306, HP Auditorium Soda Hall
The gut microbiome is an immense microbial ecosystem with unique and diverse metabolic capabilities. In the past decade, it has been associated with multiple chronic and complex diseases, raising great hopes for novel medical advances. But are contemporary microbiome analysis methods useful in a clinical setting? I will present new tools that we developed for the analysis of the gut microbiome...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar

521 Hogan Room Cory Hall
  • Marco Rolandi, Department of Electrical Engineering, University of California, Santa Cruz
The quest for smaller and faster computing has mostly focused on controlling the flow of electrons and holes in nanoscale structures. In living systems, ionic and protonic currents affect physiological function. As such, ionic and protonic devices offer exciting opportunities for bioelectronics. Proton transport in nature is important for ATP oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria, light...

Hybridized Metasurfaces: A New Twist in Flat Optics

60 Evans Hall
  • Prof. Cheng-Wei Qiu, Nat'l University of Singapore, ECE
I will report some of the most recent developments in my group as well as in the field of the interfacial engineering of manipulation of light-matter interactions, via the artificially constructed structures of ultrathin thickness compared to the wavelength. In particular, the low-dimension and high-frequency scaling may promise a lot more interesting applications, while the challenges in design...

Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar

521 Hogan Room Cory Hall
  • Lute Maleki, Srobe - Cruise Automation
LiDAR has been in use since soon after development of laser in 1950’s, as a sensor in several applications in remote sensing. The advent of autonomous vehicles, robotic vision, gaming, etc. has extended the range of LiDAR use from niche areas to new and high-volume applications. While all applications require similar sensing functions from LiDAR, each area typically has very specific needs with...

Stacking Atomic Layers: Quest for New Materials and Physics

60 Evans Hall
  • Prof. Philip Kim, Harvard University, Physics and Applied Physics
Modern electronics has relied heavily on the technology to confine electrons in the interface layers of semiconductors. In recent years, scientists discovered that various atomically thin materials including graphene, a single atomic carbon layer, can be isolated. In these atomically thin materials, quantum physics allows electrons to move only in an effective 2-dimensional (2D) space. By...
