Call for Nominations Editor-in-Chief IEEE Journal of Photovoltaics
The IEEE Journal of Photovoltaics (JPV) is a peer-reviewed, archival publication reporting original and significant research results that advance the field of photovoltaics (PV). The PV field is diverse in its science base ranging from semiconductor and PV device physics to optics and the materials sciences. The journal publishes articles that connect this science base to PV science and technology.
We invite nominations for the position of Editor-in-Chief (EiC) for JPV for a 3-year term beginning in January 2021.
- A brief IEEE-style biography (up to 250 words) of the nominee
- A complete CV and list-of-publications of the nominee
- A brief statement from the nominator on nominee’s qualification and how the nominee meets the criteria listed above
- A letter from nominee’s employer indicating support for the EiC activity
- Endorsement from two IEEE members on the nomination
- Optionally, a statement (up to 500 words) from the nominee on his/her vision for the journal.
- Self-nominations are encouraged
SSCS & MTT-S Joint Webinar:
Chip-Scale Wave-Matter Interactions at RF-to-Light Frequencies: Circuits, Systems and Applications
Presented by Ruonan Han
Date: August 25th, 2020
Time: 12PM EDT
Abstract: Traditional electromagnetic (EM) spectral sensors using integrated circuit technologies (e.g. automotive radars, security imagers, cameras, etc.) are normally based on wave scattering or absorption by macroscopic objects at remote distances; and the operations are also not specific in wave frequencies. In the past couple of years, a new paradigm of chip-scale EM spectral sensing has emerged with features complementary to the above: they utilize various modalities of interactions between EM waves with high-precision frequency control and microscopic particles (molecules, atoms, etc.) in close proximity to the chip. This progress is enabled by the recent advances of silicon devices and processes, especially the increase of circuit operation frequencies into the terahertz regime. Chip-scale sensing and metrology systems with new capabilities, higher performance and unprecedented affordability now become possible. Examples include THz gas spectroscopy sensors, on-chip “atomic-clock-grade” frequency references, room-temperature CMOS-quantum magnetometers, etc. This talk will present the basic physics of a few types of wave-matter interactions, key enabling technologies, as well as the designs and prototypes of the chip systems. We will also discuss their potential applications in bio-chemical analysis, wireless networks, positioning, navigation and timing (PNT), security and so on.
