Research Description

Dr. Brandt-Pearce's research interests lie in the mathematical and numerical description and optimization of communication systems with multiple simultaneously components from different sources. This interest has found applications in a variety of research projects including spread-spectrum multiple-access schemes, multiuser demodulation and detection, study of nonlinear effects on fiber-optic multiuser/ multichannel communications, optical networks subject to physical layer degradations, free-space optical multiuser communications, and radar signal processing and tracking of multiple targets.

Research:

Cross-layer grooming, routing, and wavelength assignment in translucent optical networks (funded by NSF)
Multiuser/multichannel channel characterization and signal processing for WDM systems (funded by NSF)
Ultraviolet non-line-of-sight communications (funded by NSF)
Efficient resource allocation for cognitive radio systems (funded by NTNU)
Signal processing for high-gain cellular repeaters (funded by Andrew Corp.)
