Title:
Seminar talk: Magnetic Nanoparticle Swarm for Active Delivery by Dr. Li Zhang
Date:
September 21st
6:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Boise, ID
Abstract:

Abstract

In nature, various types of swarm behaviors occur, such as a flock of birds and a swarm of ants, which stem from local communications of limited individuals. Through collective pattern formation and reconfiguration, these animals dramatically change their swarming patterns according to the environment they interact with. To date, some large-scale robotic systems can well mimic the complex swarm behaviors of natural creatures through algorithm design and wireless communication (Science, Vol. 345, 795–799, 2014). However, due to the absence of onboard processors, sensors and actuators, to create a robotic system with functional swarm behaviors at small scales remains challenging.

Recently, my group has developed a strategy that selects the optimized magnetic nanoparticle swarms (MNS) in different biofluids, such as blood and vitreous humor (Nature Communications, 2019, DOI: 10.1038/s41467-019-13576). The swarms reported may have great potential in medical applications, and this work is an essential intermediate step from the fundamental understanding of nanorobotic swarms to their clinic applications.

In this lecture, I will present the recent research progress on the design and development of MNS from the following three aspects: (i) controlled generation of reconfigurable swarming pattern; (ii) motion control of the MNS in varied fluids; (iii) the perspective of the MNS for biomedical applications.

Title:
Digital Storage and Memory for AI from the Edge to the Data Center
Date:
September 22nd
9:30 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Micron Engineering Center
Boise, ID
Abstract:

Applying AI at the edge and endpoints often requires working under non-data center environments and in power constrained conditions. AI inference also requires significant memory to hold weighting values from training. New non-volatile memories can help provide more memory in a given device die and use less power than NOR flash, SRAM or DRAM. This presentation will talk about changes in the memory/storage hierarchy and how it will change memory and storage in data centers and embedded devices to support energy efficient and low latency AI applications.

Title:
Designing Power System Substations for Grid Reliability – Salt River Project Design Perspective
Date:
September 22nd
10:00 AM (1.5 hours)
Abstract:

Power system substation design and protection is a unique “art” that requires specialized standards to meet every changing system reliability needs, especially with the high level of renewable integration taking part on the Bulk Electric System (BES).  Each utility interprets substation design and protection standards differently based on each utilities unique participation in the wider connected grid. A utility operating as a generation operator with no transmission system may see the design of substations as a sole conduit to transmit the output of their generation resource with less regard for voltage control and overall system reliability.  A utility operating as a transmission provider may be solely focused on reliable transmission of power and equipment damage protection with less focus on balancing generation to load (Balancing Authority jurisdiction).  A utility operating as a Balancing Authority (BA), which is also vertically integrated (i.e. owns generation, transmission and serves load), has a requirement of ensuring substations are designed to ensure load/generation balancing as well as transmission reliability and voltage support.  All of these aspects make designing substations a specialized art for each utility, the reason for which universities do not offer courses in substation design.  This presentation will focus on substation design from Salt River Project’s standards.  The course will cover analyzing and discussing SRP substation one line diagrams, three line diagrams and substation equipment schematics to give a glimpse into the engineering that goes into ensuring a power system operates correctly.

Title:
GCI Aleutians Fiber Project - 860 Miles from Kodiak to Unalaska
Date:
September 22nd
12:30 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Anchorage, AK
Abstract:

After years of planning and preparation, the GCI Alaska United (AU) Aleutians Fiber Project is here! Over the next two years, GCI will execute a bold plan to deploy an 860-mile subsea fiber system to some of the nation’s most remote communities. Running from Kodiak along the south side of the Alaska Peninsula and the Aleutians to Unalaska, the project will deliver urban-level speed, service and reliability for the first time to the communities of Unalaska, King Cove, Sand Point, Akutan, Chignik Bay, and Larsen Bay. 

 

The proposed network is a long-haul submarine fiber middle-mile segment delivering long haul capacity to all identified communities. The long-haul submarine fiber-optic cable system is constructed using a festooned 12-strand submarine fiber cable interconnecting GCI’s existing fiber network in Kodiak, AK to the Aleutian Island chain. The submarine system has landings in the communities of Larsen Bay, Chignik Bay, King Cove, Sand Point, Akutan with final termination in Unalaska. The submarine fiber connects each community using a cable landing station facility via a short land fiber installed in a standard underground conduit and vault system. No mid-span subsea amplifiers will be utilized in the system design.

Nonlinear MEMS: generation, characterization and applications of the chaotic regime
Date:
September 29th
6:30 PM (1.5 hours)
Location:
Santa Clara, CA
Abstract:

Abstract

Micromechanical systems are nowadays essentials in many technological fields, from automotive to smartphones, with an increasing need for healthcare. Because of their small size, these devices encompass fast time response, low power consumption and high sensitivity, which triggered both applied and fundamental studies over various fields of research. This small size also implies a narrow linear range, above which complex phenomena arise. While this complexity may involve undesired outcomes, it may as well open new perspectives with disruptive, unprecedented applications.

In this talk, I will focus on a specific nonlinear phenomenon: the chaotic regime. Starting with a step-by-step introduction on this complex physical process, I will present how such behavior can be observed in any micromechanical resonator. Using experimental results from a piezo-microdiaphragm, I will then explain the figure of merits of such behavior. Finally, I will expose the kind of applications we can expect from such nonlinear systems, ranging from secured data transmission to enhanced detection, with concrete proof of concepts for ultrasonic applications. Note that this talk is intended to be pedagogical, with very rare equations, focusing on the physics and the applications rather than on the mathematics.

Title:
Ultrafast Time Domain Cryogenic CMOS Device Characterization Platform for Quantum Computing Applications
Date:
September 30th
12:00 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Cryogenic electronics have a wide range of applications, ranging from quantum information science to extra-terrestrial electronics to gravitational wave research to high performance computing. However, the dominant application leading the way for cryogenic electronics research is quantum computing, where electronic functionality at 4K or below has become a requirement. The most promising candidate to fulfill this functionality without disturbing the cryogenic environment, and with a path to large-scale integration, is CMOS. Therefore, a lot of effort has been put into the hunt for the right CMOS device technology and obtaining their low-temperature models for designing reliable and accurate cryogenic circuits. Though it has been acknowledged that precise characterization is crucial for reliable low power and low temperature circuit design, obtaining reliable device characterization and reliability at low temperatures has not been sufficiently addressed. Absent especially is the time domain characterization of devices which are crucial for designing accurate analog circuitry. This webinar will review the challenges of using cryogenic CMOS in the field of quantum computing and further discuss the motivation for creating cryogenic ultra-fast time domain device characterization setup for accurate high-performance cryogenic CMOS circuit design.

Abstract:

Want happier and more productive teams?

Among other things, it takes great leadership. And proven strategies can provide a real edge. Enter Bruce Tuckman's phases of team development — a model that’s stood the test of time because it remains highly relevant and beneficial. If you are a leader (or aspire to be one), a member of a team (or may be in one in the future), or are just looking to develop your skills, this talk (based on Bruce Tuckman's model, but with a fresh angle: 0% theory, 100% real-world-based) will give you a practical framework with actionable tips for working in and leading teams successfully.

You'll learn about the five phases — Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and Adjourning — including detailed descriptions of each along with proven strategies for addressing challenges or issues which may occur along the way. You'll understand how to use the model to your advantage by effectively navigating all of the phases with speed and agility, from team set-up to the after-party!

The presentation draws on the speaker’s first-hand, real-world experience, with guidance supported by research, recommendations, and coverage from the IEEE, MIT, Harvard Business Review, Project Management Institute, and many others.

A downloadable two-page, high-resolution PDF presenting an overview of the talk along with the detailed bibliography will be provided to attendees.

Title:
Dr. Corinne Scown, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab: Circular plastics and their implications for the environment
Date:
October 13th
4:00 PM (1 hour)
Location:
Sunnyvale
Abstract:

Mechanical recycling of polymers downgrades them such that they are unusable after a few cycles. Alternatively, chemical recycling to monomer offers a means to recover the embodied chemical feedstocks for remanufacturing. However, only a limited number of commodity polymers may be chemically recycled, and the processes remain resource intensive. We use systems analysis to quantify the costs and life-cycle carbon footprints of virgin and chemically recycled conventional polymers as well as novel polydiketoenamines (PDKs) to understand the cost, life-cycle greenhouse gas, and infrastructure implications of reducing the accumulation of plastic waste in landfills and the environment.

Title:
IEEE APS/EMC/MTT/AESS Radio Regulatory: a View from Inside Industry
Date:
October 13th
6:00 PM (1 hour)
Abstract:

Please join us for our October IEEE APS/EMC meeting. Our speaker will be local member, Douglas Datwyler, P.E., IEEE WCP.

Radio regulatory, as seen in industry, is not easy to accomplish. This presentation will summarize some of the experience of an engineer tasked with assisting a business unit in an IoT and cloud data company to obtain and maintain radio regulatory documentation in more than 10 countries or regions globally for a broad base of radio products or products containing radios of various types. Not all is radio and test labs, but also product safety, materials, and various directives. Some consulting between offices in the group has been performed.

Title:
Making Qubits: Diamond, Photonics, Superconductors, and More
Date:
October 14th
11:00 AM (1 hour)
Location:
Boise, ID
Abstract:

There are many ways to make a quantum computer. Quantum states for computation can be encoded in optical photons, microwaves, ions, electron spins, and more. Dr. Russ Renzas of Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology will review the operational principles, requirements, and current status of different approaches to making qubits, as well as key challenges that must be overcome for scalable fabrication of these sensitive devices.
