Giving to CREOL CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics

Seminar: "Fill the Needs of Wideband Dynamic Microwave System: From Photonics to Neuromophic" by Dr. Mable Fok

Thursday, November 5, 2015 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
CREOL Room 103

Celebrating the International Year of Light 2015


Microwave system is an essential element in commercial, civilian, federal, and defense marketplace. It governs a variety of systems including wireless communications, satellite communications, sensor networks, instrumentation, and warfare systems. The demand of anywhere anytime high-quality service imposes challenges to existing microwave processing systems, due to the tight requirement on mobility, dynamic, adaptation, bandwidth, and operational frequency. Our research focuses on the use of both photonics techniques and neuromorphic algorithms for the development of enabling technologies for wideband, dynamic and adaptive microwave systems. During this seminar, Dr. Fok will discuss the technologies they developed for dynamic multiband communications, spectral-coexist full-duplex system for air-vehicle, and jamming avoidance in uncoordinated communications.


Dr. Mable Fok received her B.S., MS, and Ph.D from the Chinese University of Hong Kong studying photonic signal processing for high-capacity optical communications. She finished her postdoctoral training at Princeton University in network security and neuromorphic processing prior to joining University of Georgia as an Assistant Professor of the College of Engineering. Her research lab – WAVE Lab, aims to bring fiber optics and photonics techniques to inter-disciplinary areas, by understanding, designing, building a wide range of photonics based systems. Her work has been funded by National Science foundation, UGA Office of the Vice President for Research, and Oak Ridge Associated Universities. Dr. Fok is the recipient of the Excellence in Research Faculty Award, Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award, and IEEE Photonics Society Graduate Student Fellowship.
