Title:
Microwave Photonic Radars
Date:
March 2nd
6:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

As the only method for all-weather and long-distance target detection and recognition, radar has been intensively studied since it was proposed, and is considered as an essential sensor for future intelligent society. In the past few decades, great efforts were devoted to improving radar's functionality, precision, and response time, of which the key is to generate, control and process a wideband signal with a high speed. Thanks to the high frequency, large bandwidth, low loss transmission and electromagnetic immunity provided by modern photonics, implementation of the radars in the optical domain can provide better performance in terms of resolution, coverage and speed which may not be achievable using traditional, even state-of-the-art electronics. In this talk, I'll give an overview of the photonic technologies that are currently known to be attractive for radars. System architectures and their performance that may interest the radar society are emphasized. Emerging technologies in this area and possible future research directions are discussed.

Title:
Past, present, and potential future California adoption methodologies for renewable energy resources
Date:
March 4th
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
San Francisco
Abstract:

The challenge:  How to streamline the interconnection of renewable generators without impacting the safety and reliability of the existing power system?  Please note that the interconnection and operation of any generator, including intermittent renewable resources, will affect the power flow (steady state and fault current) and associated voltages on the existing power system.  The federal and state energy policies since 1980 seeked to minimize the generator interconnection time and costs.  Unstated in the policies is that the existing system and public safety are not compromised.

This presentation will attempt to answer the following questions:

  • How to keep the power flow (load and fault) after each DER interconnection within the equipment ratings and the operating voltages within allowed service voltage ranges on the entire feeder ?
  • How to interconnect smaller generators at low penetration levels to the existing distribution system safely with minimal studies/time/costs at low penetration levels?
  • How to ensure that the future power system will stay reliable with high levels of uncontrolled intermittent renewable energy resources?
  • How to transition from large central station power plants to distributed renewable power at minimal costs to the ratepayers/taxpayers ?

Title:
Additively-Printed Multilayer Flexible Substrates with Z-axis Interconnects
Date:
March 18th
12:00 PM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

There is an increased emphasis on the use of thin and flexible form-factors for electronic products. Rigid electronics uses glass-epoxy impregnated substrates for the assembly of components. The use of additive flexible-electronics opens opportunities for seamless integration of the electronics assemblies on non-planar surfaces in addition to achieving a shorter product ramp-up to first prototype owing to the elimination of the print and etch processes and mask tooling. A number of printing processes have emerged for the additive fabrication of electronics including aerosol-jet printing, inkjet printing, direct-write and screen printing. In this presentation, results from the study of process-property-performance relationships in process development of additively printed multi-layer substrates with z-axis interconnects are presented. Data on the fabrication of substrates is presented using the aerosol-jet printing process. A number of print parameters have been studied including carrier mass-flow rate, sheath mass-flow rate, ink flow rate, stage speed, standoff height, chiller temperature, platen temperature, and sintering process parameters. Better understanding of the effect of each process parameter in the printed lines will allow users to select appropriate process parameters for design functional performance. The effect on the print process may be in the form of line consistency and resistance –- both of which have been quantified in this study through the quantification of process-capability for z-axis interconnects. Data is presented on 2-layer, 5-layer and 8-layer substrates.

IEEE SUSTECH-TALK #5: How Emerging Markets are Leading the Cashless Evolution & Sustainability of a Cashless Society
Date:
March 23rd
6:00 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Irvine, CA
Abstract:

ABSTRACT

Over the past several decades, retail segment, banks, FinTechs, government organizations, and other financial institutions have been working diligently on developing a financial world that allows for all financial transactions to take place without using cash (i.e., cashless) –i.e., by using debit and credit cards to contactless cards and now utilizing digital wallets. 

Blockchain has been identified and being used as the core technology for the global cashless transformation.

This global transformation has been given a significant boost by the COVID-19 related challenges, but while people globally scrambling for less physical contact (contactless) in their day-to-day transactions, they may well be overlooking more fundamental flaws and complex challenges of a completely cashless society. In this talk, we will address the pros and cons of going completely cashless, Blockchain role as the core technology, status of going cashless in various counties and who is leading (and why) as well as political economic implications and challenges of a cashless world.

Title:
Packaging And Interconnect Technologies For Cryogenic And Quantum Systems
Date:
April 22nd
12:00 PM (1.2 hours)
Abstract:

-- thin-film, multi-conductor, flexible, superconducting cables, low insertion loss ...
Over the past several years, we have been developing an array of packaging and integration technologies for cryogenic, superconducting and quantum systems. These technologies include thin-film, flexible superconducting microwave transmission line cables and cable-to-cable connector technologies that can enable densely integrated cryogenic electronics systems. Rigid or hand-formable co-axial cables, that are used in present systems, are bulky and often limit the integration of a large density of input/output signals into cryogenic environments, due to system constraints including volume and thermal load. Suitable connector technologies are an urgent need for these systems, as well. In this talk, I will describe our research and development efforts to realize high performance, multi-conductor superconducting flexible cables and connectors made using thin-film processing techniques. I’ll also discuss our efforts and the associated challenges with characterizing superconducting cables with extremely low insertion loss at multiple 10’s of GHz. The flexible superconducting cables that we are developing show great promise as interconnect structures for future superconducting and cryogenic electronics systems, including superconducting quantum computing applications.
