Topic: 
Aging characterization of scaled Metal Gate / High-K devices and its impact on CMOS circuit degradation
Abstract / Description: 

Time-zero variability and variability induced by device aging is a growing concern for aggressively scaled transistor technologies with metal gate/high-k stacks. Bias temperature instability (BTI) in PMOS and NMOS devices is considered the most dominant time-dependent variability contributor and needs to be modeled using stochastic processes. The physical nature of the stochastic process is still under debate and to support model development efforts large statistical data sets are essential. In this presentation, we will focus on the characterization challenges related to the BTI process in large and small area CMOS devices and discuss how to obtain discrete SRAM and logic device level data beyond 3s. We will further illustrate the impact of the stochastic variation on CMOS circuits like SRAM and ring-oscillators. Finally we will highlight opportunities for application of time-resolved electrical characterization methods to improve the understanding of novel devices.

Applied Physics/Physics Colloquium: Quantum Entanglement in Higher Dimensions

Topic: 
Quantum Entanglement in Higher Dimensions
Abstract / Description: 

2015 Robert Hofstadter Memorial Lecturer

Many fundamental experiments in quantum information have been performed with qubits, i.e. in rather low dimensional Hilbert spaces. Various experimental techniques have recently opened up discrete higher dimensions for experiments. These are particularly multi-mode interference and photon states with more complex wavefronts, like orbital angular momentum (OAM) states.

I will present some recent results focusing on OAM states and on verifications of entanglement in very high dimensions. So far, entanglement of quantum states with quantum numbers around 1,000 and of superposition in more than 100-dimensional Hilbert space have been realized. This may shed interesting light on the question of the quantum-classical transition. I will also discuss recent experiments for using some of these states in quantum communication with higher alphabets.

Entangled quantum states also provide novel ways for nonlocal imaging. Most recently, it was seen that one can obtain imaging where the photon interacting with the object does not even have to be detected. This exploits the fact that the phase of a product state cannot be localized.

Stanford Engineering Hero Marcian “Ted” Hoff

Topic: 
Technology for Today’s Problems
Abstract / Description: 

Join us on campus for a talk by Stanford Engineering Hero Marcian "Ted" Hoff, who is best known as the architect of the first microprocessor, Intel's 4004, released in 1971.

In his talk, Technology for Today's Problems, Dr. Hoff will look at the enormous progress in semiconductor technology since 1971, discuss its impact and explore some current problems that technology can help address.

Semiconductor technology has made possible so many things we take for granted today— smart phones with cameras, global positioning and anywhere, anytime access to vast stores of information. But the world faces many ongoing problems, most notably the pressures on our environment caused by global population and economic growth. Instead of leaving these problems to future generations, we could use our knowledge to seek solutions and create vital new businesses at the same time. Computers can help, but we must harness or invent other technologies to truly make a difference.

The Stanford Engineering Heroes program recognizes the achievements of Stanford engineers who have profoundly advanced the course of human, social and economic progress through engineering.

Beyond prosthetics: brain-machine interfaces as common clinical tools

Topic: 
Beyond prosthetics: brain-machine interfaces as common clinical tools
Abstract / Description: 

To date, the scope of brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) has largely been to restore lost function to people with paralysis stemming from conditions such as neurodegenerative disease and spinal cord injury. These systems interface with the brain using neurosurgically implanted electrodes, measure the voltage of individual and groups of neurons, and translate these measurements via a decoding algorithm to control an end effector such as a computer cursor. I will discuss work performed in preclinical rhesus models that led to the highest performing communication BMI demonstrated to date, as well as recent results of an ongoing clinical trial where these preclinical algorithmic innovations have been successfully translated to a human participant, again yielding the highest communication rates of any known clinical BMI.

The example of prosthetics is just one important application leveraging intracortical BMIs as a platform for accurately assessing and acting on the neural state. However, these measurements could play a crucial role in the diagnosis and management of a wide range of neurological and psychiatric diseases and disorders, ranging from stroke and epilepsy to depression and unconsciousness. Just as EEG recordings help localize seizures both temporally and spatially, and MRI imaging provides morphological and gross functional evaluations of the brain, BMI measurements may reveal previously unrecognized disease-specific adulterations in the neural state. Not only could this aid in forming better prognoses, but may also lead to interventions to prevent or alleviate undesirable symptoms and improve rehabilitation. In this manner, the utility of BMIs could extend far beyond communication or motor prosthetics to become an indispensable clinical tool in the treatment of brain disorders. I will discuss the emerging potential and key initial steps of this new class of medical system.

Circuitry underlying robust perception and memory

Topic: 
Circuitry underlying robust perception and memory
Abstract / Description: 

The nervous system is a surprisingly noisy place. For example, if one presents the exact same stimulus to an animal many times, and records the activities of their sensory neurons, those neural responses typically show high levels of trial-to-trial variability. At the same time, we have the experience of having robust thoughts and perceptions. How do our brains generate this robustness from systems of individually unreliable components? In my talk, I will discuss three major circuit mechanisms that have been advanced by my research program. First, I will discuss a mechanism through which the nervous system can learn the statistical structure of the stimuli that it typically experiences. This knowledge allows for the nervous system to make educated guesses about the most likely stimulus presented, even when that stimulus is corrupted by noise. The de-noising process works best when the stimuli, and the noise that corrupts them, have different statistical structures. This motivates the second principle that I will discuss, namely that the peripheral nervous system can shape its noise statistics such that the noise only minimally interferes with the transmission of information about the external world. In particular, I will present a circuit mechanism through which the retina appears to perform this noise shaping. Finally, I will confront the fact that neural systems (like those involved in memory) must typically maintain stable representations even while the responses of individual neurons evolve dynamically over time, and are noisy. Using modern data-science tools, I will illustrate a novel mechanism through which the hippocampus appears to solve this problem. In addition to the importance of these circuit mechanisms for basic science, I will highlight in my talk the implications of my work for the creation of useful biomimetic technologies.

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.

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.
