Help Sparky meet lots of kids
At our May OSSC Meeting it was announced that we are raising funds to help secure the donation of "Sparky" the robot to our outreach partners at Vital Link of Orange County. They provide Career Exploration programs to local schools. For the last year they have included our "What is Light?" hands-on exhibit.

Photonic Signal Processing for Optical Communications Receivers
Dr. Antonio Mendez
Pulse position modulation is a power efficient data communication scheme, but modulation/demodulation is difficult to implement at high data rates or throughputs. Mendez R&D Associates addresses this problem by means of photonic signal processing, including time-to-space mapping (which produces a virtual focal plane array). This talk describes the modulation/demodulation strategy and means to translate the virtual focal plane array into an output data stream.
