11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

High-Capacity Optical Communications using Multiplexing of Multiple Orbital-Angular-Momentum Beams
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Alan Willner, University of Southern California

Abstract: Optical communications has historically experienced tremendous capacity growth by multiplexing many channels and transmitting them simultaneously. Recently, the community has turned to research the possibility of space-division-multiplexing (SDM) as the next domain to exploit, and multiple spatially overlapping orthogonal modes can achieve a subset called mode-division-multiplexing (MDM). Indeed, the ability to multiplex multiple data-carrying modes over the same physical medium represents the potential for increasing system capacity and spectral efficiency.

Generating different amounts of orbital-angular-momentum (OAM) on different optical beams has emerged as a technique for such mode multiplexing. A beam can carry OAM if its phase front twists in a helical fashion as it propagates, and the amount of OAM corresponds to the number of 2*pi phase shifts that occur in the azimuthal direction. Each OAM beam is orthogonal to other beams, and such beams can be efficiently multiplexed, transmitted, and demultiplexed with little inherent crosstalk. This presentation will explore the achievements of and challenges to OAM-based optical and millimeter-wave communication systems, including transmission, turbulence compensation, and link design.

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

Event Image Vandana Shiva: Eco-Social Justice on the Global Fronlines
5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Cultural Events Board in partnership with Eye Resist and the Eco-Social Justice team at the Environmental Center present Vandana Shiva, a world-renowned policy expert, author, global leader and justice activist. 

In 2010, Forbes Magazine identified Shiva as one of the Seven Most Powerful Women in the Globe. She has received the Right Livelihood Award, also known as the "Alternative Nobel Prize," and continued to author books, policy papers and more.

Shiva is a trained nuclear and quantum physicist who dedicates herself to cultivating "earth democracy," and contributing in fundamental ways to changing the practice and paradigms of agriculture, food, science and economics.

She has made significant contributions to the areas of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and biodiversity while making visible the social, economic and ecological costs of corporate-led globalization. She is a famed activist raising awareness about the perils of genetically-modified foods and increasingly monopolized food systems.

On top of her policy and activist work in India, Shiva advises governments worldwide and is currently working with the government of Bhutan to make the nation 100 percent organic and with the governments of Tuscany and Rome to create a hopeful and livable future for young people. She still works with her famed Navdanya project, which, among many notable accomplishments, has founded over 40 seed banks in India in support of Indian farmers.

Event Image Sir James and Lady Jeanne Galway and Friends
7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

“The Man with the Golden Flute” pays a visit to Boulder for a mesmerizing, genre-defying performance. Between his classical credits, his star-studded collaborations and his iconic recordings for “The Lord of the Rings” films, Sir James Galway is the premier flutist of our time.

“The nonchalant virtuosity and sterling musicianship that have kept Galway's solo career going strong for nearly 40 years were readily apparent throughout a concert liberally laced with Irish encores and the flutist's twinkly repartee with the audience.  Galway's playing remains a marvel. Each encore – there were eight in all throughout the evening – appeared to invigorate him all the more.”
— Chicago Tribune
