The prediction of interactions between nonlinear laser beams is a longstanding open problem. A traditional assumption is that these interactions are deterministic. We have shown, however, that in the nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLS) model of laser propagation, beams lose their initial phase information in the presence of input noise. Thus, the interactions between beams become unpredictable... More >

Angelo Mao, Wyss Technology Fellow and postdoctoral associate at the Wyss Institute at Harvard Medical School
Tunable biomaterials underlie numerous approaches for therapy, diagnostics, and basic biological research. Developing methods to shape materials with appropriate properties is needed for successful deployment of material-based strategies. In this seminar, I will highlight concepts for engineering material properties that leverage microfluidic technologies and synthetic biology, respectively. I... More >

What drives the functional organization of the visual system? All proposals balance the causal roles of two pressures: innately specified cortical patterning mechanisms, establishing large-scale network architecture, and self-organizing mechanisms driven by the statistics of natural experience, effecting local organization. In part 1, I will characterize the functional organization of... More >
