NJIT’s Elisha Yegal Bar-Ness Center for Wireless Communications and Signal Processing Research recently showcased the research of eight doctoral students.  The students’ work was featured in presentations and posters displayed in the area.  The annual event aims to give doctoral students and their professors from the center a chance to exchange information from a year’s worth of work.  The Center is located in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NJIT’s Newark College of Engineering. 

Eight presentations focused on the field’s newest technology.  They were “Power Control for Asymmetrically Clipped Optical OFDM” (Manan Patel with advisor Distinguished Professor Dr. Yeheskel Bar-Ness); “Compressive Sensing for MIMO Radar” (Marco Rossi with advisor Distinguished Professor Alex Haimovich); “Modeling Biochemical Molecular Networks” (Iman Habibi with advisor Professor Ali Abdi) and “Optimal Detection for IM/DD Optical Communication with Single Carrier Transmission Scheme” (Nan Wu with advisor Professor Yeheskel Bar-Ness).

More presentations were: “Software Defined Radio – Communication Lab” (Pelin Salem with advisors Dr. Alex Haimovich and Dr. Osvaldo Simeone); "Adaptive Data Acquisition for Communication Networks (Behzad Ahmadi, advisor Dr. Osvaldo Simeone); “Distributed Compression for Cloud Radio Access Networks (post-doctoral associate Dr. Seok Hwan Park working with Dr. Osvaldo Simeone) and “Detection and Localization of a Passive Source Using a Distributed Array System” (Enlong Hu with advisor Dr. Hongya Ge).  

Established in 1985, the Center focuses on communication theory.  Its main areas of research are CDMA and spread spectrum systems, multi-carrier modulation, ultra-wideband communications, MIMO systems, space-time codes and turbo-codes, information theory, and adaptive signal processing.  Center members are noted experts in this field.
