CSIF to host Photometrix webinars  

The first will be a quick short session review of imaging principles, terminologies for all who deal with imaging and image analysis. 

The second webinar will cover the core understanding of different camera designs.

  • Date: 9/30 Wednesday 11:00am-12:15pm
    • Basic Principles of Scientific Imaging – Covers basic subjects like resolution and sensitivity, sources of noise and what types are important for specific applications, quantum efficiency, and a practical session with a live camera demo to apply these principles.  
  • Date: 10/1 Thursday 11:00am-12:15pm
    • Introduction to Camera Technology – Covers the sensor differences between CCD, EMCCD, sCMOS, and back-illuminated sCMOS. This will cover the pros and cons with each of these sensors for different applications and why. This also incorporates the principles from the Principles of Basic Scientific Imaging (such as QE, noise, and pixel size), but it is not required to attend the first to understand the second.

EE 185: Interactive Light Sculpture Project workshop

Topic: 
Weekly Workshop
Abstract / Description: 

Workshops for the EE125 art project are Mondays 1-4PM in Packard 001 (Wednesday if Monday is a holiday).

Students, Staff, Faculty, and Friends of the EE department are encouraged to participate.

The art project to celebrate the 125 anniversary of the EE department is coming along nicely. The piece will consist of 50-100 shapes hanging in the stairwell along the white interior wall and exterior glass in a stroke that starts in a point, broadens in the center, then comes to a point again. The individual shapes are inspired by the profile of the stairwell itself as seen from the sky above, and involve dichroic moving elements around a vacuum-formed body. The motion and illumination of each shape is individually programmable.

This quarter, the project is finalizing all of the engineering decisions of an individual shape and building them. The weekly workshops will focus on hands-on building activities to help with this. The current schedule of workshop projects is:

1/6 Strategic planning
1/13 Program wing animations
1/22 Make vacuum-formed bodies
1/27 Install body LEDs
2/3 Build wing mechanisms
2/10 Build communication circuit boards
2/19 Build wings
2/24 Install wings
3/2 Full assembly

Workshops meet 1-4PM in Packard 001.

This timeline may likely change a little as we encounter unforeseen problems. But generally speaking, you can show up to a workshop and expect to be able to take part in building the piece. For the latest schedule, please refer to the link below.

The individual shapes are inspired by the profile of the stairwell itself as seen from the sky above, and involve dichroic moving elements around a vacuum-formed body. The motion and illumination of each shape is individually programmable.

This quarter, the project is finalizing all of the engineering decisions of an individual shape and building them. The weekly workshops will focus on hands-on building activities to help with this. The current schedule of workshop projects is:

1/6 Strategic planning
1/13 Program wing animations
1/22 Make vacuum-formed bodies
1/27 Install body LEDs
2/3 Build wing mechanisms
2/10 Build communication circuit boards
2/19 Build wings
2/24 Install wings
3/2 Full assembly

Workshops meet 1-4PM in Packard 001.

This timeline may likely change a little as we encounter unforeseen problems. But generally speaking, you can show up to a workshop and expect to be able to take part in building the piece. For the latest schedule, please refer to the link below.

EE 185: Interactive Light Sculpture Project workshop

Topic: 
Weekly Workshop
Abstract / Description: 

Workshops for the EE125 art project are Mondays 1-4PM in Packard 001 (Wednesday if Monday is a holiday).

Students, Staff, Faculty, and Friends of the EE department are encouraged to participate.

The art project to celebrate the 125 anniversary of the EE department is coming along nicely. The piece will consist of 50-100 shapes hanging in the stairwell along the white interior wall and exterior glass in a stroke that starts in a point, broadens in the center, then comes to a point again. The individual shapes are inspired by the profile of the stairwell itself as seen from the sky above, and involve dichroic moving elements around a vacuum-formed body. The motion and illumination of each shape is individually programmable.
