  • Repeating EventSix Sigma Black Belt

    Fri, Nov 04, 2022 @ 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM

    Executive Education

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Abstract: USC Viterbi School of Engineering's Six Sigma Black 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 Black Belt, you will be equipped to support and champion a Six Sigma implementation in your organization. To earn the USC Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate, you will be required to pass the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineer's Black belt exam (administered on the final day of the course).

    Talk Title: Scalable Standing Wave Integrated Circuits for Reconfigurable Power Generation, Radiation and Beam Steering at mm-Wave and Terahertz Spectrum

    Series: Integrated Systems

    Abstract: The power generation of transistors declines as the operation frequency increases. At the same time, the
    free space propagation loss increases, demanding more radiated power from the system. The loss of passive
    elements in the circuit increases as well, making functions such as oscillation or radiation even more challenging. In
    order to boost the limited power, multiple sources need to be coupled together in an array structure. However, the
    significant loss of the coupling circuitry and phase shifters at mm-wave and terahertz frequencies hinders the
    implementation of large and efficient radiator and phased arrays. Scalable standing wave array structures are
    proposed based on efficient low loss coupling schemes in order to boost the power and operation bandwidth.
    Furthermore, a practical approach is proposed to maximize Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) of the
    source by optimizing influential parameters of the radiation apparatus. Finally, we demonstrate a new phase shifting
    method based on combining standing and traveling waves and show how it can achieve significantly higher
    reconfigurability, phase shifting range and bandwidth. Using all these methods we present coupled-oscillators,
    scalable radiator arrays, and reconfigurable phased arrays that can produce high resolution images and achieve
    record beam steering range, tuning range, and output power at mm-wave and terahertz frequencies.

    Biography: Dr. Omeed Momeni (S'04-M'12-SM'18) received the B.Sc. degree from Isfahan University of
