ABOUT THE CALENDAR
Integrated photonics for communications and computing
Seminar: Departmental | December 10 | 2-3 p.m. | Cory Hall, 521 (Hogan Room)
Joyce Poon, Asst. Prof., Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto
Integrated photonics is transforming rapidly because of the need for energy-efficient yet high capacity communication systems, which has been synchronized with the growing availability of sophisticated fabrication processes. The convergence of computing and communication (e.g., the cloud computing paradigm) is driving significant opportunities for innovations in integrated photonics. In this talk, I will describe my groups research in integrated photonic devices in silicon, hybrid silicon, and metal-dielectrics. I will describe our work on silicon microring modulators, approaches to low-loss and variation-tolerant photonic circuits, and active plasmonics. The motivation for our research is to demonstrate > 1 Tb/s communication using as few wavelengths as possible.
