Presentations

Portable UV-C Disinfection Methods (JTu2R.1)
Presenter: Andrea Armani, USC

UV-C disinfection in healthcare was popularized due to antibiotic resistant bacteria, but the approach became more well-known during the current COVID-19 pandemic. This presentation will discuss a recently developed, constructed, and validated portable UV-C system.

Authors:Andrea Armani, USC

  Paper

Accelerated Grassroots Innovation: Insights From the MIT COVID-19 Challenge (JTu2R.2)
Presenter: Freddy Nguyen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The MIT COVID-19 Challenge’s channelled the world's best and brightest towards solving the greatest global COVID-19 challenge by hosting 7 weekend virtual innovation sprints bringing multi-disciplinary stakeholders to define impactful problems, and develop viable solutions.

Authors:Freddy Nguyen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

  Paper

Purcell-Enhanced UV Sources (JTu2R.3)
Presenter: Avner Shultzman, Technion

UV lamps are of increasing importance for safe virus disinfection. Here we propose a novel concept for UV sources based on a stack of phosphor-nanolayers, designed to maximize the output emission through photonic local-density-of-states engineering.

  Paper

High Contrast Reporter Cleavage Detection for Enhancing Porous Silicon Sensor Sensitivity (JTu2R.4)
Presenter: Michael Dubrovsky, SiPhox Inc.

We show the first experimental implementation of biosensing using high contrast reporter cleavage detection (HCRCD). HCRCD makes use of dramatic signal amplification caused by cleavage of high-contrast nanoparticle labeled reporters instead of the capture of low-index bio-molecules.

  Paper

ENZYME ACTIVITY DIAGNOSTICS of SARS INFECTION BASED on FOERSTER RESONANCE ENERGY TRANSFER (JTu2R.5)
Presenter: Frauke Rininsland, Mesa Photonics

More accurate COVID tests are urgently needed. To meet this need, a rapid on-site test using tongue scrape lysate was developed that detects cleavage of a FRET peptide specifically recognized by a SARS protease.
