AIM Summer Academy 2019

Reading time ( words)

The AIM Photonics Academy—the educational initiative of the AIM Photonics Institute—will be holding a one-week intensive program on integrated photonics, including:

Fundamentals track: a crash course on state-of-the-art devices, process flow, fabless photonics circuit design, design for manufacturing, application systems, and chip packaging and test.

Applied track: practice workshops with leading commercial software tools for modeling, simulation, layout and error check of photonics integrated circuits (PICs); short courses in application systems, and chip packaging and test.

Student teams: work on a conceptual study of a PIC solution for an application-specific system.

Education track: includes a roster of instructors from MIT, RIT, University of Rochester, Dartmouth College, Columbia University, University of Delaware, Finisar, Synopsys, Lumerical, and Mentor.

The AIM Summer Academy 2019 will be held from July 22–26 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) campus.

A limited number of academic discounts are available upon request.

Lab Tests Armored Vehicles with Auto Industry 'Dummies'

In an unassuming warehouse on Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland sit nearly 50 men in uniform, waiting for their mission during an upcoming test event. They're sporting Army Combat Uniforms, standard-issue boots, a crane hook protruding from their heads, and a plethora of color-coded wires spilling out the back of their necks.

FLA Program Takes Flight

They may not have zoomed flawlessly around obstacles like the Millennium Falcon did as it careened through the hull of a crashed Star Destroyer in Star Wars VII. But the sensor-loaded quadcopters that recently got tested in a cluttered hangar in Massachusetts did manage to edge their way around obstacles and achieve their target speeds of 20 meters per second.

Mr. Laminate Tells All: Who Would Like a Mil-Spec Audit?

I remember when IPC-4101 was completed and released in December 1997 and the question came up “should IPC create a policeman program to enforce it?” To a person that helped create IPC-4101, absolutely no one wanted such an audit program ever again. Including me and the IPC staff liaisons. Maybe we should have rethought that position.
