When light is squeezed down to subwavelength dimensions, the local symmetries of nanophotonic structures come to the fore and play a decisive role. Anisotropy enables new interesting regimes of operation and novel functionality, including hyperbolic modes and topological transitions, novel physics of moiré patterns, spin-orbit locking, enhanced valley polarization and chirality. The rotation and translation symmetries of optical structures enable nonradiative and nonscattering modes with unboundedly large radiative Q-factor, which can be controlled by symmetry breaking. The luck of time-reversal symmetry enables nonreciprocity and isolating devices in classical and quantum realms. In this talk, I will discuss how nanophotonics with broken symmetries heralds a new era of light and quantum technologies.

Data communication is one of the most important aspects of establishing an intelligent network. Not only in Smart Grid infrastructure, firewalls, and gateways, but also in network status monitoring, reliable data communication enables successful network operation. Energy sector is an attractive target for cyber attackers for its perceived high vulnerability, high impact outcome. In this talk, I will discuss the importance of security in Smart Grid Cyber-physical Systems and their evolution.

Most industry careers in antenna engineering start with a researcher position and then develop into a managerial role. Initial research work could start with a master’s/doctoral degree thesis, followed by a design/application engineering job in industry. Success in a research capacity is expected to lead to a managerial role. In this talk, I examine my own career path, which took me from research, to entrepreneurial, and to management positions. My research career began when I was a doctoral student in India and continued with postdoctoral fellowships in Canada and the United States. Then, I ended up leading two start-up companies, one of which was acquired by a larger multinational company, where I am currently leading business development activities in the Americas. While most of my career was not planned, my experience could probably help those starting their work in industry to plan theirs. This talk will be based on the article published in April 2021 issue of IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine (

Heterogeneous Integration (HI) is seen as a critical enabler for the progress of computing and communications in a wide variety of application environments including (but not limited to) HPC, IoT, Automotive, Networking, Medical, Aerospace etc. This talk will describe the value of packaging as an HI platform in the context of the HI Roadmap, an effort co-sponsored by societies within IEEE and ASME and by SEMI. Different packaging architectures will be compared primarily on the basis of their physical interconnect capabilities. Key features in leading edge 2D and 3D technologies, such as EMIB, Silicon Interposer, Foveros and Co-EMIB will be described and a roadmap for their evolution will be presented. Challenges and opportunities in developing robust advanced package architectures will be discussed. The talk will conclude with a broader and more open ended discussion on how technical and personal collaborations can strengthen and drive the progress of HI.

Meeting will be recorded.
