CNS Seminar, "Ultra-miniature Lensless Computational Imagers and Sensors"
Dr. David G. Stork, Research Director of the Computational Sensing and Imaging Group, Rambus Labs
Harvard University - 24 Oxford St., Haller Hall - Cambridge, MA 02138
Abstract: We describe a new class of computational optical sensors and imagers that do not rely on traditional refractive or reflective focusing but instead on special diffractive optical elements integrated with CMOS photodiode arrays. The diffractive elements have provably optimal optical properties essential for imaging, and act as a visual chirp and preserve full Fourier image information on the photodiode arrays. Images are not captured, as in traditional imaging systems, but rather computed from raw photodiode signals. Because such imagers forgo the use of lenses, they can be made unprecedentedly small—as small as the cross-section of a human hair. Such imagers have extended depth of field, from roughly 1mm to infinity, and should find use in numerous applications, from endoscopy to infra-red and surveillance imaging and more. Furthermore, the gratings and signal processing can be tailored to specific applications from visual motion estimation to barcode reading and others.

About the Speaker: David G. Stork is Distinguished Research Scientist and Research Director of the Computational Sensing and Imaging Group at Rambus Labs. A graduate in physics from MIT and the University of Maryland, Dr. Stork has published eight books/proceedings volumes, including Pattern classification (2nd ed.) and Seeing the Light: Optics in nature, photography, color, vision and holography and has held faculty appointments in eight disciplines variously at Wellesley and Swarthmore Colleges and Clark, Boston and Stanford Universities. He holds 43 issued patents and is Fellow of both the International Association for Pattern Recognition and of SPIE.
04/23/14
10:00 am to 3:30 pm
“AFM and Raman: Collocated Imaging and TERS” hosted by Harvard University Center for Nanoscale Systems.
Please Join Bruker Nano Surfaces Division and Renishaw for a Raman-AFM Technology Presentation and Demonstration
Harvard University - 52 Oxford St., NorthWest 343 - Cambridge, MA 02138
Schedule as Follows:
10:00 am: Introduction from Bruker/Renishaw
10:15 am: Renishaw Presentation
“Renishaw Inc. will be demonstrating Advances in Raman imaging techniques, AFM/Raman and TERS will be demonstrated in a presentation by Renishaw UK’s Applications Scientist, Tim Batten. He will highlight recent work on materials and biological applications, as well as nanotechnology materials, such as graphene. As part of the presentation, see an integrated AFM/Raman system in action.”
11:15 am: Bruker Presentation
“The desire to identify materials and their properties to understand complex systems and better engineer their functions has been driving scanning probe microscopies since their inception. Both atomic force microscopy (AFM) and Raman spectroscopy are techniques used to gather information about the surface properties and chemical information of a sample. There are many reasons to combine these two technologies, and this presentation presents via example both the complementary information gained from the techniques and how a researcher having access to a combined system can benefit from the additional information available.”
12:15 pm: Lunch (food provided)
12:45 pm: Demonstration of the Renishaw inVia Reflex Raman miscroscope system
1:45 pm: Demonstration of TERS using the combined Renishaw inVia/Bruker Innova IRIS system.
3:00-3:30 pm: Closing Statements

Duties & Responsibilities

The Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS) at Harvard University seeks a talented and enthusiastic individual to assist other staff members in the nanofabrication group and provide servicing and maintaining of state-of-the-art cleanroom and scientific instrumentation.

Reporting to the Nanofabrication Manager, this person’s primary responsibilities include oversight of several technical activities in the cleanroom, such as various tool/process baseline monitoring, maintenance and development, cleanroom supply inventory control (gas, chemical, spare parts, consumables, etc..), assisting staff to achieve objectives and enhance service quality, train users on scientific apparatus and configure them for new experiments, ensure safety rules and regulations, keep accurate records and logs. With an ever increasing high volume of users, new equipment and high lab usage in the cleanroom (~ 1000 users and >10,000 hrs monthly lab usage), additional technical support and safety monitoring is required.

CNS is an open, shared-use facility that serves Harvard as well as external academic and industrial users. Collaboration with other CNS personnel to achieve objectives and enhance service quality is highly expected.
Basic Qualifications Minimum of an Associate's Degree in Science of Engineering with 3 years of experience required. Basic machining and mechanical design experience and working knowledge on electrical/electronic systems are also required.
Additional Qualifications

A Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry or Material Science with at least 2 years of work experience would be advantageous. Working knowledge and hands-on skills with various microscopes and similar scientific imaging/analysis equipment and with complex electro-mechanical vacuum systems are preferred. Laboratory experience and customer service experience are desirable. The candidate should be self-motivated with a strong desire to acquire on-the-job training, to succeed, and to develop intellectual and practical professional skills. Ability to work well in teams, to follow directives, and to adopt safe working practices is essential.

Cleanroom experience and user-facility experience are highly desirable. This position will require manual dexterity with small and large parts, and must be skilled to maintain and repair various vacuum, electronic, electrical and mechanical systems.

Physical Requirements: Must be able to work in cleanroom, chemical, and measurement laboratory environments. Will work around compressed gases, acids, solvents, vacuum pump oils, and other chemicals. Manual dexterity will be required to work on large and small assemblies. The position requires lifting of up to 50 lb on an occasional basis.


Additional Information
When applying for this position please submit your resume and cover letter in our preferred format as one combined document (resume followed by cover letter).

All formal offers will be made by FAS Human Resources
