Phase retrieval by non-convex optimization: theory and algorithms: NCD Seminar

Seminar | September 29 | 3-4 p.m. | 521 Cory Hall

Mahdi Soltanolkotabi, EECS, UC Berkeley

Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

In this talk we consider the problem of recovering the seemingly hidden phase of an object from intensity-only measurements, a problem which naturally appears in X-ray crystallography, speech analysis and related disciplines. We formulate the problem as a non-convex quadratic program whose global optimum recovers the phase information exactly from a near minimal number of......   More >

Engineering Synergy: Energy and Mass Transport in Hybrid Nanomaterials: Nano Seminar Series

Seminar | October 3 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building

Dr. Jeff Urban, LBNL, Molecular Foundry

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

The interface between hard and soft condensed matter presents new and compelling research opportunities in the transport of energy and mass due to the dramatic contrasts in bond strength, chemical interactions, and transport modalities between these constituents. Often, however, when inorganic and organic materials are blended into composites, performance suffers and new failure modes appear.......   More >
