Host: Rez Mani did a M.Eng in Engineering Physics focused on optical properties of semiconductors from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. This followed by a PhD in Earth and Space Science focused on satellite optical instrumentation from York University in Toronto, Ontario. After working in industry for 10 years where he participated in a multitude of optical/laser/spectroscopic projects, he returned to York University as a contract faculty and a research associate in 2011. He has also worked for Allied Scientific Pro as a consultant since 2011 and as an application scientist since 2017.

 Webinar Description: The webinar begins by explaining the fundamental differences between the near IR and mid -IR spectroscopy methods. The fundamental absorption bands exist in the mid-IR region, however overtones which are weaker can be found in the near IR region. Mid-IR instruments such as FTIR are expensive and bulky. Several industries are now turning to near IR spectroscopy for quality control since it is a fast and inexpensive method which uses light weight portable spectrometers. NIR can be used to find the ingredients of food such as sugar, protein, moisture and fat, ingredients of drugs, sort  plastics for recycling, find the roasting degree in coffee beans, polyester content of fabrics, and many other applications. Instead of using an array detector which is more expensive. A new method called Digital Light Processing or (DLP)  uses micromirrors to shine different parts of the spectrum one after another onto a single element detector and builds the spectrum. The technology and its applications are very promising.

Title: Laser Testing of Single Event Effect (SEE)
Host: Rez Mani did his M.Eng in Engineering Physics from McMaster University and his PhD in satellite spectroscopic instrumentation from York University. He worked in the industry for nearly 9 years, during which he participated in many optical, laser and spectroscopic projects He returned to York University in 2011 as a researcher and a contract faculty. He currently teaches the course "Atmospheric Pollution" for the department of Natural Science at York University. He has also been collaborating with Allied Scientific Pro as a consultant for more than 6 years and recently as an application scientist for a year.

Webinar Description:  Space-born instruments carry many electronic devices including micro-processors, shift registers, op-amps, flip flops etc. If a charged or an uncharged particle from space, strikes a sensitive node of an electronic circuit, it may cause a disruption or a permanent damage. Testing of electronic circuits prior to space launching for radiation hardness is crucial to protect the electronic devices against this danger. Although testing in particle accelerator facilities produces absolute results for dosage of damage threshold, the process is expensive and can be done only in very localized test centers. The optical testing using near IR pulsed lasers using femto/pico- second  pulse width and pico/nano joule pulse energy is much easier to set up and can be done at any location. The pulsed laser technique can focus on the device with submicron resolution. The optical method is unable to measure the absolute upset threshold but the laser upset threshold can be compared with the ion beam upset threshold. It is assumed that the relative differences remain the same throughout the measurements and hence all subsequent measurements can be done with the pulsed laser. Although the optical method is compared to the radiation method, it is necessary to emphasize that it is not meant to replace it. Instead, the optical method is meant to be complementary to the radiation method.
