Solutions and Approaches to Break Opto-electronic Device Limitations

Starting from the first talk on general opto-electronic device limit and integration for silicon-based devices, presented by Thomas Koch here at the Nanophotonic Devices Incubator, the potential solutions for both the length minimization and power minimization were addressed. For example, Si photonics with high-index contrast and precision fabrication allow energy per bit to be further reduced...

The OSA Photovoltaics Meeting - Optics and Energy Needs

I have worked at Swinburne University of Technolgy in Australia as a senior scientist in the field of nanophotoncs solar cell since 2010. For people who are not familar with this field, basically we design nanostructures and nanomaterials to allow more light going into solar cells and help the light to be trapped inside the cells. This way, more electricity can be harvested from solar cells...

Nanophotonics at CLEO:2014

Some sessions of interest to nanophotonics at CLEO:2014.Sensing for chiral molecule using metasurface Dr. Yang Zhao (FM3K.6) have an interesting talk. As there is serious demand to determine the chirality of molecules for achieving enantiomer-pure chiral drugs, many researches have been carried out to use optical chirality for sensing chiral molecules. However, when the amount of molecules is...

Perspective views from Industry & Government on Nanophotonics

Similar to the success of dense electronic component integration towards creating VLSI circuits, the photonic and optoelectronic industry is following similar integration schemes, terming the name “photonic integrated circuits” (PIC). However, all-Silicon PIC cannot currently complete all the functions. Alternatively, III-V platform, such as InP material system, still occupies a...
