Analog Photonic Systems: Features & Techniques to Optimize Performance

Online

by Ed Ackerman, Photonic Systems Inc., USA Both the scientific and the defense communities wish to receive and process information occupying ever-wider portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. This can often create an analog-to-digital conversion “bottleneck”. Analog photonic channelization, linearization, and frequency conversion systems can be designed to alleviate this bottleneck. This presentation will highlight the advantages and other features of analog photonic systems (including some specific systems that the author has constructed and tested) and will review and explain multiple techniques for optimizing their performance.

Effective Science Communication

Online

In this digital era, merely having the ability to research and discovering is not enough, if not coupled with effective communication skills. Even the brilliant research is wasted if no one knows it has been done or if the target audience is unable to understand it. Moreover, one of the top sought skills in a resume is effective communication skills. Join us for an online session on Wednesday, 16th September 2020 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. where we will have Dr. Jenny Martin who will provide advice on effective communication for researchers. She will share some specific tips on writing and speaking about research for non-scientific audiences and how to utilise social media effectively.

Moving to a two-sided energy market

Online

Supply and demand are becoming increasingly variable and uncertain, consumers are increasingly generators as well as consumers of electricity and responsive to price or other market signals. This, alongside the ever-increasing data and information, flows that come with digitalisation, presents an opportunity to explore a fit-for-purpose market framework for the national electricity market (NEM). The biggest opportunity from this energy transition is the development of a two-sided market.
