As an example of novel device capabilities, I will discuss the generation of strong optical forces in these ultra small light confining structures. degrees in Physics in the Technion in 1998, and then took a Postdoctoral position at MIT in the Material Science department.
We have recently shown that optical forces can enable controllable, static manipulation of photonic structures, an important step towards enabling recently proposed functionalities for optomechanical devices, such as self-aligning and optical corralling behaviour. Prior to joining Columbia, Lipson was a member the faculty of Cornell University since 2001, and was named the Given Foundation Professor of Engineering at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2013.
Among his publications is the recent book Principles of Cognitive Radio (Cambridge University Press, 2013). Poor is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Sciences, and is a foreign member of the Royal Society.
Recent recognition of his work includes the 2014 URSI Booker Gold Medal, and honorary doctorates from several universities.
This will be a huge risk as these distributed energy resources (DER) can introduce random, frequent and large fluctuations in supply, demand, voltage and frequency.
It will also be a tremendous opportunity as these DERs are intelligent, and hence capable of implementing active control that can improve system robustness, security, and efficiency.Professor Kristin Pettersen, Norwegian University of Science and Technology Thursday, Oct.22, 2015 p.m., room SF1105 : Snake robots are motivated by the long, slender and flexible body of biological snakes, which allows them to move in virtually any environment on land and in water.Professor Susan Hagness, University of Wisconsin-Madison Thursday, January 28, 2016 p.m., room SF1105 : The endogenous (and possibly exogenously influenced) dielectric properties of tissue at microwave frequencies vary across different tissue types and physiological states. degree in electrical engineering from Northwestern University in 19, respectively.These properties may be exploited to differentiate tissues via low-power microwave imaging and to selectively heat diseased tissue at higher power levels. Since 1998, she has been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she currently holds the title of Philip D.These advances should enable future micro-optomechanical systems (MOMS) with novel and distinct functionalities. Lipson is one of the pioneers of the field of Silicon Photonics, which today is recognized as the path for solving several of the major bottlenecks in microelectronics. She is a co-founder of Pico Luz a company specializing in nonlinear silicon photonic components.: Michal Lipson joined the faculty of Electrical Engineering Department as the Higgins Professor in July 2015. She holds over 20 patents , is the author of over 200 technical papers and since 2001 has graduated over 25 Ph. Professor Lipson’s honors and awards include Macarthur Fellow, Blavatnik Award, IBM Faculty Award, and NSF Early Career Award. She was recently named by Thomson Reuters as a top 1% highly cited researcher in the field of Physics.: Steven Low is a Professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Department of Computing & Mathematical Sciences at Caltech.Before that, he was with AT&T Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ, and the University of Melbourne, Australia. Professor Michal Lipson, Columbia University Thursday, Nov.He was on the Technical Advisory Board of Southern California Edison and a member of the Networking and Information Technology Technical Advisory Group for the US President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) in 2006. 19, 2015 p.m., room SF1105 : Silicon is evolving as a versatile photonic platform with multiple functionalities that can be seamlessly integrated.He is a Senior Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Control of Network Systems and the IEEE Transactions on Network Science & Engineering, is on the editorial boards of NOW Foundations and Trends in Electric Energy Systems, and in Networking. The tool box is rich starting from the ability to guide and amplify multiple wavelength sources at GHz bandwidths, to optomechanical MEMS and opto-fluidics devices.
