New Visiting Lecturers

Over the past few months, SPIE Student Services has added several new faces to the Visiting Lecturer directory. Take some time and get familiar with the newest volunteers.

Douglas E. Adams
Sense, Predict, & Remediate - The Science and Application of Health Monitoring in Engineered Systems

Dr. Douglas Adams is a University Faculty Scholar and Director of the Purdue Center for Systems Integrity, which focuses on engineering research and development in structural health monitoring and damage prognosis for automotive & aerospace systems. He has graduated 18 MS/PhD students, published more than 150 papers, and delivered over 60 invited presentations worldwide including several keynote addresses.

Chantal Andraud
Molecular design for multiphoton absorption: from the visible to telecommunications wavelengths

Chantal Andraud leads the group “Chemistry for Optics” in ENS-Lyon. In the group, we design molecules (organic and coordination complexes of transition metals and lanthanides) presenting a high response in optics or nonlinear optics. In this last field, targeted applications are electro-optic modulation and different two-photon absorption related applications from the visible to the IR (bio-imaging, 3D photopolymerisation, optical limiting in the visible and near IR and at telecommunication wavelengths, photodynamic therapy).

Xiaoyi Bao
Optical Fibers as Sensors: From Structural to Security Monitoring

Dr. Xiaoyi Bao is a Canada Research Chair professor in Fibre Optics and Photonics at the Physics Department, University of Ottawa. Her research interests include: development and applications of distributed fiber sensors in civil structural health-monitoring, dynamic polarization mode dispersion monitoring in aerial, buried and submarine fibers, impairments in high-speed communication systems, and mode locked laser developments.

Dieter Bäuerle
Laser Processing and Chemistry: Applications in Nanopatterning, Material Synthesis, and Biotechnology

In 1969, He received his Ph.D. in Physics from University of Stuttgart, Germany (Infrared spectroscopy; defects in ionic crystals). He is a member of various different evaluation committees such as CNRS-URA 445 (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). He has various different awards such as Max-Kade award, 1969; Adolf-Schärf Award for science, 1984; Christian-Doppler Award, 1991. Author and co-author of more than 460 publications in scientific journals, 40 patents, and 12 books.

Federico Carpi
Dielectric elastomer actuators: current achievements and challenges
Biomedical applications of electroactive polymer actuators
Magnetic robotic manoeuvring of gastrointestinal video capsules

Federico Carpi was born in Italy in 1975. He received from the University of Pisa the degree in Electronic Engineering, the Ph.D. degree in Bioengineering and a second degree in Biomedical Engineering. His main research activities deal with electroactive polymer based materials and devices for biomedical engineering and robotics.

Dahv Kliner
Power Scaling of Rare-Earth-Doped Fiber Lasers
Rare-Earth-Doped Fiber Sources for Spectroscopic Trace-Gas Detection

Dahv Kliner obtained a Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 1991 from Stanford University, where he studied the quantum-state-resolved dynamics of gas-phase chemical reactions. He performed postdoctoral research in ultrafast spectroscopy at the University of Minnesota and in atmospheric chemistry at Harvard University. He was at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, CA, from 1997 until 2008, where he led Sandia’s fiber-laser program.

Rongguang Liang
Optical design for biomedical imaging

Rongguang Liang received a Ph.D. in Optical Sciences from College of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona. In 2001, he joined Research & Development Laboratories, Eastman Kodak Company, where he developed imaging technologies for biomedical imaging, display, digital imaging, and printing. Currently he is a Senior principal research scientist with Research and Innovation Laboratories, Carestream Health Inc (former Health Group of Eastman Kodak Company).
