Lasers are essential to an incredibly large number of applications. Today, they are used in bar code readers, compact discs, medicine, communications, sensors, materials processing, computer printers, data processing, 3D-imaging, spectroscopy, navigation, non-destructive testing, chemical processing, color copiers, laser "shows", and in the military. There is hardly a field untouched by the laser. But what exactly is so unique about lasers...more

This course examines major works by Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Faulkner, exploring their interconnections on three analytic scales: the macro history of the United States and the world; the formal and stylistic innovations of modernism; and the small details of sensory input and psychic life. Warning: Some of the lectures in this course contain graphic content and/or adult language that some users may find disturbing.
This course explores the physical processes that control Earth's atmosphere, ocean, and climate. Quantitative methods for constructing mass and energy budgets. Topics include clouds, rain, severe storms, regional climate, the ozone layer, air pollution, ocean currents and productivity, the seasons, El Niño, the history of Earth's climate, global warming, energy, and water resources.
Philosophy and the Science of Human Nature pairs central texts from Western philosophical tradition (including works by Plato, Aristotle, Epictetus, Hobbes, Kant, Mill, Rawls, and Nozick) with recent findings in cognitive science and related fields. The course is structured around three intertwined sets of topics: Happiness and Flourishing; Morality and Justice; and Political Legitimacy and Social Structures.
Signal Processing is the process of measuring, manipulating or analysing information. Signals of interest include biomedical data, audio, still or moving images, radar, and even DNA. Filtering techniques can be crucial in revealing and interpreting information present in a signal. ELEC3104 Digital Signal Processing is an introductory signal processing course which takes students through the steps necessary to design and implement filter...more
The course covers the system and design issues relevant to high-speed electrical (and optical, if time permits) signaling. We start with the basics of channel properties, modeling, measurements, and communications techniques. Circuit design of main components is covered in detail. The system design issues such as planning and budgeting are presented. A large portion of the class is devoted to case studies that include the multi...more
This play list should be pretty much in order with the way many people will see material in the class. Of course, not all classes are the same, so some of my videos may be out of order with your particular class. If you are looking for a particular topic, you are also encouraged to do an individual search on that topic as well, as I may have left a few videos out on accident.
