Semiconductor-based lasers have shown to enjoy a broad range of industrial, medical, and research applications during the last three decades, including data communication, sensing, high-power micromachining, and visualization. Surface emitting lasers (SELs) are semiconductor-based laser diodes that emit light in the form of a coherent optical beam from its top surface. SELs have greater advantage than the edge emitting lasers (EELs) which emit light from the sidewall, or Light Emitting Diode (LEDs) which emit light from the sidewalls and the top surface. These include high-quality high-power circular laser beam with narrow divergence, emission wavelength stability at higher temperatures, and ability to easily assemble, package, and test large 2D arrays, all of which lead to a lower total manufacturing cost. In this presentation, recent advances in Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) along with some of their notable applications are introduced. These include VCSELs that emit light both in the visible and infrared wavelength range and can produce output power ranging from a few milliwatts to tens of watts.

Join NCyTE for an informative panel discussion on cybersecurity apprenticeships at the May NCyTE Membership Meeting. Cybersecurity apprenticeships are a highly effective approach to preparing students for employment, as they offer a combination of classroom instruction and real-world work experience. This creates a valuable pathway to building a strong workforce pipeline for both higher education institutions and employers.

This panel of experts from the Coastline Community College, the US Department of Labor, and CompTIA will share their experiences and offer recommendations for improving or starting an apprenticeship program. This is an excellent opportunity for faculty, administrators, and employers who are interested in developing a strong workforce and preparing students for success in the cybersecurity field. 

This event was organized by the ATE National Cybersecurity Training & Education (NCyTE) Center.

This webinar focuses on the various forms associated with NSF ATE grant proposals. Forms can make up 2/3 of a final proposal submission and impact the quality and accuracy of a proposal. The webinar will cover:
