    Talk Title: Six Sigma Green Belt

    Abstract: USC Viterbi School of Engineering's Six Sigma Green Belt for Process Improvement, offered in partnership with the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, allows professionals to learn how to integrate principles of business, statistics, and engineering to achieve tangible results. Master the use of Six Sigma to quantify the critical quality issues in your company. Once the issues have been quantified, statistics can be applied to provide probabilities of success and failure. Six Sigma methods increase productivity and enhance quality. As a USC Six Sigma Green Belt, you will be equipped to support and champion a Six Sigma implementation in your organization. To earn the USC Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate, you will be required to pass the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineer's green belt exam (administered on the final day of the course).

    Talk Title: Space-time wave packets: A new frontier for structured light

    Series: Photonics Seminar Series

    Abstract: Exercising control over the spatial degrees of freedom of the optical field has continued to yield breakthroughs over the past few decades, ranging from the discovery of Bessel beams and beams endowed with orbital angular momentum, to optical tweezers and traps, and the manipulation of the field in multimode optical fibers. Separately, but in parallel with these efforts, ultrafast pulse shaping has revolutionized our control over the temporal degree of freedom of the optical field. The spatial and temporal realms in optics have led for the most part independent lives with few examples of creative intersections. In this talk I show that precise, joint sculpting of the spatial and temporal degrees of freedom of optical fields - rather than modulating each separately - yields a new class of pulsed beams that I call 'space-time' (ST) wave packets. Surprising and useful optical behaviors are exhibited by ST wave packets when freely propagating or when interacting with photonic devices, leading to a new frontier for the study of structured light. I will share our recent experimental and theoretical results from this rapidly emerging topic and sketch potential applications that could benefit from ST wave packets.

    Biography: Ayman F. Abouraddy received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from Alexandria University, Alexandria, Egypt, in 1994 and 1997, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from Boston University, Boston, MA, in 2003, all in electrical engineering. In 2003 he joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a postdoctoral fellow, and then became a Research Scientist at the Research Laboratory of Electronics in 2005. He is the coauthor of more than 130 journal publications, 240 conference presentations, and 70 invited talks; he holds seven patents, and has three patents pending, and is a fellow of the OSA. He joined CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics, at the University of Central Florida as an assistant professor in September 2008 and was promoted to full professor in August 2017. His recent research interests are in the area of structured light, particularly in the emerging field of space-time optics and photonics, in addition to quantum optics and quantum information processing.

  • MFD Seminar With Professor Kelsey Stoerzinger

    Tue, Oct 25, 2022 @ 04:00 PM - 05:20 PM

    Mork Family Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Professor Kelsey Stoerzinger, Chemical, Biological & Environmental Engineering Assistant Professor, Oregon State University

    Talk Title: MFD Seminar With Professor Kelsey Stoerzinger

    Series: MFD Distinguished Lecture Series

    Biography: Expertise and Interests:
    Kelsey Stoerzinger's research interests span the (electro)chemical transformation of molecules into fuels, chemical feedstocks, and recovered resources. Special emphasis is put on the use of abundant elements to drive these reactions in an economical and scalable manner by renewable electricity. Surface science approaches are used to probe the reaction mechanism by in situ and operando X-ray and vibrational spectroscopies. In 2021, she received the NSF CAREER award for her work in seawater electrolysis.
