Parker Hannifin MAE Student Lecture Series (4/5)

Please join us for the next Student Lecture Series (SLS) lunch ‘n learn event on Wednesday April 5 at noon in Scott Lab E525.

The event will feature two speakers, including one guest  speaker from the Technology Commercialization Office at the Ohio State University. Speaker abstracts follow below.

Don’t forget! The Parker Hannifin Student Lecture Series is always looking for speakers! These events are great practice for an upcoming conference or defense. All graduate students are encouraged to participate.

Electric Field Measurements in Nanosecond Pulse Discharges in Atmospheric Pressure Air: Picosecond Four-wave mixing

Temporally and spatially resolved electric field measurements in a nanosecond plasma discharge are presented. The studied discharge geometry is similar to those used for plasma flow actuation. The electric field together with electrons number density and electrons temperature are the three primary parameters controlling kinetic reactions occurring in nanosecond discharges. Especially, rates of energy partition in the internal energy modes of molecules are highly dependent on the reduced electric field E/N (electric field divided by the gas total number density). The electric field is measured using picosecond four-wave mixing. This laser diagnostic allows us to reach ~ 2 ns time resolution, ~ 100 um spatial resolution in addition to give us access to the field vectors components.

Dr. Gooray presently serves as Senior Technology Licensing Manager for Technology Commercialization Office at the Ohio State University. Prior to joining Ohio State, Art was a Product Development Manager with Kodak Company for 15 years. Art was also a Technology Program Manager with Xerox Corp for 19 years, where he oversaw the successful transfer of new technologies from research (internal and external R&D organizations) to product development business units. Dr. Gooray successfully executed technology transfer from Sandia National Laboratories and the University of Waterloo. In addition, he served as a Product Development Best Practices resource for MIT, the National Council of Entrepreneurial Tech Transfer, Howard University and other HBCU’s, and as an adjunct professor for Technology-based Ventures at Wright State University and Rochester Institute of Technology.

Arch/E Week: Monday Madness (4/3)

As a part of the Architecture/Engineering (Arch/E) Week, MEGA will be hosting Monday Madness on April 3rd from 4p-7p in E100 and the Scott Lab courtyard.

The event comprises several competitive games for which you’ll be able to play for gift cards and other prizes.
1. Potato sack race

2. Tug-of-war

3. Ping-pong

4. Corn hole

In order to organize the competitions for the different activities, we ask interested students to sign-up for the event(s) in advance — by 6PM on Sunday April 2nd at the Qualtrics survey below. 
The event will also feature free pizza and soft drinks.
