Quick Intro to Python and its many applications

Bldg: Virtual Webex meeting, Webex, online, Virtual City, Michigan, United States, 48309-4479, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/280789

Python has become wildly popular for a variety of reasons. Python is an open-source (free) programming language that is used in web programming, data science, artificial intelligence, and many scientific applications. Learning Python allows the programmer to focus on solving problems, rather than focusing on syntax. Its relative size and simplified syntax give it an edge over languages like Java and C++, yet the abundance of libraries gives it the power needed to accomplish great things.

Next Generation Near Field Sub 10nm Optical Sensing

Miami, Florida, United States, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/281882

Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) has become one of the most crucial and powerful techniques to characterize the chemical, physical, and biochemical properties of materials with nanometer-scale resolution in real-time. A key element for any NSOM systems that combine optical spectroscopy with scanning probe microscopy is the actual probe itself. An ideal NSOM probe provides a strong local electromagnetic field enhancement, efficient far-field to near- field coupling, nanoscale spatial resolution, background-free operation, and broadband photon-plasmon coupling to enable high spatial and temporal resolution. One of the most exciting optical probe architectures based on an optical transformer, “campanile,” was recently developed and has been successfully used for multidimensional spectroscopic imaging of nanostructures with nanoscale resolution, providing insights into novel optoelectronic process1. However, making such probes requires both the expertise and the facility, and reproducibility is a significant issue. The economic production of reasonable volumes of such probes is not possible. There is a critical need for the development of optical tip technology to yield high-performance and reliable near-field probes and to become available to the broader user community. The realization of such probes would impact nanoscale research at the same level that atomic force microscopes did when paving the way to modern nanoscale science. We present a wafer-scale realization of Campanile near-field scanning optical probes fabricated on an AFM platform. Figure 1 illustrates a 2D sketch and a scanning electron micrograph (SEM) image of an optical transformer on a cantilever. The figure shows the Boron Nitride flake sample and its topographical image taken by the Campanile AFM probe. Optical measurement results show a promising sign of probes’ functionality with a strong polarization dependence response, which is a tell-a-tale sing of a campanile. This work paves the way for low cost and volume manufacturing of near-field probes suitable for high-resolution hyperspectral imaging.

STIR SHAKEN – Framework for mitigating illegal caller ID spoofing

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/281409

Illegal Caller ID spoofing is a common tactic utilized by Robocallers. To combat this fraud, the telecommunications industry, led by ATIS and the SIP Forum, developed the SHAKEN (Secure Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) framework, based on IETF STIR (Secure Telephony Identity Revisited) standards. This webinar provides an overview of STIR/SHAKEN, including why it was developed, how it works, how voice service providers utilize STIR/SHAKEN in Robocall mitigation and future capability enhancements to the STIR/SHAKEN ecosystem.
