  • Final Examination of Chi Xu for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Optics and Photonics

    Virtual

    Dissertation Title: “ High Speed Modulation Characteristics of Semiconductor Nanolasers and Coupled Ring Laser Systems ” Abstract: Optical communication systems require light sources that can be modulated at very high frequency. However, the modulation bandwidth of laser diodes is typically limited by an intrinsic value, its relaxation resonance frequency. In order to circumvent this limitation, a number of methods have …

  • CREOL Spring Colloquium Series: Jelena Vuckovic - Scalable Photonics: An Optimized Approach

    Virtual

    Abstract: Classical and quantum photonics with superior properties can be implemented in a variety of old (silicon, silicon nitride) and new (silicon carbide, diamond) photonic materials by combining state of the art optimization and machine learning techniques (photonics inverse design) with new fabrication approaches. In addition to making photonics more robust to errors in fabrication and temperature, more compact, and …
