Adaptive beamforming for quadrupole resonance
2007 (English)In: Digital signal processing (Print), ISSN 1051-2004, E-ISSN 1095-4333, Vol. 17, no 3, 634-651 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We present several adaptive beamforming approaches to improve the quadrupole resonance (QR) signal detection performance via exploiting both the spatial and temporal correlation of radio frequency interferences (RFIs). We operate in the framework of signal amplitude estimation with known signal waveform and make use of three adaptive beamforming approaches, viz., the standard Capon beamformer (SCB), the robust Capon beamformer (RCB), and the amplitude and phase estimation (APES) algorithm, to develop several new approaches for mitigating the spatially and temporally correlated RFIs. Simulated and experimental results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approaches.
