Aug 16 (Wed) @ 2:00: "Towards Terabit-Scalable Silicon Photonic Datacenter Interconnects," Andrew Netherton, ECE PhD Defense

Date and Time
Henley Hall (HH), Room 1010


In order for high-capacity optical communication links to be adopted at increasingly shorter length scales, they must be able to outperform established electrical interconnects in key metrics such as cost, footprint, and energy consumed per bit. This defense will outline progress on developing  10 Tbps silicon photonic DWDM transceiver systems with local area bandwidth densities exceeding 5 Tbps/mm^2 and capable of sub-pJ/bit energy consumption.


Andrew Netherton is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara, advised by Professor John Bowers.
