2013 Knovel Virtual Conference - October 15, 2013

| No Comments
Once the rush of the beginning of the academic year is over you may want to consider attending this FREE full-day event that will showcase how you can save time and get to the critical engineering answers you need faster.

Featured keynotes include: "Success Strategies for Introverted Leaders" presented by Lisa Petrilli, CEO, C-Level Strategies  and "Engineering in Sustainable Human Development: Challenges and Opportunities" presented by Bernard Amadei, Prof. of Civil Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder and Founding President of Engineers Without Borders. 

In between, you'll have access to technical sessions on how to get the most out of the new Knovel experience, expert sessions on industry trends, leadership skills and career development advice, as well as how to use Knovel in the classroom and preparing students for the workplace. 

Knovel is a service provided to the Princeton University community through a subscription supported by the Engineering Library. If you want to learn more about Knovel, stop by the Engineering Library or attend a Research Clinic.

“SPIE to host Environmental Nanotechnology online conference

The Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers, Inc. (SPIE) is hosting an online conference to reduce the carbon footprint of technology transfer. The SPIE Environmental Nanotechnology will present 18 speakers in a live conference on October 15 with tracks on Pollution and Energy Reduction and Environmental Sensing.

Conference proceedings papers will be published online in the SPIE Digital Library immediately after the meeting, as approved. The SPIE Digital Library provides access to more than 230,000 technical papers from SPIE Journals and Conference Proceedings from 1990 to the present. More than 17,000 new research papers are added annually.

Nanoscience and nanotechnology have produced many novel materials and devices for a wide range of applications, including electronics, photonics, biomedicine, and energy. Growing awareness of environmental impacts of climate change has created significant opportunity to apply these to pollution-reduction and energy efficiency. Conference topics include technologies enabling these applications, including areas such as photovoltaics, light-emitting diodes, sensors, and stand-off detectors.”

Free Webinar on Photonic Integrated Circuits (4/9/08)

| No Comments

Join IEEE for a Free Webinar on Photonic Integrated Circuits Learn about the latest advancements in photonic integrated circuits in an IEEE webinar taught by IEEE Fellow Christopher R. Doerr. “InP Photonic Integrated Circuits for Fiber-Optic Communications”, scheduled for Wednesday, 9 April 2008 at 2:00 pm EDT, will provide an overview of the technology behind InP PICs, focusing on devices for fiber-optic communications that monolithically integrate two or more functions. Ideal for telecommunications design engineers, research and development engineers and engineering managers, this webinar will highlight how InP-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs) can simplify system designs, reduce space and power consumption, improve reliability and reduce the cost of deploying optical networks.

Christopher R. Doerr earned a B.S. in aeronautical engineering and a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Since joining Bell Labs in 1995, Doerr’s research has focused on integrated devices for optical communication. He was promoted to Distinguished Member of Technical Staff in 2000, received the OSA Engineering Excellence Award in 2002, and became an IEEE Fellow in 2006. Doerr is also the Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Photonics Technology Letters.

Sign up today and receive a complimentary package of IEEE journals and conference proceedings for attending.
