What is a Red Dwarf?

Red Dwarf stars are the smallest and emerging in the universe.

The Red Dwarf virtual events represent the formation and growth of our IEEE Rising Stars Conference. The 2024 IEEE Rising Stars Conference team will be hosting a series of virtual monthly events to show you a glimpse of what we are preparing for the conference. We will share professional development and technical content throughout this series as well as networking opportunities.

Join us on a virtual series of informative and engaging events as we prepare for our large stage at the 2024 IEEE Rising Stars Conference, January 5-7, in Las Vegas at the Tropicana Hotel.

  • Supplying the Fight Against Cancer Using Particle Accelerators at Nusano

    by Leo Szeto

    October 18 --- 6:30 - 7:30 PM Pacific Time
    Radioisotopes have been used in medicine for decades. Doctors use tiny tracers like flashlights to light up areas inside the body, helping them target and treat disease. But today, the supply doesn’t meet the need. Logistical problems with radioisotope production are causing hundreds of thousands of patients in the US from getting the treatments they need to survive. Nusano aims to change the future of the industry by developing a system that will mass-produce radioisotopes at scale, using a breakthrough ion source technology combined with a particle accelerator, turning radioisotopes from scarcity to abundance.
