Speech Title: Connected vehicles-Technologies beyond Electrification

Abstract: Transportation electrification is one of the objectives towards reducing urban pollution and decarbonization. Majority of the nations are now focussing on e-mobility in order to accomplish the goals. However, decarbonization behind battery EV charging is a concern because of the carbon footprint due to the electric power generation. In addition, electrification of gasoline vehicles does not reduce the concerns of traffic congestion and safety on the road. This keynote talk will address the issues of on road safety and traffic congestion by the conceptualisation of connected vehicles. It demands for more electronics instead of more electric technologies in vehicles. The talk will address the technologies, merits as well as challenges behind connected vehicles technologies.

Speech Title: Polarimetric Terahertz Spectroscopy and Key Components

Abstract: Terahertz rays have some unique features in many potential applications, and polarization is its very important EM property. When a conventional THz spectroscopy system is used to measure an unknown anisotropic sample, sometimes it is possible to mis-interpret the polarization filter effect as normal spectral absorption, thus leads to a wrong identification of the sample. In order to overcome such THz polarization test problem, we carried out a comprehensive investigation on the Polarimetric Terahertz Spectroscopy (PTS), from the system level to its key components----achromatic Terahertz polarization waveplate. In addition to those conventional test parameters, PTS will be able to automatically test the State of Polarization of THz wave, as well as all the additional polarization information (including birefringence, PDL and Muller Matrix) of samples across full band). Such a PTS will be a one of the powerful sensing tools and solutions to be used to explore new Terahertz applications.
