Leveraging on the unique solar light absorption behavior, chemical stability, and piezoelectric properties, nanostructured group-III-nitrides were utilized for implementing various renewable energy harvesting and conversion applications. By using different dimensional nanostructures, especially nanowires, and nanoporous membranes, this dissertation explored the practical applications in photocatalytic nitrogen reduction reaction, photocatalytic wastewater remediation, and flexible self-powered piezoelectric sensing.

In this talk we first provide an introduction to point processes, which are stochastic models for the occurrence of events in space and time. We then discuss the application of point processes to investigate the relationship between law enforcement drug seizures and accidental overdoses in Indianapolis. We will also discuss results from a field-experiment in Indianapolis where point process based harm indices were used to inform the distribution of addiction treatment information.

Machine Learning (ML) tools have recently been adopted for a wide range of automated operations in optical networking, moving fundamental steps towards the paradigm of zero-touch infrastructures. One example of such tasks is estimating the Quality of transmission of a lightpath prior to its establishment, which is particularly challenging due to the non-linear characteristics of signal propagation in optical fibers and to the often-incomplete knowledge of equipment parameters. This talk provides an overview of the contribution of my research team in the field of ML-based lightpath QoT estimation, including transfer learning approaches for inter-domain model adaptation, active learning for model building with small-sized training dataset, quantification of prediction uncertainty, and adoption of Explainable AI framework to expose the internal decisional mechanisms of trained models.

Neuromorphic computing has emerged as a new and promising computing principle that emulates how human brains process information. The underlying spiking neural networks (SNNs) are well-known for having higher energy efficiency than artificial neural networks (ANNs). Neuromorphic systems enable highly parallel computation and reduce memory bandwidth limitations, making hardware performance scalable and sustainable given the ever-increasing complexities of artificial intelligence (AI). Inefficiency in the design of a neuromorphic system generally originates from redundant parameters, nonoptimized models, a lack of computing parallelism, and inefficient training algorithms. This dissertation aims to address these problems and propose effective solutions.

The role of Internet and Communication Technology (ICT) in bringing about a revolution in almost all aspects of human life needs no introduction. As the standardization of the fifth generation (5G) of wireless communication systems (WCSs) has been completed, 6G is expected to be the next focus in wireless communication and networking and aim to provide new superior communication services to meet the future hyper-connectivity demands in the 2030s. With this background, this Summit aims to go over the recently proposed solutions not only to connect the unconnected/under-connected but also to super-connect the connected.

Free-space optical communication (FSO) has been proposed as an attractive alternative to radio frequency communication in the sense that it provides wide bandwidth and high capacity without the requirement of a license. However, the scalability of the FSO link is limited by pointing errors, atmospheric turbulence, and loss. Especially, when it comes to the FSO link between moving platforms, it is imperative works to analyze the statistical channel model considering accurate pointing errors and atmospheric turbulence at the same time. In this paper, we analyze the performance of FSO links over various atmospheric situations with pointing errors.

Satellite communication (SatCom) is an essential component of next-generation wireless communications. The existing terrestrial network will be overwhelmed due to the rapid growth of demand for data and serving remote areas by using only terrestrial networks is demanding. In addition, terrestrial communications are susceptible to natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods. In order to overcome these disadvantages of the terrestrial communication systems, SatCom systems are being deployed and covering remote or sparsely populated areas. However, research on SatCom is still not enough and it has not been studied as much as on terrestrial communication.

In this presentation, we will review past, present, and future eras of quantum computing - such as Near Intermediate Scale Quantum (NISQ) and Utility Scale Quantum (USQ) eras – and cover their respective overarching aspirations and limitations. Once properly situated, we can identify the different roles that academic and industrial players are taking to drive this emerging technology and circumvent current systems' limitations.

In this thesis, we introduce a novel concept of metasurface optical accelerators for machine learning with the corresponding end-to-end optimization framework that is robust to fabrication intolerance and can simultaneously optimize in tens of millions of degrees of freedom. The core of this technology is universal approximators, a single surface of optical nanoresonators mathematically equivalent to a single layer of an artificial neural network (ANN).

A multi-agent system consists of individual agents sharing information and coordinating for collective decision making. The study of multi-agent decision making has important implications in conceiving networked engineering systems - a team of mobile robots or a fleet of drones - that can effectively coordinate to carry out assigned missions. Modeling such system as feedback interconnections of many smaller units allows us to examine its long-term behavior using analytical tools from feedback control theory, such as Lyapunov stability and bifurcation analysis. In this presentation, we discuss how such tools can be used to predict asymptotic behavior of the agents' decision making process and also to design computational models of the decision making process.

In this talk, I will present a special variational principle that we revived from the history of analytical mechanics: Hertz’ principle of least curvature. Using this principle, we developed a general (dynamical) closure condition that is, unlike the Kutta condition, derived from first principles. In contrast to the classical theory, the proposed variational theory is not confined to sharp-edged airfoils, i.e., it allows, for the first time, theoretical computation of lift over arbitrarily smooth shapes, thereby generalizing the century-old lift theory of Kutta and Zhukovsky. Moreover, the new variational condition reduces to the Kutta condition in the special case of a sharp-edged airfoil, which challenges the widely accepted concept regarding the viscous nature of the Kutta condition.  We also generalized this variational principle to Navier-Stokes’, thereby discovering the fundamental quantity that Nature minimizes in every incompressible flow.
