Alex is an entrepreneur with a track record of building teams that take ideas from the research
laboratory through commercialization. Alex was a co-founder, the CEO, and Board Director
of Aurrion from 2008-2016 which was a fabless semiconductor company that developed photonic integrated circuits for data center networking applications. The business was acquired by Juniper Networks. Alex worked for IBM, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Intel prior to founding Aurrion. Alex earned his M.S & Ph.D. from UCSB and is an alumnus of the Harvard Business School Owner/President Management Program. In his downtime, Alex enjoys riding off road motorcycles, playing guitar, smoking meat and reading books. Alex loves spending time with his wife and daughter going to live shows, travelling and eating weird stuff.

Nanomaterials have been applied in healthcare applications such as cancer imaging, lymph node mapping and brain diseases therapy. These nanomaterials can be engineered to serve as a platform for challenges in highly sensitive optical diagnostic tools, biosensors, and guided imaging and therapy. The versatility of nanomaterials may provide the keys to improve diagnostics and therapy of human diseases. In this talk, we will highlight the use of nanomaterials with different sizes, compositions, and shapes for nanomedicine applications. This talk is intended to promote the awareness of past and present developments of nanomaterials in biomedical fields, the potential toxicity of nanomaterials, and the approaches to engineer new types of safe nanomaterials, whereby encouraging researchers to think about exciting and promising biophotonic and nanomedicine applications with nanomaterials in the future.

The past decade has seen accelerated progress in III-V semiconductor infrared photodetector technology. The advent of the unipolar barrier infrared detector device architecture has in many instances greatly alleviated generation-recombination (G-R) and surface-leakage dark current issues that had been problematic for many III-V photodiodes. Meanwhile advances in a variety type-II superlattices (T2SLs) such as InGaAs/GaAsSb, InAs/GaSb, and InAs/InAsSb, as well as in bulk III-V material such as InGaAsSb and metamorphic InAsSb, have provided continuously adjustable detector cutoff wavelength coverage from the short wavelength infrared (SWIR) to the very long wavelength infrared (VLWIR). The confluence of these developments has led to a new generation of versatile, cost-effective, high-performance infrared detectors and focal plane arrays based on robust III-V semiconductors, providing a viable alternative to HgCdTe (MCT).
