ESE PhD Dissertation Defense: “Enhanced Nonlinearity Enabled via Doped ENZ Metastructures: Theory & Potential Applications”

February 18 at 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Zoom – Email nahvi@seas.upenn.edu for link

Synthetic composite structures, known as metamaterials, have been increasingly applied in the past two decades in numerous applications for obtaining electromagnetic characteristics far beyond naturally occurring materials. In particular, epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) media are a special category of metamaterials which have been shown to exhibit exotic wave-matter interaction properties, rendering them suitable for numerous applications. Exploiting […]

BE Seminar: “Engineering Synthetic Biomaterials for Islet Transplantation” (María M. Coronel)

February 18 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This event will be held virtually via Zoom (check email or contact ksas@seas.upenn.edu). Two major challenges to the translation of cellular-based tissue-engineered therapies are the lack of adequate oxygen support post-implantation and the need for systemic immunosuppression to halt the strong inflammatory and immunological response of the host. As such, strategies that aim at addressing […]

CIS Seminar: “Enabling Hyperscale Web Services”

February 18 at 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Zoom – Email CIS for link, cherylh@cis.upenn.edu

Abstracts:  Current hardware and software systems were conceived at a time when we had scarce compute and memory resources, limited quantity of data and users, and easy hardware performance scaling due to Moore's Law. These assumptions are not true today. Today, emerging web services require data centers that scale to hundreds of thousands of servers, […]
