Faculty members are encouraged to attend the next President's Colloquia presentation, set for April 24. Hosted by President Mitch Daniels, the colloquia provide opportunities to hear faculty experts discuss their research in presentations specifically for non-experts.

The spring 2018 colloquia are scheduled for 4-6 p.m. at Westwood. To register or for more information, visit the President's Colloquia webpage.

April 24 (T)

Alexandra Boltasseva, professor of electrical and computer engineering, on "Catching Light Rays: Making Light Work at the Nanoscale for Faster Communication, Denser Data Storage, Energy and Medical Applications"

Optics has revolutionized how we communicate, harvest energy, do computation and diagnose illness. Novel optical technologies fueled by nanophotonics "squeeze" electromagnetic radiation into tiny areas much smaller than the wavelength of light. Explore "flatland" optics, on-chip nanocircuitry, medical diagnostics, and therapy and green energy with nanophotonics.

Faculty will need to use State Street or Third Street to travel to Westwood. Stadium Avenue between McCormick Road and the Tarkington access road is closed to traffic.
