBV. The favorable signal strength of communication ensures that USBV integrated an acoustic modem can be used as acoustic nodes, gateways and even mobile relay. The bathymetric survey is applied successfully for USBV using CORS-GPS without tides observation. In passive acoustic experiment, USBV's radiated self-noise in different situations and above communication's signal are recorded, so the acoustic signature of USBV is acquired. The low level of USBV's radiated self-noise affirms that USBV is a reasonable platform for passive monitoring. The above experiment results indicate that the USV integrated acoustic modem, echo sounder and hydrophone can benefit to active and passive underwater acoustic research.

  • A CMOS digitized silicon condenser microphone for acoustic applications

    In this paper, a CMOS digitized silicon condenser microphone for acoustic applications is newly proposed. The proposed digitized silicon condenser microphone is attractive due to that the sensing sensor and all the circuits are robust and compact to be integrated. Besides, another innovation of this proposed digitized silicon condenser microphone is that it could be operated without charge pump circuits. Thus, the sensing sensor and circuits can be performed at the same power supply. Based upon the device parameters of 0.35 μm 2P4M CMOS technology with 3 V power supply, measurement results have successfully verified the correct functions and performance of the proposed digitized silicon condenser microphone. The area of the proposed digitized silicon condenser microphone is 1444 × 1383 μm2and the power consumption is 6.1 mW. The proposed digitized silicon condenser microphone is suitable to be applied on mobile phones, laptops, PDAs, and hearing aids, etc.

  • Wide-band piezoresistive microphone for aero-acoustic applications

    A surface micro-machined microphone employing recrystallized metal-induced- laterally crystallized (RC-MILC) polycrystalline silicon (Poly-Si) piezoresistor is developed for aero-acoustic applications. A static sensitivity of ~0.4μV/V/Pa is measured using a nano-indentation technique and a useful bandwidth starting from ~100kHz with a resonance peak at ~400kHz has been obtained using shock waves generated using a the high-voltage electrical spark discharge.

  • Monitoring Pacific herring abundance with combined acoustic and optical technologies

    The Prince William Sound Science Center has monitored the abundance of Pacific herring in Prince William Sound, Alaska, since 1993. The effort has expanded in the past three years because of the critical role of herring as winter- period forage for the endangered Steller sea lions. The new effort includes more seasonal coverage in Prince William Sound and expansion to herring populations around Kodiak Island. While acoustic applications for Pacific herring are well developed, species information has required expensive direct capture techniques. In the past three years, underwater cameras have been used for species identification. This application has become very effective both for identification and information on school structure and behavior.

  • Spectral control of sparker acoustic sources

    Impulsive acoustic sources are important in a variety of industrial, academic medical, environmental and military applications. By their nature impulsive acoustic sources have a broadband acoustic spectrum and spectral control is limited. The source level, peak frequency of the acoustic spectrum and the ambient pressure are inter-related. For instance any change in an impulsive source's depth (i.e. ambient pressure) shifts the acoustic spectrum. The author reports on three approaches for partially controlling the acoustic spectrum. In the first an enclosure is placed around the impulsive acoustic source to shift the peak in the acoustic spectrum to higher frequency. The presence of the pod increases the pressure and reduces the bubble oscillation period. This shifts the acoustic spectrum to higher frequency. The pressure, and hence peak frequency, depends on the pod's size, thickness and material. The second tailors the electrical power pulse to alter the spectral width of the acoustic spectrum. For instance increasing the electrical pulsewidth narrows the acoustic spectrum. The third uses multiple pulses (i.e. a pulse train) to "synthesize" an acoustic spectrum by producing peaks and nulls to shape the spectrum. A train of pulses from one or more impulsive acoustic sources can generate a wide range of spectral shapes. This paper is intended to make sparker source capabilities more widely known so they can be used in underwater acoustic applications to meet requirements where existing acoustic sources are inadequate.

  • Distributed low-cost microphone array for 3D localization for bio-acoustic applications

    In this paper we present a multi-scale microphone array aimed at 3D source localization, with applications in bioacoustic animal tracking. We propose a hardware architecture for wirelessly synchronized sensor nodes consisting of small 5-element microphone arrays. Using this distributed sensor array we set up a probabilistic source localization problem, which we subsequently demonstrate to be able to estimate the position of a bat-like sound source in three dimensions. The proposed hardware architecture allows scalable source localization in a wide variety of application domains.

    We have successfully grown high quality piezoelectric single crystals of Sr3NbGa3Si2O14(SNGS), Sr3TaGa3Si2O14(STGS) and GdCa4O(BO3)3(GdCOB) by the Czochralski technique. Dielectric, elastic and piezoelectric constants of SNGS and STGS were measured in a temperature range from 25°C to 400°C. Some parameters of SNGS, STGS and GdCOB crystals important for acoustic applications have been investigated also at temperatures up to 940°C. The strong piezoelectric activity of all investigated materials is kept at least up to this high temperature.
