From Inverse Design to Implementation of Practical (quantum) Photonics

Combining state of the art optimization and machine learning techniques with high speed electromagnetic solvers offers a new approach to “inverse” design and implement classical and quantum photonic circuits with superior properties, including robustness to errors in fabrication and environment, compact footprints, novel functionalities, and high efficiencies. We illustrate this with a number of demonstrated devices in silicon, diamond, and silicon carbide, with applications from optical interconnects to on chip laser driven particle accelerators and quantum circuits.

2020 Symposia and Special Programming

An Interactive Tutorial on Optimization and Machine Learning for Nanophotonics

Tuesday, 14 July, 12:30 - 14:00

Workshop Presenter:
Jonathan Fan, Stanford University, USA

Inverse design algorithms are essential to pushing the performance limits of photonic systems.  In this interactive tutorial, we will discuss two emergent classes of inverse design.  The first is topology optimization based on the adjoint variables method, and we will discuss its mathematical framework and its application to metasurfaces.  The second is machine learning approaches to optimization, and we will give a detailed overview of discriminative neural networks, which can serve as surrogate electromagnetic solvers, and generative neural networks, which can learn and optimize fine geometric features in complex freeform structures.  We will have plenty of time for questions throughout and include demonstrations, where we will show how to execute these algorithms in practice.  If you would like to actively follow these demonstrations, please download the “GLOnets” and “Metagrating Topology Optimization” software packages at:
