NiPS Laboratory is organizing a networking session at ICT2015, in Lisbon, on Oct. 22, 2015.
The title of the session is "Decreasing energy consumption toward zero-power devices". 
 

Francesco Orfei from NiPS attends the ISVLSI 2015 Conference

 

 

Montpellier, July 10, 2015

 

Francesco Orfei from NiPS presented research progresses at the international conference ISVLSI 2015 (www.isvlsi.org) in   Montpellier, France.

The conference explores emerging trends, novel ideas and concepts in the area of VLSI. The Symposium covers a range of topics: from VLSI circuits, systems and design methods to system level design and system-on-chip issues, to bringing VLSI experience to new areas and technologies like nano- and molecular devices, MEMS, and quantum computing.

 

Prof. J. Bokor, vice director of E3S Berkeley visits NiPS Laboratory

 

Perugia, 2-7-2015

 

Prof. Jeff Bokor, Associated Dean ath the EECS University of Berkeley and vice director of the "Center for Energy Efficient Electronics Science (E3S)" (http://www.e3s-center.org), visited NiPS Laboratory on July 2nd.

During prof. Bokor visit, the memebrs of NiPS together with scientists from the GHOST (http://ghost.fisica.unipg.it) group of the University of Perugia, presented recent results on their research on "towards zero-power computing" (see the recent review).

 

Doctoral Symposium in Bristol on Sept. 16th 2015

 

NiPS Laboratory, together with the University of Bristol and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center is organizing a Doctoral Symposium to be held in Bristol, on Sept. 16th, 2015.

The doctoral symposium is a part of ICT-Energy workshop (2015) (www.ict-energy.eu).

This symposium is a great opportunity for PhD students to present their thesis work to a broad audience in the ICT community from both industry and academia. The forum may also help students to establish contacts for entering into research related to minimization of energy from various layers. In addition, representatives from industry and academia get a glance of state-of-the-art in the energy minimization field.

Thermal noise in mirror suspension  is the most severe limit to the low-frequency sensitivity of first generation interferometric gravitational wave detectors. In order to minimize the pendulum thermal noise, a monolithic suspension, using fused silica as a low dissipation material, has been developed for Advanced Virgo.

Now the first monolithic suspension has been realized last Thursday June 11st, thanks to a strong collaboration between the INFN groups of Perugia, Firenze and Roma1, that also collaborate in the development of such key components of the mirror suspensions. -
