Hi,@大路 郑

Yes, you can separate the signal components from the noise using the fact that the signal components in the two lines have a 180-degree phase difference. One effective way to do this is by subtracting one line of data from the other. This will cancel out the signal components (since they are 180 degrees out of phase and will add up destructively), leaving you with a signal that primarily consists of noise. Then, you can use signal processing techniques such as filtering to isolate the signal component.

Here's a step-by-step MATLAB approach to achieve this:

- Subtract one line of data from the other to eliminate the signal component.
- Use filtering techniques to isolate the noise-free signal.

Below is the MATLAB code to demonstrate this process:

% Sample data generation (for demonstration purposes)

% Replace this with your actual data

fs = 1000; % Sampling frequency

t = 0:1/fs:1-1/fs; % Time vector

f = 50; % Frequency of the signal component

signal1 = sin(2*pi*f*t); % First signal component

signal2 = -sin(2*pi*f*t); % Second signal component with 180-degree phase shift

noise1 = 0.5*randn(size(t)); % Noise in the first line

noise2 = 0.5*randn(size(t)); % Noise in the second line

data1 = signal1 + noise1; % First line of data

data2 = signal2 + noise2; % Second line of data

% Step 1: Subtract one line of data from the other

data_diff = data1 - data2;

% Step 2: Filter the noise from the resulting data to isolate the signal component

% Design a bandpass filter to isolate the frequency of interest

d = designfilt('bandpassiir', 'FilterOrder', 4, ...

'HalfPowerFrequency1', f-10, 'HalfPowerFrequency2', f+10, ...

'SampleRate', fs);

% Apply the filter to the original data to isolate the signal component

isolated_signal = filtfilt(d, data1);

% Plot the results

figure;

subplot(3,1,1);

plot(t, data1);

title('Data 1');

xlabel('Time (s)');

ylabel('Amplitude');

subplot(3,1,2);

plot(t, data2);

title('Data 2');

xlabel('Time (s)');

ylabel('Amplitude');

subplot(3,1,3);

plot(t, isolated_signal);

title('Isolated Signal Component');

xlabel('Time (s)');

ylabel('Amplitude');
