Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We describe how the application of maximum-length sequence (m-sequence) coding can be used to improve the measured signal-to-noise ratio of ultrasonic waves generated by a low power laser diode. Lamb waves were generated in thin metallic plates using a pulsed excitation. To improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the detected signal, various signal processing methods have been evaluated, with m-sequences described here. We also show how the spectral content of the ultrasonic wave can be controlled by using a modified m-sequence approach
