Approximate solvers and statistical optics for efficient simulation and optimization in photonics

Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/325079

Join the IEEE Montréal Section and its' IEEE Photonics Society Chapter for a technical talk by Dr. Raphaël Pestourie, PhD . In photonics, fabrication technologies now enable us to build devices, e.g. metasurfaces, that have aperiodic patterns at the scale of the wavelength and diameters of thousands of wavelengths, which present an unprecedented opportunity to shape light with complex objectives. However, these devices are very challenging to simulate and even harder to optimize. This talk will present ways to harness the full computational power of modern large-scale optimization in order to design metasurfaces by exploiting domain-decomposition approximations and surrogate models. We will also present recent experimental results of large-area lenses that are achromatic for several wavelengths across the visible. Finally, we will present an efficient way to simulate and optimize collimators and concentrators for incoherent light using reciprocal simulations.

Join the celebration around the world! Every year, IEEE members and none-members from all IEEE Sections, Student Branches, Affinity groups, and Society Chapters join hands to celebrate IEEE Day. Events happen both virtually and in person. IEEE Day celebrates the first time in history when engineers worldwide gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. This year, IEEE Day 2022 Celebration is in-person! After almost two years of holding the IEEE Day celebration virtual, we are pleased to announce that this year we will hold this event in person and we are very excited to meet our volunteers in the Montreal section. More info will be added soon yet you can reserve your seat right now! 1450 Guy St, Montreal, Quebec , MB 9th Floor, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, H3H 0A1

LATex workshop

Bldg: Pavillon Lassonde, Polytechnique Montreal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

LaTeX is a typesetting program that is used primarily by mathematicians and other academics to help us typeset mathematical notation easily and legibly and using markup-tagging conventions, writers can style the text throughout a document by defining the general structure of the document. This workshop could be of interest to students who want to learn about LaTeX templates to create impressive documents for their master's or Ph.D. thesis. Furthermore, academics, students, and researchers seeking to create professional-looking documents, papers, presentations, and posters may benefit from this workshop. The main goal of this talk is to get beginners to the place where they can produce basic documents with the use of LaTeX, so we will intentionally be leaving aside some of the more technical options that might be too much for those who are just starting off. As part of our workshop, we will be giving a comprehensive overview of the documentation, including document spacing and formatting guidelines and how to cite other papers and write a bibliography. In addition, we learn how to include figures, plots, and tables in LaTeX documents. The workshop will continue with a discussion of how to handle LaTeX errors. To conclude, we will use LaTeX to compose our first document. What will you discover? - How to create a document in LaTeX - Document spacing and formatting principles - How to cite other papers and build a bibliography - How to include figures, plots, and tables in a LaTeX document - How to include and reference mathematics and algorithms in LaTeX - Handling LaTeX Errors Who should attend this workshop? - Students are interested in learning about Latex templates to create impressive documents for their master’s or Ph.D. thesis. - Academics, students, and researchers looking to create professional-looking documents, papers, presentations, and posters. - Anyone who had heard about LaTeX but has avoided learning about it Speaker(s): Aynour Khosravi , Bldg: Pavillon Lassonde, Polytechnique Montreal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
