Backstage preparation for power conversion research

Dr. Ordonez's research program employs high performance power conversion systems to test and validate new technology. The Alpha Power Laboratory is continuously developing and evolving these high-end power platforms. Daniel Spier is an Undergraduate Student working closely to Matias Anun (Research Assistant) on the preliminary work to assemble medium-level power converters with reflow soldering techniques. Reflow replaces hand soldering and improves the reliability of the experimental research platforms.

Capstone Project Advances Silicon Photonics Simulation

Designing and fabricating computer chips takes a lot of time and money. Chip designers alleviate as much of this expense as they can by using modeling tools to ensure the chips that reach the fabrication and testing phase have a high likelihood of success. Simulation enables designers to model device operations before sending their designs to fabrication. The capstone team of Phoung Tran, Trammy Nguyen and Stephen Liang developed a software tool to make the modeling of photonic circuits easier, a huge advantage in a young and vital industry.

Parisa Behnamfar wins the Killam Graduate Teaching Assistant Prize

One aspect of being a teaching assistant that Parisa Behnamfar really enjoys is the active teaching and learning that happens during lab supervision hours. “Experimental setups usually bring up challenges, contradictions, discussions and eventually solutions. During the labs, I share my knowledge with passion which also enhance my confidence about the concepts that I am teaching."
