Seminar 10/24/2012 - Bahram Jalali, UCLA: Evolution of Phototonic Time Stretch: From wideband A/D Conversion to Optical Rogue Waves & Blood Screening

Bio:
Prof. Jalali is the Northrop-Grumman Endowed Chair in Optoelectronic and Professor of Electrical Engineering at UCLA with joint appointments in the Biomedical Engineering Department, California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) and the UCLA School of Medicine Department of Surgery.  He serves as the Chair of EE Department’s Physical Wave Electronics area.  He received his Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Columbia University in 1989 and was with Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey until 2002 before coming to UCLA.  He is a Fellow of IEEE, the Optical Society of America (OSA), and the American Physical Society (APS).  He is the recipient of the R.W. Wood Prize from Optical Society of America for the invention and demonstration of the first Silicon Laser.  In 2005, he was elected into the Scientific American Top 50, and received the BridgeGate 20 Award in 2001 for his entrepreneurial accomplishments.

Abstract:
We show how the ability to slow down, amplify, and capture fast and rare events can produce high-throughput real-time instruments ranging from digitizers, spectrometers, flow-through microscopes, phase contrast cameras, and imaging vibrometers that are showing promise for scientific, biomedical, and industrial applications.

All seminars are held on Wednesdays from 12:00 noon-1:00 p.m. in the Bowen Hall Auditorium Room 222. A light lunch is provided at 11:30 a.m. in the Bowen Hall Atrium immediately prior to the seminar.
