Advances in Mueller Matrix Polarimetry

Applications of Mueller Matrix imaging and sensing are reaching the preclinical setting. Parameters obtained through the Mueller Matrix decomposition have shown relevant correlation to pathological conditions such as cervical cancer, preterm labor, and glaucoma to name a few. These promising clinical research directions will require better standardization of the specific optical modalities as well as better understanding of the Mueller Matrix origin in biomedical media. In this talk I will introduce some computational and experimental efforts directed at quantifying the diagnostic relevant Mueller Matrix parameters originating from biological media.

APS TV 2018 | JILA: An Amazing Place to Work Features STROBE Science & Technology Center

JILA is a unique research and training partnership between the University of Colorado and the National Institute of Standards & Technology. At JILA, scientists develop new research and measurement technologies that broadly advance science and the NIST measurement mission. To date, JILA scientists have been awarded three Physics Nobel Prizes. JILA is headquarters for two National Science Foundation Centers – the STROBE Science & Technology Center and the Physics Frontier Center. JILA also trains young innovators who become leaders in industry, academia, and government labs. And after traveling to the many laboratories housed at JILA, APS TV discovers that collaboration amongst its researchers is one of its greatest strengths.

YouTube: 2018 CO-LABS Governor Awards for High Impact Research Event

Brilliant discoveries from the realms of clean energy chemistry, profound advances in disease diagnosis, astounding fundamental atomic physics shaping global nanotechnology and surprising results of “everyday” consumer activities affecting atmospheric pollution the CO-LABS 10th Anniversary Awards event was another fantastic celebration of scientific discovery! This premier scientific research recognition event in Colorado included 200 researchers, entrepreneurs, business leaders and government officials as we celebrated the exceptional and groundbreaking work of scientists and engineers from Colorado’s federally-funded research labs and institutes.

YouTube: 2018 Governor Awards for High Impact Research Winner

Friday, October 5, 2018 – Last night CO-LABS presented JILA’s ultrafast imaging team, led by Fellows Margaret Murnane and Henry Kapteyn, the 2018 Governor’s Award for High-Impact Research.

Murnane and Kapteyn were honored for their work in revolutionizing ultrafast and nanoscale imaging through the research and development of tabletop x-ray sources. These advancements enable real-time imaging of the structure, chemistry, and dynamics of materials at the level of small collections of atoms. The applications range from improving semiconductor devices and magnetic storage to understanding the fundamental physics and chemistry of complex materials. By designing, developing, and eventually enabling the availability of this technology through KM-Labs, Murnane and Kapteyn have enabled many curious researchers to further their discoveries.

Project Management for Scientists: Project Planning

Being a successful scientist requires planning and managing complex team projects that span multiple years. This two-part, interactive workshop will give you the tools and insights necessary for you to navigate this type of project management. By structuring the workshop around an example research project, attendees will directly see how specific tools and strategies can be applied to their current and future work. The first workshop session will focus on project planning, and the second session will focus on project monitoring and operation. To get the full project management landscape, it is highly encouraged for you to attend both sessions. The second session will be Monday, April 22, 2019.
