8:15 pm           Talk 1: An Overview of the Cold Fusion Story

by Dr. Stephen Cheung, Researcher in Silicon Valley
 

In March 1989, electrochemists Martin Fleischmann and Stan Pons announced their discovery of unaccounted power, which they claimed might come from cold nuclear fusion. The Cold Fusion (CF) quickly gained worldwide attention but was soon attacked as poor science as many others failed to replicate the results to observe extra power.  Investigations have continued into the 1990s till now but CF has been kept out of mainstream sciences.  CF is now more appropriately termed Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR).  Potential applications have enormous impacts to society.

This talk gives an overview of this subject but no position will be taken.

 

Dr. Stephen W. Cheung is VP with a private group in the Silicon Valley.  He is a frequent speaker for HKETA and other events.
Educated in the US, his career began as a research scientist at Stanford University and later with Varian Medical Systems on radiation therapy systems—use of X-rays to treat cancers.  From 2007 to 2013, he was Director of Microwave Systems at Accuray Inc., a Silicon Valley company using robots to deliver radiation therapy. He was also principal investigator of special projects funded by the Dept. of Homeland Security, which resulted in a national award to Accuray in 2013. He holds 5 US patents and is author of two books in microwave technology.


Dr. Cheung worked in Hong Kong from mid-1990s to mid-2000s. He was general manager of the Electronics Division at the Hong Kong Productivity Council and later VP of a consumer electronics manufacturer overseeing new products.  He was consultant for the Hong Kong Science & Technology Park working in the US in 2017.

 

 

8:30pm            Talk 2:  Automotive LED Lighting Driver Design Challenges

This talk introduces the knowledge of LED driver IC requirement for automotive lighting usage.
