"III-V-on-silicon Photonic Integrated Circuits for Optical Communication and Sensing"

Gunther Roelkens, Associate Professor, Ghent University, Belgium

May 12th (Thursday), 1:30pm
Engineering Science Building (ESB), Room 2003

Gunther Roelkens In this talk I will present the research carried out in the Photonics Research Group of Ghent University / imec on silicon photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for optical communication and sensing. This includes all-silicon PICs comprising high speed optical modulators and photodetectors based on the integrtion of Ge, the integration of III-V sources through die-to-wafer bonding and hetero-epitaxial growth addressing a broad wavelength range from 850 nm to 2.5 um, and the co-integration with electronic integrated circuits for advanced silicon photonic transceivers.

About Gunther Roelkens:

Gunther Roelkens received a degree in electrical engineering from Ghent University, Belgium, in 2002 and a PhD from the same university in 2007, at the Department of Information Technology (INTEC), where he is currently associate professor. In 2008, he was a visiting scientist in IBM TJ Watson Research Center, New York. He is assistant professor at Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. His research interest includes the heterogeneous integration of III-V semiconductors and other materials on top of silicon waveguide circuits and electronic/photonic co-integration. Recently he finished a European Research Council project (MIRACLE) on integrated mid-infrared photonic integrated circuits.
