About the Event

The Universe on the grandest scales is a vast network of galaxies. Dotted along an expanding cosmic web, galaxies shine with the collective light of thousands to billions of stars, forming dynamic ecosystems. They allow multiple generations of stars to build new atoms that had never before existed. They foster complex chemistry, even organic chemistry, in an otherwise sterile Universe. One galaxy, the Milky Way, is special to us. Without it, we would not exist. Dr. Bullock will share the story of how it happened, and how, once revealed, the Milky Way led the way to a revolution in our understanding of Universe’s origins, its makeup, and possibly its ultimate fate.

Paul Kollar
CEO, Loki Systems
Paul Kollar started his career in the semiconductor business in Silicon Valley in 1969 with Signetics NSX Semiconductor, and was a member of the teams that produced the first monolithic phase locked loop, the first monolithic timing device, the first monolithic Dolby B noise reduction circuit. Later he led sales and marketing teams that brought forth circuits for the first digital engine control programs, the first merchant market gate arrays, and the first programmable logic devices. Kollar moved to Oregon in 1985 to lead sale marketing of the first electrically erasable programmable logic devices using EE technology at Lattice Semiconductor and later drove sales activity for TriQuint Semiconductor, now Qorvo, Inc., a leader in compound semiconductors and filters for cell phones, radar and satellite communications laser drivers receivers. For the past ten years, Kollar has been an angel investor, board member, and active participant in many Oregon based startups. Kollar has a BS in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College (1967) and a MSEE from the University of Southern California (1968) in solid state electronics. Loki Systems develops and engineers continuous wave laser communications to greatly expand the use of the electromagnetic spectrum. See their website at http://www.lokiscientific.com.
