Hybrid spin Hall nano-oscillators based on ferromagnetic metal/ferrimagnetic insulator heterostructures

Room: A204, Bldg: Osborne Center for Science and Engineering, 1420 Austin Bluffs Pkwy, Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States, 80918, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/384020

Spin-Hall nano-oscillators (SHNOs) are promising spintronic devices to realize current controlled GHz frequency signals in nanoscale devices for neuromorphic computing and creating Ising systems. However, traditional SHNOs devices based on transition metals have high auto-oscillation threshold currents as well as low quality factors and output powers. Here we demonstrate a new type of hybrid SHNO based on a permalloy (Py) ferromagnetic-metal nanowire and low-damping ferrimagnetic insulator, in the form of epitaxial lithium aluminum ferrite (LAFO) thin films. The superior characteristics of such SHNOs are associated with the excitation of larger spin-precession angles and volumes. We further find that the presence of the ferrimagnetic insulator enhances the auto-oscillation amplitude of spin-wave edge modes, consistent with our micromagnetic modeling. This hybrid SHNO expands spintronic applications, including providing new means of coupling multiple SHNOs for neuromorphic computing and advancing magnonics.

"AI-enabled Smart Grid Communications and Smart Cities ”

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/390047

In the past decades, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have enabled the modernization of the power grid and have led to many advances in smart grid technologies, as well as smart cities. Smart grid communications facilitate a large number of grid operations, including advanced metering, fault monitoring, microgrid control, transactive energy systems, and so on. In parallel with advances in smart grids, communication technologies have been continuously evolving to provide better service to mobile users and vertical industries. Recently, machine learning has shown promising performance improvements in communication networks; benefiting many verticals around smart cities. In this talk, we introduce novel AI-based tools that will allow a P2P energy trading platform, consisting of microgrids, to become a part of the future transactive energy systems. The energy trading platform relies on robust smart grid communications. We will show our recent results on low-latency communications that use reinforcement learning to support communication needs of such energy trading platforms.

GRSS Webinar: Unveiling the Potential of GNSS Transmissometry (GNSS-T) for Remote Sensing of Forest Canopy Water Content: Challenges and Pathways to 'Radio Realistic' Forest Scene Generation

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/391721

Speaker: Prof. Mehmet Kurum, The University of Georgia, USA Thursday, December 21, 2023 (https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Unveiling+the+Potential+of+GNSS+Transmissometry+%28GNSS-T%29+for+Remote+Sensing+of+Forest+Canopy+Water+C&iso=20231221T11&p1=43&ah=1) The GNSS-T method uses stationary or mobile GNSS receivers under the forest canopy, accompanied by an additional unit in the open area as reference. This webinar will provide the theoretical and experimental foundations to explain how the GNSS-T method provides information about the characteristics of Vegetation Optical Depth (VOD ) and Vegetation Water Content (VWC) measurements which could transform forest VWC monitoring studies. Co-sponsored by: CH05226 - Denver/High Plains Section Jt. Chapter, GRS Speaker(s): Prof. Mehmet Kurum, Agenda: There is significant evidence that vegetation water content, known as VWC, can serve as a useful measure of water status as it is directly linked to the moisture content of living fuel. Improved temporal and spatial quantification of VWC variations is expected to aid in the improved evaluation of how forests respond to drought, including tree mortality and wildfire risk. Direct measurement of VWC dynamics remotely can also be crucial for understanding and modeling hydrological and ecological processes. Presently, only coarse spatial resolution (25 – 50 km) vegetation optical depth (VOD) is globally observed by satellites. These observations are mainly derived from opportunistic analyses of measurements that were initially intended for other scientific purposes. In addition, validating spaceborne VOD poses a significant challenge due to lack of systematic ground-based VOD observations at the moment. Recently a new methodology called the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Transmissometry (GNSS-T) technique has gained attention to monitoring VWC directly. The method uses stationary or mobile GNSS receivers under the forest canopy, accompanied by an additional unit in the open area as reference. The logarithmic difference between the two measurements yields information on forest transmissivity (water content). This relatively new remote sensing (non-intrusive) approach could transform forest VWC monitoring studies. Its optimal interpretation, use, and relation to VWC have yet to be comprehensively explored. Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/391721

Achieving Organizational Sustainability Through Innovation and Leadership

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/396007

Abstract: True institutional sustainability means effective technology management, including finding opportunities, gaining executives’ buy-in, and moving forward with our best ideas. It is important to avoid distractions (financial concerns, internal power struggles, finding the “big idea”) so we don’t overlook opportunities around us. We should enact the leadership capable of piloting our organization to success, to ensure that our capabilities are keeping pace with market realities and emerging opportunities. To achieve the goal of business sustainability, we need to tap into the genius of each employee for new product ideas and then provide the leadership that fosters the trust and collaboration needed to bring those ideas to fruition. Learning Objectives: - Discover the three hidden barriers to sustainability that hamper organizations. - Learn four steps for activating employees to identify emergent opportunities. - Take away five principles leaders can implement to support sustainable innovation.

"Artificial Intelligence: A Cursory Look”

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/388628

Artificial intelligence as a concept has been around for a long time, but recently research and application as well as its presence in the media has risen exponentially. Less noticeable, the impact on our activities has grown just as fast. Every time we deal with commercial, financial, government or we engage in web-based activities there is a good chance that we come in contact with AI or its products. AI has developed its own language to describe the many forms it takes. Today, we will take a non-technical look at AI history, the terminology used to describe its many incarnations, the positive and negative impacts, and the concerns by industry and government with developing guardrails and processes to reap the benefits while limiting the downside.

Semiconductor Innovation for Transformative Impact

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/398898

Semiconductor technology advancements have enabled the capability and cost of computing devices to improve exponentially over time, with transformative impact - witness the rise of cloud computing and the Internet of Things, which together with advances in machine learning have ushered in the era of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Today’s leading-edge microprocessor chips comprise over 80 billion transistors. The complexity of these semiconductor devices requires sophisticated design automation tools and manufacturing facilities, which are increasingly expensive and capital intensive: a leading-edge chip fabrication plant, or “fab,” costs roughly $10 billion. As a result, close collaboration between electronic design automation (EDA) companies, fabless chip design companies, chip manufacturers, wafer fabrication equipment (WFE) companies, materials suppliers, and outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) companies is necessary to sustain the exponential pace of technology advancement. This seminar will begin by providing a high-level overview to explain why chips are considered “the new oil,” with a market projected to grow to $1T by the end of this decade. Then it will discuss challenges ahead for the industry and the need for new innovations and talent. As an example, integration of nano- electro-mechanical switches with conventional CMOS transistors to enable dramatic improvements in computational speed and energy efficiency will be described. The importance of a culture of inclusion for spurring innovation with maximum positive impact will also be discussed.

Key Findings from the IEEE-USA Consultants Fee Survey Report for Local Consultants Network Chairs

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/390924

A Consultants Committee Virtual Meeting In early 2022, the (https://ieeeusa.org/committees/aicncc/) polled local consultant network chairs to find out the status of their local groups. What we learned is that many local networks were having trouble restarting activities after having such a long layoff from in-person meetings. We also learned that many chairs have questions about activities of the IEEE-USA Consultants Committee. On January 25 at 12:00pm-1:00pm EST, the IEEE-USA Consultants Committee is again sponsoring a virtual workshop for local consultant network chairs. We have asked Dr. Johannes Schaefer, Senior Manager with IEEE Strategic Research and author of the (https://ieeeusa.org/product/ieee-usa-consultants-fee-survey-report-2023-edition/) to give a presentation on key findings from the report. Dr. Schaefer will be joined by members of IEEE-USA Consultants Committee to add their commentary about the impact on independent consultants from findings of the survey. The committee also wants this workshop to be an interactive discussion with network chairs regarding the report. After the presentation, there will be a Q/A with members of the IEEE-USA Consultants Committee. IEEE-USA Consultants Committee members want to address any questions about the committee's activities that local chairs may have. The speaker will address any additional questions chairs may have regarding the presentation. So, we invite all Chairs, Vice Chairs and other network officers, as well as potential future Board members, to attend this online event. This meeting will be recorded to be used as an on Demand resource. Speaker(s): Johannes Schaefer, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/390924
