Seminars in 2011

Special Seminar:

Time: 10:00 am to 11:30 am
Place: VBL 3F Seminar room, Toyohashi Tech.
Title:

'Phase Engineered Interference Lithography for Complex Photonic Structure Fabrication'

'High Density Holographic Data Storage and Search'

Outline

1. Optical interference and holography has long been a powerful tool in many areas of optics such as precision measurement, and information processing/storage etc. Recently researchers have found a great potential in two and multiple beam interference techniques in forming 2-D and 3-D volumetric structures in photosensitive materials. Even though, the fabrication of photonic structures on relevant length scales (i.e., nanometer, sub micrometer, and micrometer) can be achieved by means of various techniques such as electron or ion beam writing, deposition methods and self assembly, the prime advantage of interference lithography is, to fabricate large area defect-free nano-photonic structures both rapidly and cheaply. The presentation gives an overview of the technique of holographic lithography for photonic structure fabrication, and describes a novel reconfigurable phase engineering based fabrication technique which is least complex and provide more flexibility compared to existing techniques at the same time this technique is capable of fabrication highly complex photonic structures.

2. A volume holographic data storage system (VHDS) employs holographic principles for the storage and retrieval of huge amounts of data at fast parallel transfer rates. It provides high storage densities and fast data transfer rates with extremely short random access times. A holographic storage disk can support a transfer rates in Gb per second in comparison to current technology's few Mb per second. These features have been achieved by the page-oriented storage principle and the multiplexing of a large number of such data pages in a single location. In addition to conventional address-based read-out, VHDS offers the potential for simultaneous search of an entire database by performing multiple optical correlations between the stored data pages and a search argument. Such an added feature of content-addressable searching is always beneficial considering its huge storage density. Since a holographic search engine performs an entire database search with a single optical exposure, it can potentially search massive databases orders of magnitude faster than conventional alternatives.

Lunch Colloquia in 2011

13th Lunch Colloquium (3rd of the Second Cycle of Lunch Colloquia)
Date: 24th November 2011
Time: 0:15p.m. to 1:00p.m.
Place: Hibari-Lounge, Toyohashi Tech.
Title:

Dichromatic macaque monkey.

Outline:

Dichromacy (or sometime called "color-blind"), whose one type of photoreceptors is absent, has played an important role in our understanding of the color vision. Here I introduce the project searching for dichromatic macaque monkey. And we finally have found them in Indonesia. With behavioral experiments performed in Japan, I will discuss the future impact of these genetic resources.

12th Lunch Colloquium (2nd of the Second Cycle of Lunch Colloquia)
Date: 27th October 2011
Time: 0:15p.m. to 1:00p.m.
Place: Hibari-Lounge, Toyohashi Tech.
Title:

The researches on "smell" as a chemical substance.

And latest findings.

Outline:

Clarification of a whole picture of smell mechanisms is still unrealized.
However, since especially the 2004 Nobel Prize, the nowledge of olfactory sense has been accumulated over time from the molecular biology and biochemistry aspects.
Recently, some researchers reported some curious topics concerning smell.
In this talk, I will touch on such topics and introduce some chemical sensing method of recent date.
