    Talk Title: Fiber Optics Manufacturing in Space (FOMS): Live Payload Demo

    Abstract: Photonics manufacturing is taking the first steps outside our planet. The sustainable orbital manufacturing with commercially viable and profitable operation has tremendous potential for driving the space exploration industry and human expansion into outer space. FOMS Inc. team identified an opportunity of revolutionary optical fiber manufacturing in space that leads to the first commercial production on orbit. This NASA and CASIS sponsored mission is driven by strong commercial potential for manufacturing operations on board the International Space Station. The emerging Space Fiber TM product line applications are discussed. The world's first actual orbital manufacturing payload prototype will be demonstrated.

    Biography: Prof. Dmitry Starodubov is a Chief Scientist of FOMS Inc. (San Diego, CA) who also recently joined USC Electrical Engineering as a visiting research faculty. Dr. Starodubov carrier path includes high profile technology positions including Technology Officer of IPG Photonics (NASDAQ: IPGP), Director of Bio- and Nano Photonics at POC and Technology Officer of USC startup D-STAR Technologies. He is an author of 23 US Patents, more than 100 publications and recipient of 2002 Photonics Excellence and 2012 Photonics Prism awards. Dr. Starodubov is a Senior OSA Member and Fellow of SPIE.
