Eric Mazur, Harvard University. Nanotechnology has enabled the development of nanostructured composite materials (metamaterials) with exotic optical properties not found in nature. In the most extreme case, we can create materials which support light waves that propagate with infinite phase velocity, corresponding to a refractive index of zero. This zero index can only be achieved by simultaneously controlling the electric and magnetic resonances of the nanostructure. We present an in-plane metamaterial design consisting of silicon pillar arrays, embedded within a polymer matrix and sandwiched between gold layers. Using an…

MIE: Data-Driven Appointment Book Design via Mathematical Programming

November 1, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Lassonde Mining Building, 170 College St
Toronto, Ontario M5S 3E3 Canada
+ Google Map

YOSSI LUZON, University of Toronto Appointment Booking (AB) processes are commonly employed for managing service systems such as law court rooms and hospital surgical units that have limited resources and high rates of demand. Since various service types are typically involved, as well as demand and service duration variability, these processes are highly complex to efficiently control. In practice, the platform through which the AB process is applied is the system ’appointment book’. Relying on modern data technologies, which offer a vast amount of data of past demand and system performance statistics, the objective of this research is to establish an effective Preplanned-Appointment-Book (PAB) design via mathematical programming methods. The PAB design must adhere to some…

Sandford Fleming, 10 King's College Road
Toronto, Ontario M5S3G4 Canada
+ Google Map

JEAN GOTMAN, McGill University The EEG is commonly used to help diagnose epilepsy and to localize the region of the brain from which seizures are likely to originate. The spatial resolution of EEG is however not very high and the EEG cannot see deep in the brain because of the attenuation of the electrical field with distance. If the EEG is recorded during functional MRI scanning (fMRI), it is possible to study the metabolic changes caused by these epileptic discharges (increases…

WARREN POWELL, Princeton University The problem of making sequential decisions under uncertainty spans a wide range of applications that arise in science, engineering, business, transportation, energy, health and finance.  In contrast with deterministic optimization that enjoys a widely used canonical framework, the academic study of decisions under uncertainty is a fragmented field.  Communities working on these problems (broadly known as stochastic optimization) include operations research (stochastic programming, Markov decision processes, simulation optimization, decision analysis, bandit problems), computer science (reinforcement learning, bandit…

ADA S. Y. POON, Stanford University Miniaturized electronics, when placed inside the body, can wirelessly monitor and modulate internal activity and thus hold promise as a new class of treatments for disorders. The development of such bioelectronic medicines requires wireless interfaces that are tiny and operate deep in a complex electromagnetic environment. In this talk, I will describe a new method for electromagnetic energy transfer that exploits near-field interactions with biological tissue to wirelessly power tiny devices anywhere in the…

JENNIFER CASE, Virginia Tech Going beyond the fads and jargon: What does research tell us about teaching for high quality learning in science and engineering?  There is much contemporary talk on how university teaching is outdated, and how radical change is needed to accommodate the needs of current students and the expectations of the workplace. Many of these calls, whether for active or problem-based learning fall into a longer and broader tradition of progressivism in education. To interrogate their applicability, a…

CARY YANG, Santa Clara University Continuous downward scaling in silicon integrated circuit technology into the sub-20 nm regime has created critical challenges in chip manufacturing, among them, reliability and performance of on-chip interconnects. Current interconnect materials, Cu and W, face increased reliability challenges in the nanoscale as a result of electromigration failures at high current densities. Materials such as nanocarbons, metal silicides, cobalt, ruthenium, and metallic nanowires are being considered as potential replacements for Cu and W. In particular, due…

Seminar: Aliphatic polycarbonate-based biomaterials: from elastic hydrogels to viscous liquids

Dr. Brian Amsden Department of Chemical Engineering, Queen’s University Aliphatic polycarbonates feature low cytotoxicity, a low glass transition temperature, and elasticity. These polymers are readily synthesized through ring-opening polymerization of cyclic carbonates, such as trimethylene carbonate, using a variety of biologically benign catalysts. They are also hydrolysis resistant and degrade in a molecular weight dependent manner through the action of reactive oxygen species and enzymes secreted by activated macrophages. This combination of properties makes them potentially useful for creating a…
