    Etymology: [L. detectio an uncovering, revealing.]


  1. Detection

    In general, detection is the extraction of particular information from a larger stream of information without specific cooperation from or synchronization with the sender. In the history of radio communications, the term "detector" was first used for a device that detected the simple presence or absence of a radio signal, since all communications were in Morse code. The term is still in use today to describe a component that extracts a particular signal from all of the electromagnetic waves present. Detection is usually based on the frequency of the carrier wave, as in the familiar frequencies of radio broadcasting, but it may also involve filtering a faint signal from noise, as in radio astronomy, or reconstructing a hidden signal, as in steganography. In optoelectronics, "detection" means converting a received optical input to a electrical output. For example, the light signal received through an optical fiber is converted to an electrical signal in a detector such as a photodiode. In steganography, attempts to detect hidden signals in suspected carrier material is referred to as steganalysis. Steganalysis has an interesting difference from most other types of detection, in that it can often only determine the probability that a hidden message exists; this is in contrast to the detection of signals which are simply encrypted, as the ciphertext can often be identified with certainty, even if it cannot be decoded.
