Integrated Photonics Research, Silicon, and Nanophotonics (IPR)

Integrated Photonics Research, Silicon, and Nanophotonics (IPR)

13 - 16 July 2014
Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa, San Diego, California, USA
Integrated Photonics Research, Silicon, and Nanophotonics (IPR)

IPR is the prime meeting for integration in photonics on all relevant material platforms.  

IPR brings together experts from both academia and industry for an open discussion of cutting-edge research, trends and problems.  IPR 2014 will focus on photonics devices and their integration, nanophotonics and its applications, as well as computational photonics, modelling and novel concepts. 

IPR topics will include photonic integrated circuit design, technology and applications; physics and technology of on-chip active and passive photonic devices; planar waveguide technology, lightwave circuits and systems-on-the chip; theory, modeling and numerical simulation of waveguide and integrated photonic devices and circuits, as well as various topics of computational photonics; integrated diffractive optics and micro-photonics. Also, IPR will continue to cover emerging topics in nano-photonics, including generation, detection, transport and utilization of optical fields on the “nanoscale” as well as the emerging area of research as it relates to various aspects of slow light, including basic physics, implementation and potential use in integrated photonics.

Topic Categories

  • Photonic Devices, Systems & Integration
  • Advanced Device Concepts: Nanophotonics, Novel Materials, Plasmonics, Metamaterials
  • Photonics Theory: Modeling, Computational Techniques and Verification of Theory

Congress Special Events

General Session with Plenary Speakers
Monday, 14 July, 08:30 - 10:00
Monte Carolo & St. Tropez

Yuri VlasovApplications of Integrated Photonics Technology - From Optical Interconnects to Neurophotonics, Yurii Vlasov; IBM Research, USA
Abstract: The IBM Silicon Nanophotonics technology enables cost-efficient optical links that connect racks, modules, and chips together with ultra-low power single-die optical transceivers. I will give an overview of its historical development, technology differentiators, current status and a roadmap.

Norman L. SwensonSignal Processing ASICs for Optical Fiber Communications,
Norman L. Swenson; ClariPhy, USA
Abstract: Signal processing for optical communications has made tremendous strides in the last decade.  This talk gives an overview on recent progress in this area, focusing on commercially available ASICs and ongoing research to advance the state of the art.

SPPCom Symposium: Machine Learning Concepts in Optical Communication Systems
Tuesday, 15 July, 10:30 - 12:30
Portofino Room

The goal of this symposium is to bridge the gap between researchers working in the areas of optical communication and machine learning. More specifically, the symposium will address powerful statistical signal processing methods, used by the machine learning community, and link them to current problems in optical communications.  For more details about this event visit the Symposium webpage.
Joint Poster Sessions
Tuesday, 15 July, 13:30 - 15:00
Terrazza Ballroom

Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper.

Congress Panel Session & Networking Event
