Integrated Photonics (PI)

Integrated Photonics

The field of integrated optics is rapidly advancing due to the recent development in semiconductor and dielectric manufacturing which has enabled the miniaturization of both optical and optoelectronic devices. This group aims at explorations of new material platforms, novel nanofabrication techniques, integrated optical components as well as the development of large-scale photonic circuits with advanced functionalities for applications including optical communications, spectroscopy, laser ranging, optical computing, and quantum information. We also provide content (e.g. panel discussions, webinars, and social media) on current research trends in areas such as optical frequency combs, topological photonics, quantum photonics, microwave photonics. One of the most important goals of this group is to encourage and stimulate interactions between academic research and industry R&D on integrated optics, enabling innovation and fostering technology and product development.

Hot Topics: What's Next in Integrated Frequency Combs?

Where: CLEO/Europe-EQEC

When: 23 June 2021, 13:30 – 14:30 CEST (UTC +02:00)

You are invited to join the OSA Integrated Photonics Technical Group for a panel discussion at CLEO/Europe-EQEC exploring what’s next in integrated frequency combs. The event will offer an overview of the many existing approaches based on active (lasers) and passive (high-Q resonators) devices, using different nonlinearities (Chi2 and Chi3) and spanning various spectral regions (from the visible to the THz). Our featured presenters discuss the physical mechanism of comb generation, device characteristics, and applications as well as highlight exciting related talks at CLEO Europe. Panelists include Miriam Vitiello, CNR; Benedikt Schwarz, TU Wien; Tobias Kippenberg, EPFL; Scott Papp, NIST; and Ingo Breunig, University of Freiburg.
