CHTM Spotlight:
  • Congratulations to Prof. Arash Mafi, whose work on using disordered fibers to transmit images has been selected by Physics World as one of their Top 10 Breakthroughs of 2014. Prof. Mafi and his colleages showed that their disordered fibers transmitted images with quality comparable to or better than commercially available multicore fibers. Their research was also published in Nature Communications.
  • CHTM has a new tool for nanodevice Fabrication A Karl Süss mask aligner is now installed in the CHTM cleanroom. The $400k instrument introduces mask align and expose capability plus nanoimprint lithography for fabricating nanometer scale features.
  • Patent 8,895,321 B2 (Nov 25, 2014) has been issued for Integrated Affinity Microcolumns and Affinity Capillary Electrophoresis.
  • Congratulations to Prof. Marek Osinski, who has been elevated to the grade of IEEE Fellow (the highest grade in IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). His citation reads "for contributions to analysis of optoelectronic materials and devices."
CHTM Calendar:
  • There will be a special OSE Seminar on Thursday Dec 11, at 11am in CHTM room 101. Dr. Matthieu Baudelet of Laser & Plasma Laboratory, Townes Laser Institute, CREOL (The College of Optics and Photonics, University of Central Florida) will give a talk entitled Controlling laser filamentation for better stand-off sensing performances.
