Silicon Photonics and Guided-Wave Optics
Council Canada (CN)
The focus of this topical meeting is to explore new trends and applications, particularly, in the field of silicon photonics, but also in guided-wave optics and related areas. All applications are welcome, ranging from devices for data centre applications to Mid Infrared (MIR) sensing, and from LIDAR to Quantum Photonics. New developments on fibre and planar waveguide lasers, fibre non-linearities, nanophotonic materials and devices will also be welcome. We particularly welcome emerging applications such as Artificial Intelligence, 3D Imaging, and Programmable Photonics to mention but three.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
design, simulation, modelling and fabrication of optical interconnects
optical on chip routing architectures and technologies and related design concepts for high speed
low power photonic integrated circuits (PICs)
CMOS-compatible optical sources and detectors
optimization of light emission and absorption for data processing using materials such as SiGe, SiN, TaO5, III/IVs, etc.
advanced monolithic and hybrid processing techniques for the fabrication of photonic structures
devices and strategies for the advancement of PICs in silicon and other materials, including advances in testing and packaging
