Chip-Scale Nonlinear Integrated Photonics

Ronald ReanoInstructor: Ronald M. Reano, Professor

Research Area: Waveguide integrated photonics, electro-optics and hybrid RF/optical devices

Duration: Half-day

Date/Time: Wednesday, August 7  |  1:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Integrated photonics is the application of thin-film technology to optical circuits and devices for the purpose of achieving high-performance optical systems with advantages in miniaturization, mechanical stability, and economies of scale. On the chip-scale, optical waveguides can exhibit high electric field intensities at low absolute power levels, resulting in efficient devices designed to exploit nonlinear optical effects. The course covers fundamentals, applications, theory and experiements.
