Let's be Flexible: Soft Haptics and Soft Robotics

Seminar | June 15 | 1-2 p.m. | 540AB Cory Hall

 Allison Okamura, Stanford University

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

While traditional robotic manipulators are constructed from rigid links and localized joints, a new generation of robotic devices are soft, using flexible, deformable materials. In this talk, I will describe several new systems that leverage softness to achieve novel shape control, provide a compliant interface to the human body, and access hard-to-reach locations...   More >

Special Seminar: Magnetic Memories with Topological Insulator and Compensated Ferrimagnet

Seminar | June 15 | 1-2 p.m. | Cory Hall, 521 Hogan Room

 Luqiao Liu, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

New materials and physics mechanisms are required to further lower down the power consumption and increase the switching speed of magnetic memory devices. In this talk, I will focus on two novel material systems which can provide new opportunities for magnetic switching. First of all, I will discuss our recent study on compensated ferrimagnetic alloys which have antiferromagnetically coupled...   More >

Dig, Sift, Soak: Clay as a Pigment with Mutual Stores

Workshop | June 15 | 6 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Learn about clay—both as a flexible artistic medium and as a resource that surrounds us in the local landscape—in this workshop with the Mutual Stores artist collective.
