Title: Challenges of Resource Allocation in Network Virtualization

Abstract: Network virtualization technology creates multiple tenants on the same physical infrastructure in a cost-effective and dynamic manner. It plays a key role in the cloud computing, which provides resources and services to users through the Internet. An infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider allocates virtual machines in physical machines to customers to meet their requests. The availability of cloud providers is increasingly concerned. There are several failures across the physical machines in cloud providers over the past few years, even for some high-profile cloud providers. This talk addresses challenges of resource allocation in network virtualization, including a probabilistic protection model, a prototype system to implement the model, and several computing and networking aspects.

Title: Printed Graphene Radio Frequency and Microwave Electronics

Abstract: Graphene is a two-dimensional (2D) planar layer of carbon atoms packed in a honeycomb lattice. It has been drawing a great attention from both research institutes and industry. Due to the unique chemical, thermal, mechanical, electronic and optical properties of graphene, many studies on its application for RF, microwave/millimeter-wave and THz devices and circuits have been reported. In this talk, the main focus will be on exfoliation of highly conductive graphene ink and printed graphene RF/microwave components on flexible substrates such as papers and textiles. Environmentally sustainable production of highly conductive graphene ink suitable for screen-printing technology has been developed and used for printing various low-cost, flexible, disposable antennas, transmission lines and sensors.

Title: Crossing Space, Time And Frequency Domains:  Recent Developments of Four-Dimensional Antenna Arrays

Abstract:Thanks to the time dimension introduced into traditional antenna arrays, 4D antenna arrays break through the boundary of space, time and frequency in array design. In addition to the beampatterns formed in traditional space domain, 4D antenna arrays are also able to be used for the synthesis of beampatterns in time and frequency domains. As typical representatives of 4D antenna arrays, time modulated arrays and frequency diverse arrays have been receiving much attention in recent years. Due to their powerful beamforming ability, 4D arrays have great potential in the applications to a variety of wireless systems. In particular, the use of large arrays, the limited platform and the growing secure threats promote 4D arrays to play a crucial role in next generation wireless system. In this talk, several recent advances on 4D antenna arrays and their applications in wireless system are reviewed. Studies show that 4D arrays have created many opportunities and challenges in high-efficiency beamforming of heterogeneous arrays and physical layer secure transmission with a lower hardware complexity.

Title: Applications of Oxide Thin Films in Flexible Sensors

ABSTRACT-Oxide functional thin films have been widely used in electronic and optoelectronic devices due to their special physical properties and the intercoupling nature under multiple physical fields. With the recent development of the transfer printing technology, integration of oxide functional thin films with flexible substrates becomes possible. By introducing oxide functional thin films into stretchable sensors, the performance of the sensors may be improved while more sensing functions may be achieved. However, because large deformation may occur in flexible sensors, the requirements for fabrication, design, and property modulation of the stretchable and flexible sensors are different with those of hard devices. In this talk, our recent researches on the flexible sensors based on oxide functional thin films will be presented. By using the transfer printing technique, VO2 thin films have been successfully peeled off and transfer printed onto flexible substrates. Utilizing the mechanical design and strain coupling strategy, some flexible sensors with high performance and stable working performance under large deformation have been realized.
Keywords: Stretchable, flexible, oxide thin films, sensors
