COURSE OBJECTIVES COVERED BY THIS SEMINAR:

  • Build an understanding of the electromagnetic waves.
  • Familiarize the student with the basics of optical fiber communication demand.
  • Introduce the student to advancement of technologies used in optical fiber communication Technology.

 

DESCRIPTION

Dr. Dhananjay Patel, Post PhD from IIT Bombay,  Associate Professor in the department of Electronics and Telecommunication at Vidyalankar Institute of Technology, Mumbai conducted the seminar on Limiting the losses in optical fibers in Passive Optical Networks on 18th July 2019. This seminar provided students with an Several methods for millimeter wave up conversion based on Double Sideband Suppressed Carrier (DSBSC), Double Sideband with Carrier and Single Sideband using Mach Zehnder Modulator (MZM) have been reported.There are several theoretical and simulative studies on optical double sideband (ODSB) and optical single sideband (OSSB) Radio over Fiber (RoF) system. The simulations are carried out using Mach Zehnder Modulator (MZM) by varying its chirp and Extinction Ratio (ER) over different fiber link. In RoF systems, with the increase in RF frequency, the chromatic dispersion becomes severe thus reducing the transmission distance over fiber link. Thus a system is needed to reduce the effect of chromatic dispersion and increase the transmission distance. Further, the system using OSSB being more immune to dispersion effects as compared to ODSB systems can be used for long distance transmission.

 

 

MOTIVATION GIVEN:

DSBSC provides high receiver sensitivity, high spectral efficiency against ODSB and OSSB

Modulation techniques. However, the signal in DSBSC suffers due to non linear electro- optical

conversion response and imperfect power splitting ratio of MZM. The imperfect splitting ratio of MZM is caused by asymmetric power-splitting Y-branches due to fabrication tolerances leading to a finite Extinction Ratio (ER). Besides, if this signal is transmitted over a fiber, it will suffer more degradation due to the chromatic dispersion, thus reducing the transmission distance over fiber link. In this report, optical up conversion scheme using Double Sideband Suppressed Carrier (DSBSC) modulation is analyzed theoretically and using software simulation.

 

Further, we have shown through numerical analysis and software simulations that with the effect of Extinction Ratio (ER) of Dual Electrode Mach Zehnder Modulator (MZM) in Optical Single Sideband (OSSB) signal generation increases. The signal quality suffers due to the non linear electro- optical conversion response of MZM. Our results show that, with the proper selection of ER and Modulation Index (MI) of MZM, the OSSR increases along with the suppression of higher order sidebands. Also the report provides an insight on the generation and performance analysis of two different optical single sideband (OSSB) modulation techniques depending upon the phase angle of electrical hybrid coupler. The RF signal at the input of a dual drive Mach Zehnder Modulator (MZM) is divided in two parts equally with an electrical hybrid coupler providing a phase difference of 90о and 120о respectively. The conventional OSSB generation with 90о phase difference suppresses either lower or upper first order sideband, while 120о suppresses lower first order and upper second order sideband (or upper first order and lower second order sideband).

.

 

OUTCOMES OF THIS SEMINAR:

  • Understand the optical fibers in Passive Optical Networks and its applications.
  • Understand the Limiting the losses in optical fibers in Passive Optical Networks.
  • Identify how optical fibers Technology can be used in future.

Event Details:

A visit to IIT-Bombay Nanoelectronics department was organised by the faculty of Shree L. R. Tiwari College of Engineering for the students. IIT-Bombay has a set up for the nanofabrication processes for research purpose. And hence this visit was organised to have a brief idea about the theoretical concepts. Students were asked to report sharp at 9am at the main gate of IIT-Bombay. After completing the formalities, everyone reached the nanoelectronics building. There the students were divided into groups of 10. Each group was made to visit the various labs one by one accompanied by a research scholar there. Following topics were covered from the syllabus:

Deposition systems (CVD, ALD, PVD):

PVD Depositions: Silicon Nitride, Silicon Oxide, Silicon Oxy Nitride and Amorphous

Silicon. Types of substrates: 2”,4”,8”, small pieces of wafers- Si, glass, Quartz.

Temperature: Room temperature to 380 degree Celsius.

Process gas used: SiH₄, N₂O, CF₄, Ar, He, H₂, N₂, NH.₃

CVD: Instrument Provider: Oxford Instruments. Gases available: SiH₄, N₂O, CF₄, Ar, He, H₂N₂,

 

NH₃. Films Deposited: SiNx, SiOx, SiOxNy. Wafer Dimensions: Small pieces, 125x125mm, 156x156mm

ALD: Switch ON MCB behind the system. Phase MCB is for pump and 1 Phase MCB is for equipment. Switch on the rotary pump. On display panel press control- Press Pump and Enter. GN2 for solenoid operations should be at 80 psi.

Molecular Beam Epitaxy:

MBE takes place in high vacuum or ultra-high vacuum (10-8 Pa). The most important aspect of MBE is slow deposition rate (typically less than 1000 nm per hour), which allows the films to grow epitaxially. The slow deposition rates require proportionally better vacuum to achieve the same impurity levels as other deposition techniques.

Furnaces for oxidation, diffusion and annealing (2-inch, 4 inch):

During semiconductor device fabrication, thin film growth and deposition steps typically occur more number of times than any other process. These are often critical processes that require careful thickness and quality control. For example, during silicon transistor fabrication, growth of thin film SiO₂ is generally required immediately after the RCA clean process. This oxide can be grown on the Si wafer surface using different process that define its growth rate and quality. Whatever is the chosen process, maintaining the tight control of the process conditions and minimizing contamination on the wafer surface during the growth process is critical for final device performance. Hence, separate process-based oxide growth furnaces are needed for the same.

Etch tools (STS RIE, Etch Centura and Edge Isolation tool):

While a lithography process is used to write micrometre/nanometre-sized patterns on a resist layer, a different technique is needed to transfer those patterns from the resist onto the main layer on the semiconductor wafer. Wet etching and dry etching are the most commonly used processes to achieve this goal. Dr etch usually refers to material removal or patterning using a chemically reactive plasma. When a lithographic patterned sample is introduced into this plasma, ionic species bombard and chemically react with the exposed areas, while the resist patterned areas are left protected. This method is anisotropic whereas wet etch is isotropic in nature. As a result, this method is preferable.

Lithography Tools:

IITBNF has multiple optical lithography tools with different dimension limits. They also have a laser writer system that is capable of producing mask plates with micrometre sized (patterns for use in optical lithography tools. The best resolution at IITBNF (< 20nm) is achieved through the state-of-the-art e-beam lithography tool. This tool can also be used for silicon dioxide and metal deposition using its electron beam induced deposition (EBID) feature. For both optical and e-beam tools, resist spinners dedicated to different types of resists are available with capabilities to process 2”, 4” and 8” wafers. All lithography tools housed in separate clean rooms with tight control over temperature and lighting conditions.

Plasma Immersion Ion Implanter:

As CMOS device gate length has shrunk to 45nm, the short channel effects (SCE) becomes very severe. To reduce SCE, one of the solutions is to make very shallow S/D junctions. For the same, implant energy is less than 2keV is required, where commercial Ion Beam Implanters have several issues like beam current instabilities at low voltages. PIII is very suitable for ion energy even at 200V operation. This system uses BF₃ and PH₃ gases for Boron (p type) and Phosphorous (n type) implants in Si wafers.

Event Outcomes:

Students have understood the concepts better and have come to know about the actual practical set up of nanofabrication processes. A visual idea was obtained by this visit about the Clean Room and Si wafers.

COURSE OBJECTIVES COVERED BY THIS SEMINAR:

  • Build an understanding of the electromagnetic radiation or sound.
  • Familiarize the student with the basics of composite materials.
  • Introduce the student to advancement of technologies used in Metamaterials.

 

DESCRIPTION

Mr. Satish Bhoyar conducted the seminar on ‘Metamaterials and its applications’ on 16th February 2019. This seminar provided students with an overview of the concepts and fundamentals of electromagnetic radiation or sound. Topics covered in seminar included: What is electromagnetic radiation, How composite materials are useful, Concept of Metamaterial, and how metamaterials technology can be used in future.

 

MOTIVATION GIVEN:

A metamaterial (from the Greek word μετά meta, meaning “beyond”) is a material engineered to have a property that is not found in naturally occurring materials. They are made from assemblies of multiple elements fashioned from composite materials such as metals or plastics. The materials are usually arranged in repeating patterns, at scales that are smaller than the wavelengths of the phenomena they influence. Metamaterials derive their properties not from the properties of the base materials, but from their newly designed structures. Their precise shape, geometry, size, orientation and arrangement gives them their smart properties capable of manipulating electromagnetic waves: by blocking, absorbing, enhancing, or bending waves, to achieve benefits that go beyond what is possible with conventional materials.

Potential applications of metamaterials are diverse and include optical filters, medical devices, remote aerospace applications, sensor detection and infrastructure monitoring, smart solar power management, crowd control, radomes, high-frequency battlefield communication and lenses for high-gain antennas, improving ultrasonic sensors, and even shielding structures from earthquakes. Metamaterials offer the potential to create superlenses. Such a lens could allow imaging below the diffraction limit that is the minimum resolution that can be achieved by conventional glass lenses. A form of ‘invisibility’ was demonstrated using gradient-index materials. Acoustic and seismic metamaterials are also research areas.

 

OUTCOMES OF THIS SEMINAR:

  • Understand the electromagnetic radiation or sound.
  • Understand the composite materials Concept.
  • Identify how metamaterials can be used in future in Antennas, Superlens, Seismic protection, Sound filtering.

VENUE : Global Hospital, near Ramdev park Mira Road (E).

DATE: 24/08/2018

                           Students of TE ETRX SLRTCE  visited hospital for study and demonstration of some instruments like ECG machine, blood pressure measurement equipment and Defibrillator.

 They observe various function and application of instruments and they demonstrated how it works practically

  • ECG Machine –

 

Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG) is the process of recording the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time using electrodes placed over the skin. These electrodes detect the tiny electrical changes on the skin that arise from the heart muscle’s electrophysiological pattern of depolarizing and repolarizing during each heartbeat. It is very commonly performed to detect any cardiac problems. In ECG machine reading it shoes amount

Of  oxygen in body and various parameter etc.

 

 

  • Blood pressure measurement

The auscultatory method (from the Latin word for “listening”) uses a stethoscope and a sphygmomanometer. This comprises an inflatable (Riva-Rocci) cuff placed around the upper arm at roughly the same vertical height as the heart, attached to a mercury or aneroid manometer. The mercury manometer, considered the gold standard, measures the height of a column of mercury, giving an absolute result without need for calibration and, consequently, not subject to the errors and drift of calibration which affect other methods.useof mercury manometers is often required in clinical trials and for the clinical measurement of hypertension in high-risk patients, such as pregnant women.

A cuff of the appropriate size is fitted smoothly and also snugly, then inflated manually by repeatedly squeezing a rubber bulb until the artery is completely occluded. It is important that the cuff size is correct: undersized cuffs record too high a pressure; oversized cuffs may yield too low a pressure. Usually three or four cuff sizes should be available to allow measurements in arms of different size.  Listening with the stethoscope to the brachial artery at the antecubital area of the elbow, the examiner slowly releases the pressure in the cuff

 

 

 

3)Defibrillator –

 

Defibrillation is a treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation (VF) and non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia (VT). A defibrillator delivers a dose of electric current (often called a countershock) to the heart. Although not fully understood, this would depolarize a large amount of the heart muscle, ending the dysrhythmia. Subsequently, the body’s natural pacemaker in the sinoatrial node of the heart is able to re-establish normal sinus rhythm

In contrast to defibrillation, synchronized electrical cardioversion is an electrical shock delivered in synchrony to the cardiac cycle. Although the person may still be critically ill, cardioversion normally aims to end poorly perfusing cardiac dysrhythmias, such as supraventricular tachycardiawe understood that Defibrillator is used only when there is emergency When the patients heart stops working, shock is given to trigger the heart otherwise pacemaker is used.

Event details:

Reached to the lab at 2pm.In three batches their volunteers explained all the departments one by one. Following points are covered from the syllabus.

Fabrication:

  • Deposition systems (CVD,ALD,PVD)

http://www.cen.iitb.ac.in/slotbooking/SOP/166_SOP.pdf

http://www.cen.iitb.ac.in/slotbooking/GLIMPSE/166_GLIMPSE.pdf

http://www.cen.iitb.ac.in/slotbooking/SOP/199_SOP.pdf

 

  • Molecule Bam Epitaxy (GaAs/InGaAs)

Molecular beam epitaxy takes place in high vacuum or ultra-high vacuum (10-8 Pa). The most important aspect of MBE is the slow deposition rate (typically less than 1000 nm per hour), which allows the &ilms to grow epitaxially. The slow deposition rates require proportionally better vacuum to achieve the same impurity levels as other deposition techniques.

 

  • Furnaces for oxidation ,diffusion and annealing(2 inch,4inch)

During semiconductor device fabrication, thin film growth and deposition steps typically occur more number of times than any other process. These are often critical processes that require careful thickness and quality control. For example, during silicon (Si) transistor fabrication, growth of a thin film of silicon dioxide (SiO2) is generally required immediately after the RCA clean process. This oxide can be grown on the Si wafer surface using different processes that define its growth rate and quality. Whatever the chosen process, maintaining tight control of process conditions and minimizing contamination on the Si wafer surface during the growth process is critical for final device performance. Hence, separate process-based oxide growth furnaces are needed for the same.

 

  • Etch tools(STS RIE,EtchCentura&Edge isolation tool)

While a lithography process is used to ‘write’ micrometer/nanometer-sized patterns on a resist layer, a different technique is needed to transfer these patterns from the resist onto the main layer on the semiconductor wafer. Wet etching & dry etching are the most commonly used processes to achieve this goal.Dry etch usually refers to material removal or patterning using a chemically reactive plasma. When a lithographically patterned sample is introduced into this plasma, ionic species bombard and chemically react with the exposed areas, while the resist-patterned areas are left protected. This method of pattern transfer from resist to the main layer using dry etch technique is anisotropic, whereas wet etch processes are typically isotropic in nature. As a result, dry etching is the preferred process for pattern transfer of small dimensions (≤ 10μm) and is often one of the critical steps in a semiconductor device fabrication run.

 

  • Rapid thermal annealing.
  • http://www.cen.iitb.ac.in/slotbooking/SOP/164_SOP.pdf
  • Lithography tools.

IITBNF has multiple optical lithography tools with different pattern dimension limits. We also have a laser writer system that is capable of producing mask plates with micrometre-sized patterns for use in the optical lithography tools. The best resolution at IITBNF (< 20 nm) is achieved through our state-of-the-art e-beam lithography tool: Raith 150 Two. This tool can also be used for in-situ silicon dioxide and metal deposition using its electron beam induced deposition (EBID) feature. For both optical & e-beam tools, resist spinners dedicated to different types of resists are available with capabilities to process 2”, 4” & 8” wafers. All lithography tools are housed in separate clean rooms with tight control over temperature, humidity & lighting conditions.

  • Plasma immersion ion implaner.

 

As CMOS device gate length has shrunk to 45nm, the short channel effects (SCE) become very severe. To reduce SCE one of the solution is to make very shallow S/D junctions. For the same, we require implant energy less than 2KeV, where commercial Ion Beam Implanters have several issues like beam current instabilities at low voltages. PIII is very suitable for ion energy even at 200V operation. This system uses BF3 and PH3 gasses for Boron (ptype) and Phosphorus (n-type) implants in Si wafers.

 

  • Gas injection system.

 

Event outcomes

Students come to know about actual practical set up of fabrication of nanodevices/ MEMS devices. They can visualize silicon wafers, cleanroom.

Core JAVA Concepts

 

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES COVERED BY THIS SEMINAR:

  • Ability to write a program on one platform and run it on any other platform without worrying about the platform specific features.
  • To introduce a feature called Java Portability.
  • Concepts of JAVA abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism

 

DESCRIPTION

Mr. Naveen Porwal conducted the seminar on ‘CORE JAVA CONCEPTA’ on 17th January 2015. This seminar provided students with an overview of the concepts and fundamentals of JAVA. Topics covered in seminar included: abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism.

MOTIVATION GIVEN:

Java’s primary motivation was platform independence and not internet. Platform independence means the ability to write a program on one platform and run it on any other platform without worrying about the platform specific features, which is nothing but a portable software. If it works on one platform, it should work on all other platforms. e.g., platforms are Unix, Mac, Windows, Android.

Platform independence could be achieved for a C/C++ program, by compiling it for every platform. But C/C++ compilers are expensive to build and also there could be differences between platforms which causes inconsistencies in the program execution. So achieving portable software using C/C++ is difficult and error prone. This is also referred as WOCA = Write Once, Compile Anywhere.

Target Groups:  Third and Final year students

A Report on the guest lecture organised by Electronics Engineering Department

“How to be technopreneurs” held on 4/10/14.

 

 

A seminar on “ How to be technopreneurs ” was delivered by Shri Sunilkumar Dwivedi on Oct. 04th , 2014 for the target audience of TE: ETRX organised by the Electronics department of Shree L.R.Tiwari College Of Engineering.

 

Mr. Sunilkumar Dwivedi, is currently the Manager marketing at Runwal builders. He has 5 years of teaching plus industrial experience. He has various publications to his credit in International conferences and Journals. His research interests include marcom,manpower training, communication etc.

 

The objectives of the seminar were to provide an introduction to world of Technopreneurs combine the power of technology with the spirit of entrepreneurship. They create new products that can be sold by new businesses. They find high-tech ways to keep us informed, entertained, and connected every day. Here, we go through the in’s and out’s of being a technopreneur and, in the end, how you can become one too:

 

The seminar acquainted the attendees with the Technopreneurs are different from inventors. Inventors come up with ideas, but technopreneurs put them into action. Their businesses provide jobs and challenges and opportunities for new workers. They have a much larger impact than inventors, as the inventors are the only ones benefiting monetarily from their inventions, whereas technopreneurs provide job opportunities to the common man and benefit the whole society.

Technopreneurs are successfully gaining traction in the Middle East. Take the example of the websites, which shows news in all languages and the news is centric to that specific region.It is a simple enough idea and yet has gained a lot of traction and is working better than anyone expected. The website owners choose simple topics that are the requirements of the local people and make them easily available for the people. One simple example is the price of dollars in Egypt. This saves the business men trips to local money exchangers.

It is simple ideas like these that the technopreneurs need to focus on instead of making big promises which they find hard to deliver later on.
