Stanford Photonics Research Center (SPRC) Workshop

Topic: 
Novel Optical and Photonic Materials: Design and Fabrication
Abstract / Description: 

We are witnessing an incredible era of exponential growth in applications that require advances in materials technology: from 3D printing, to AR/VR to autonomous cars to 5G to machine learning and artificial intelligence, for example. Revolutionary new products are steadily coming into the marketplace and many more are needed and expected. OPTICS & PHOTONICS materials play a key role in many of these new products: new displays, new personal mobile devices, new sensors in cars, and new information technology products for both storage and data processing. It is becoming very clear that the areas of OPTICS & PHOTONICS are essential technologies for our nation and the rest of the world. Inventing and uncovering new materials in the OPTICS & PHOTONICS domain will be exceedingly critical to see more and more novel products to help improve people's lives.

This workshop will focus on the need for breakthrough optics and photonics materials: materials that sense, materials that store, transparent materials that fold easily, materials that process information. These materials need to be producible at large scale, energy efficient, and manufacturable at low cost. It is increasingly clear that the use of modern computational techniques (like big data, machine learning, AI) can be used to improve the rate of discovery of these new materials.

Emerging Memory and Artificial Intelligence (EMAI) 2019 Workshop

Topic: 
EMAI '19 Workshop
Abstract / Description: 

A one-day workshop at Stanford University on August 29, 2019, put on by the Stanford Center for Magnetic Nanotechnology and Coughlin Associates, features invited expert speakers to talk about various emerging non-volatile memories and how they will enable the next generation of artificial intelligence (AI) devices in the home, in the factory and in industry. The conference URL is: emai19.sites.stanford.edu.

Memories that will be discussed include Magnetic Random Access Memory (MRAM), Resistive RAM (RRAM), Ferroelectric RAM (FRAM) and Phase Change Memory (PCM). These memories are now available as discrete as well as embedded non-volatile memories and will be the basis of a new generation of devices, working in devices and on the network edge, as well as in data centers. These memories will enable AI inference engines that enable voice recognition, image recognition and system level optimization, all with minimal power utilization compared to conventional volatile memories.

Space is limited for this workshop so register early to ensure that you can come.

The Shoucheng Zhang Memorial Workshop

Topic: 
The Shoucheng Zhang Memorial Workshop
Abstract / Description: 

Our friend, Professor Shoucheng Zhang, passed away on December 1, 2018. This was a great loss for the entire physics community.

To honor Shoucheng and to celebrate his remarkable science and life, a Memorial Workshop from May 2-4, 2019 is being held.

Shoucheng has influenced many of us deeply with his great enthusiasm and unique talent for discovering the beauty and simplicity in physics. We feel that the best way to remember him is to dedicate to him a lively workshop with exciting lectures and a lot of fruitful discussion.

Date and Time: 
Thursday, May 2, 2019 - 8:30am to Saturday, May 4, 2019 - 5:00pm
Venue:

SPRC Workshop, "Sensors for Mobility"

Topic: 
Future of Mobility
Abstract / Description: 

The "Future of Mobility" is revolutionizing the way we live and conduct our business, both in mobile communicators (cell phones, tablets, etc.) and automotive (autonomous and connected driving).

Key to the mobile revolution is the use of sophisticated sensors of all kinds (physical parameters, chemical medical, imaging, etc.). We envision mobile phones with enough chemical and medical sensors to help people avoid going to the doctor for routine checks and to help them check food quality, air quality and health indicators. We envision autonomous cars with advanced "eyes" to recognize neighboring cars, pedestrians, traffic lights, weather conditions and to allow for much safer driving environment.

The area of advanced sensors for mobile phones and automotive is still at its infancy, an opportunity for innovation for industry and academia.

The "Sensors for Mobility" Workshop is a forum for people from academia and industry to exchange ideas for embedded sensors in phones, advanced cameras and LiDARs in automobiles and other sensors for the "Mobile Age."

We will have contributed papers and poster papers from experts in the field.

Workshop Organizing Committee:
Dr. Waguih Ishak, Dr. Tom Baer
Professors: Olav Solgaart, Gordon Wetzstein, Jelena Vuckovic

Date and Time: 
Friday, May 31, 2019 (All day)
