IMG Seminar: Object Oriented Programming in MATLAB (And How it Will Make Your Lumped Element Models Better)

Event date: 
Fri, 05/28/2010 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Within IMG, MATLAB codes are used extensively to predict device performance, usually via lumped element models (LEMs). As these models increase in complexity, it becomes harder to keep track of the many workspace variables, function input/output syntax, data formats, etc. It can also be extremely difficult to save simulation results or post-process in organized ways.

Dr. Nishida Presents at Symposium on Energy Harvesting

Dr. Toshikazu Nishida recently gave an invited talk at the Symposium on Energy Harvesting and Sensors for Structural Health Monitoring, Electronic Materials and Applications in Orlando, FL. His talk was entitled "MEMS vs Bulk Piezoelectric Energy Harvesters for Self-Powered Sensors for Structural Health Monitoring."

Dr. Fan wins E.T.S. Walton Award

Professor Z. Hugh Fan won the E. T. S. Walton Award from Science Foundation Ireland in Aug. 2009. The award enables him to take a two-semester sabbatical, assuming Walton Visiting Professorship in the Biomedical Diagnostics Institute (BDI) at Dublin City University in Ireland. BDI is comprised of more than 100 scientists, developing diagnostic platforms through integration of clinical, industrial and academic expertise. Professor Fan’s work at BDI will focus on device design and testing for sorting and concentration of rare circulating tumor cells.
