A Wide-angle Immersed MEMS Mirror and Its Application in Optical Coherence Tomography
Abstract: This talk introduces a MEMS mirror that can perform large angular scanning in a liquid. Wide-angle OCT imaging results with this submerged MEMS mirror will also be presented.
Xiaoyang Zhang will defend his dissertation entitled "Robust Electrothermally Actuated Scanner for Fiberoptic Endoscopic Imaging and Wide-angle Optics" at 12:45 pm on Tudesday, November 8th in NRF 115 (conference room). Refreshments will be provided.
Seahee Hwangbo, a current IMG member, has received the 2016 IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society (AP-S) Doctoral Research Fellowship Award. The IEEE AP-S awards up to 10 PhD fellowships each year to encourage students to pursue a career in the area of Electromagnetics. The awards are intended to support students involved in project work directed by a faculty member at their institution who is a member of the IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society. The title of her research is: "Millimeter-wave Wireless Interconnects for Intra-/Inter chip Communications using Through Glass Via (TGV) Disc-loaded Antennas in 3D-IC" under the supervision of Dr. Y.K. Yoon.
The award selection is based on creativity and quality of the proposed
project, discussion of the technical interests and skills of the student.
IMG has developed a new graduate certificate program in "Microsystem Technology."
Certificate Description: The Microsystem Technology certificate prepares students for the complex, interdisciplinary development of microsystem technologies such as microactuators, microsensors, microfluidic devices, micropower systems, microoptical devices, and other microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
Requirements for Admission: A bachelor’s degree or equivalent from a regionally accredited institution. Students must be registered in a graduate degree program in the College of Engineering and maintain a 3.0 GPA.
Requirements for Completion: Students must complete the following courses (9 credits total) with a grade of B or higher:
2. Any two of the following:
To register for the certificate, apply here: http://admissions.ufl.edu/start.html (scroll down to the "Certificate" section and follow the prompts). After completing the program requirements, you will earn a printed certificate, and a notation will be made on your UF transcript. For more information, email Dr. Arnold (darnold [at] ufl [dot] edu)
Congratulations to Jose Varillas for winning the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) TL1 Fellowship, 2016-2017. His proposed research is titled Enumeration of Circulating Tumor Cells for Monitoring Cancer Treatment Response.
