Mehdi Anwar currently serves as a Full Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. As a Jefferson Science Fellow he served as Special Adviser for Technology Transfer and Innovation in the office of Intellectual Property Enforcement, Economic Bureau, U. S. Department of State. At present, Dr.Anwar is assisting the United Nations Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries, and Small Island Developing States to stand up the newly established United Nations Technology Bank for the Least Developed Countries. Dr. Anwar has served as the Associate Dean for Research & Graduate Education, School of Engineering, (2006 -2009), founding Director of the Department of Homeland Security Center of Excellence (2007-2009), interim Director of the Connecticut Global Fuel Cell Center (2007-2009) and interim Department Head of ECE (1999-2001). He was an IPA (July ’04 – August ’05) at the Sensors Directorate, Hanscom Air Force Base, working on advanced metamorphic HEMTs and GaN-based HFETs pioneering the design of low noise antimony-based-compound-semiconductor (ABCS) HEMTs. He has presented over 40 plenary and invited talks at national/international conferences, published over 240 research articles and book chapters and edited 9 volumes. Dr. Anwar served as an Editor of IEEE JEDS and served as an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices (2001 – 2010); Guest Editor of Optical Engineering; conference chair of Terahertz Physics, Devices and Systems, at SPIE DSS/Sensing (2009-2016).


A general overview of the state-of-the-art in memristor research and development including neuromorphic computing and learning will be provided. This will follow discussion of the underlying physical/chemical processes governing the operation of this class of devices. Discussions on modeling will include DC, transients and RF operations. Material growth and fabrication of memristors emphasizing ZnO as a material platform will be presented. DC and RF measurements will be compared to theoretical results to facilitate material identification for specific outcomes. System level application will be demonstrated with an experimental realization of one- bit PUF.

Woon Siong Gan

Keynote: Transport theory in condensed matter physics-metamaterial is phase transition

Time : 09:30-10:00

Woon Siong Gan obtained his PhD in Feb 1969, from the physics department of Imperial College London. He is the first to introduce transport theory to statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics in 1966. The title of his PhD thesis is Transport Theory in Magnetoacoustics. In the past, transport theory has been used only in kinetic theory and neutrons trasport theory. He is also the first to introduce symmetry properties to acoustic fields in 2007 which has been demonstrated by the successful fabrication of acoustic metamaterials. He has published the book Acoustical Imaging;Techniques and Applications for Engineers by John Wiley and Sons in 2012 and seveal other papers. He is also the Founder and current President of the Society of Acoustics(Singapore) and the Founding Director of Acoustical Technologies Singapore Pte Ltd, a technologies company with experties in acosutcial imaging.


In 1966, W S Gan first introduced transport theory to statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics. In the past, transport theory has been associated only with kinetic theory and neutrons transport theory in nuclear reactor research. It is also at about the same time in 1966 that solid state physics changed name to condensed matter physics to reflect the role of phase transition. Transport theory has now become the most important theory in statistical mechanics. It is the foundation of theoretical design of materials. Transport theory describes the transport properties of different phases of matter and so is closely related to phase transition. The 2016, Nobel physics award to topological phase transition enhanced the status of phase transition as it is a breakthrough to a whole new world of new materials or new phases of matter. In this apper use of the power of phase transition to explain turbulence and sonoluminescence will be given. An Ising model of turbulence will be proposed which will provide a rigorous theory to desribe the region around the critical point or critical temperature of second order phase transition. The weakness of the Landau-Ginzburg theory of second order phase trnsisiton is that it is a phenomenology and meanfield theory and is unable to explain the region around the critical temperature.

John O Roberts

University of Liverpool, UK

Keynote: Proposed link between the periodic table and the standard model

Time : 10:00-10:30

John O Roberts has been an Open University Science Tutor for 30 years, having attended Rutherford-Appleton Lab and CERN as a Summer School Student. He has been a Freelance Tutor of Maths, Physics and Chemistry for many years and wrote the book “Those Infinities and the Periodic Table” over a period of five years from an idea in December 2010.


The patterns of stable quantum states in the periodic table are inverted and extended to infinity in both directions to accommodate spatial variation relative to the nucleus. The upper end leads to a cut off point for white matter. The lower end represents quantum states in plasma. At 10-15 m to 10-20 m, the interaction between weak strong and gravity forces result in suitable boundary conditions for the production of elementary particles. Chemical classification of the elements requires convergence of chemical properties and quantum states. By defining group number as the maximum number of electrons in any one shell, Hydrogen and Helium were moved to the first set of 2 (1)2 states first proposed by Janet. The atomic numbers were adjusted and mass number removed as it is an average of isotopes of each element produced in every supernova. This produces the Roberts Janet nuclear periodic table which proposed two zero states, a cut off and start point, of the electric field in attractive then repulsive modes. By symmetry of these fields energy states emerged in plasma with the counter intuitive property that the nearer the nucleus the greater the number of energy states. Fusion results and the consequential recycling implied a more rapid collapse than supernovae given sufficient energy density that could create an as yet unobserved interaction at 10-50 m to 10-65 m between the strong and gravity forces. String theory and extra dimensions may be required to explain such mechanisms and multiverses.

Rikio Konno has completed his PhD from University of Tokyo and postdoctoral studies from Tsukuba University. He is the Science Section Head of Kindai University Technical College, a famous college based on Kindai University in Japan. He has published more than 25 papers in reputed journals. He has won the International Plato Award for the Educational Achievement, the Order of International Fellowship Golden Peace Prize, and Ultimate Achiever Award for Science-Certificate in 2009. He is a Member of Physical Society Japan, a Life Member of American Physical Society, and a Member of Institute of Physics, UK.


The history of spin fluctuation theory in itinerant electron systems is overviewed. Doniach and Engelsburg developed spin fluctuation theory by using the random-phase approximation (R.P.A.) when they investigated magnetic specific heat. The magnetic susceptibility of their theory was the same as that of Wohlfarth. Murata and Doniach further developed spin fluctuation theory by RPA. Moriya and Kawabata successfully reproduced the Curie-Weiss law. Lonzarich, et al. and Moriya, et al. reproduced the T2-linear dependence of the magnetization at low temperature. However, their theory did not satisfy the magnetic scaling law. Takahashi resolved the problem by using the conserved spin local amplitude that is composed of the thermal component and the zero-point component. I discuss the recent results of the temperature dependence of the inverse magnetic susceptibility in itinerant electron systems.
