Science Congress 21 Feb 2012 Student Presentations

I will be talking about two presentations of the four that was shared during the congress

Presentation 1

Effect of Stress on Subsequent Performance in Observers during High Fidelity Simulator-based Training

I am sure everybody would think this is a very long title and it is but it has gathered some good information that could probably be used to help people understand stress better. It is mainly based on data gathered on medical trainees going for their training on dummies that can act like a real person. The stress responses are gathered through the means of heart rate and salivary cortisol. The research has shown that repetitive exposure does not decrease the stress responses but repetitive actual simulation does. It shows that if you do more the more confident you get rather than just watching the same thing over and over again. Now all that is needed is to research on how much stress major exams such as PSLE, O’Levels or A’Levels bring to the students and how to manage stress to perform better. I am sure the data for that will be amazing.

Presentation 2

Impact of Transverse Modes Interaction in FIber Amplifiers

In the modern day everyone wants their internet speed to be fast and when it becomes fast they want it to become faster and it goes on. This research project might just be the solution on helping us get out desire for faster speeds. This research aims to make sure that data transmission is amplified to the max without any quality degradation of the data as we want the data to be transmitted fast but also want to receive the data as it once was. It has been shown that multimode fibers have high signal power handling but decreased beam quality but the results show that the beam quality degradation can be compensated by appropriately designed fiber amplifiers. This would not only speed up our internet but also make sure it is clear, the next thing left is to speed it up wirelessly.
