Date Description
Aug 29 12:00 pm Female Entrepreneursip Success Secrets Student Union (STUN)
When Beyonce asked "who runs the world?" the answer of "girls" was obvious but there are specific building blocks to being a successful female entrepreneur that you just can't ignore. This workshop will be led by successful female entrepreneur Carol Ann Dykes and will be focused showing female students how to build the skill-sets, esteem, and business-acumen alongside their venture or career. Carol Ann Dykes is Central Florida's Research Parkway's Site Manager of the UCF Business Incubator and a member of East Orlando's Chamber of Commerce. This event is completely free but it is a part of the "Ladies Rock The Launchpad" event series and is open to only to female students at UCF. Ladies Rock The Launchpad is a weekly event series where female entrepreneurs, CEO's, experts and taste-makers visit UCF to inspire female students to pursue their dreams, passions, ventures and careers. -- Though all students are welcome seating is limited to the first 40. Students are encouraged to show up early to ensure they receive a seat. This free event is hosted by the Blackstone LaunchPad located on the first floor of the student union. The Blackstone LaunchPad is UCF's official startup center providing free coaching, resources and events for students.

Aug 29 04:30 pm Octave-wide frequency combs in the mid-infrared and their applications for sensing molecules Physical Sciences (PS)
Optical frequency combs produced by ultrafast mode-locked lasers have revolutionized precision spectroscopy and time metrology, culminating in the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics. I will present a new technique for extending frequency combs to the highly desirable yet difficult-to-achieve mid-infrared range - the region of fundamental molecular fingerprints. The technique is based on subharmonic optical parametric oscillation (OPO) that can be considered as a reverse of second harmonic generation. Using ultrafast erbium or thulium fiber lasers as a pump, we produce frequency combs that can be more than octave wide, e.g. span from 2.5 to 6 µm without gaps.  I will talk about coherent properties of the generated mid-IR combs, as well as their applications including trace molecular detection via absorption spectroscopy. Working in the Fourier domain allows taking advantage of massive parallelism of spectral measurements (thanks to the broad spectrum), as well as very high speed of data acquisition (thanks to the coherent nature of the frequency combs), up to 1M spectral points in a fraction of a second.
Aug 29 04:30 pm Collegiate Cyber Defense Club - First Meeting Engineering II (ENG2)
Hack@UCF - or the Collegiate Cyber Defense Club at UCF - is a club that strives to foster a generation aware of information security. This entails physical security (doors, cameras) and computer security (phones, cars, servers, and PCs), and our club is about both. Join us this Friday for our first meeting as we introduce the registered student organization Hack@UCF, the two security competition teams in the club, upcoming events, and a taste of the different topics we'll be covering this year! Our meetings are open to the public, so feel free to attend even if you're not a student!
