ESE Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “Optical and Spin Dynamics of Quantum Emitters in Hexagonal Boron Nitride at Room Temperature”

July 13 at 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Raisler Lounge (Room 225), Towne Building, 220 South 33rd Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104 United States

Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) is a van der Waals material that hosts defect-based quantum emitters (QEs) at room temperature, providing an unparalleled platform for realizing devices for quantum technologies and studying light-matter interactions. Recent observations suggest the existence of multiple distinct defect structures responsible for QEs. Theoretical proposals suggest vacancies, substitutional atoms, and their complexes as likely defect candidates. However, experimental identification of the QEs’ electronic structure is lacking, and key details of the QEs’ charge and spin properties remain unknown. This thesis focuses…

ESE Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “Learning Environmental Models with Multi-Robot Teams Using a Dynamical Systems Approach”

July 14 at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
PERCH 303, Pennovation 3rd Floor, 3401 Grays Ferry Avenue, Bldg 6176
Philadelphia, PA 19146 United States

Robots have the capability to sense and track natural phenomena for environmental monitoring, deepening our understanding of the world. Robotic modeling of such phenomena is essential to operating in complex environments, allowing robots to perform in more realistic scenarios. Thus, representing complex environments is paramount to the success of multi-robot teams. While considerable efforts have been made for modeling with multi-robot teams, specifically in coordination and distributed methods, these techniques have limitations in spatiotemporal, complex environments. These environments can be…

ESE Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “Creating dynamical robots of different morphologies and sizes through automatic origami design”

July 14 at 12:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Room 313, Singh Center for Nanotechnology, 3205 Walnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19104 United States
+ Google Map

The morphology of a robot, especially as it pertains to both the scale and the shape of the machine, represents a critical set of design choices that are often overlooked in favor of using familiar rigid links to construct kinematic chains. In contrast to these traditional construction methods, the nascent field of origami robots provides a fertile proving ground to re-evaluate the traditionally held maxims of robot design. To this end, this thesis explores and establishes practical, mathematically rigorous design…
