Jacobs Design Conversations: Kyle Wiens

310 Jacobs Hall
About Jacobs Design Conversations: Each semester, the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation invites leading designers and makers to Berkeley to speak as part of the Jacobs Design Conversations series. Connecting diverse perspectives under one roof, Jacobs Design Conversations are spaces for dialogue on a broad spectrum of innovations and ideas. As part of this series, Kyle Wiens will share...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: Designing a semiconductor photovoltaic diode array for a retinal prosthesis

521 Hogan Room Cory Hall
  • Theodore Kamins, Stanford University
Several groups are investigating silicon devices to be implanted near the retina for patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and retinitis pigmentosa (RP), in which the photoreceptors degrade while other parts of the retina remain mostly functioning. One class of these devices, subretinal photodiode arrays, aims to replace the degraded photoreceptors and couple to the functioning...

Big Advantages of Going Small: Nanostructured Perovskite-phase Cesium Lead Iodide: Nano Seminar Series

390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building
  • Prof. Aaron Fafarman, Drexel University, Chemical Engineering
Perovskite-phase cesium lead iodide (CsPbI3) possess three almost too-good-to-be-true properties for photovoltaic and electroluminesence applications and one Achilles heel: it is not stable under ambient conditions. This talk will provide an introduction to CsPbI3, highlighting our contributions to identifying and understanding some of its remarkable chemical, physical and functional properties....

Rigidity and tolerance for perturbed lattices

1011 Evans Hall
  • Yuval Peres, Microsoft Research
Consider a perturbed lattice {v+Y_v} obtained by adding IID d-dimensional Gaussian variables {Y_v} to the lattice points in Z^d. Suppose that one point, say Y_0, is removed from this perturbed lattice; is it possible for an observer, who sees just the remaining points, to detect that a point is missing?

Berkeley ACM A.M. Turing Laureate Lecture: The Land Sharks are on the Squawk Box with Michael Stonebraker

Banatao Auditorium Sutardja Dai Hall
  • Michael Stonebraker, M.I.T.
This Turing Award talk intermixes a bicycle ride across America during the summer of 1988 with the design, construction and commercialization of Postgres during the late 80’s and early ‘90’s. Striking parallels are observed, leading to a discussion of what it takes to build a new DBMS. Also, indicated are the roles that perseverance and serendipity played in both endeavors. Bio: Michael...

Ultrafast Manipulation of Topological Phases in WTe2 Nanolayers: Nano Seminar Series

390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building
  • Prof. Aaron Lindenberg, Stanford Univ., Materials Science & Engineering
Manipulation of topological invariants in quantum materials plays a key role in topological switching applications and can stabilize emergent topological phases in otherwise trivial materials. Lattice strain has been proposed as one means of tuning these topological invariants. However, conventional means of applying strain are not extendable to controllable time-varying protocols. In particular,...
