For real-time rectification, researchers have proposed two kinds of rectification hardware circuits.
However, this rectification method still requires considerable memory resources.
To reduce the computational overhead of CL-based rectification, Hyun and Moon proposed a simplified rectification method [18].
For the rectification of distorted stereo images, Son and Moon proposed accumulation-based rectification with radial distortion correction [19].
The proposed rectification method uses the inverse mapping scheme to map rectified image coordinates ( [x.
r] of the rectified image increases by 1 for every pixel calculation while inverse mapping rectification is carried out within one row with fixed row coordinate [y.
Thus, we propose a rectification method that uses multi-level accumulations defined as
The fact that the rectification is best for sample 2 can be explained as below: higher external voltage may result in a widening of the depletion region in which neither p nor n type exists.
So it is expected that the rectification should take a maximum value for a specific concentration of polymer and doping agent, swelling degree, and external field.
It is seen that when the doping concentration is increased the rectification increases.
4 where current at reverse bias and the rectification is tremendously bigger than that of the ones formed upon chemical or physical constructions.
But the best results for steady current and current rectification are obtainable for the composite gel synthesized under electric field where the charge transport can be expected to be more effective compared to the other forms.
