Integrated Photonics
Jaime Cardenas, University of Rochester Tuesday, Oct 3 at 7:00 PM Laboratory for Laser Energetics – East Lobby 240 East River Road, Rochester, NY 14623 Abstract: Integrated photonics, or optics on a chip, offers solutions to many of the challenges common to traditional optics such as element alignment, stability, and size. On-chip photonic devices are...

AR/VR applications continue to be developed.  Anyone who thinks this is going away needs to buy stock in buggy whips. The trendy-creepy glasses flopped. Then the tech giant realized that the future of wearables was in factories and warehouses. The original Glass designers had starry-eyed visions of masses blissfully living their lives in tandem with...

Integrated Photonics could hold the breakthrough. Next month, the worldwide semiconductor industry will formally acknowledge what has become increasingly obvious to everyone involved: Moore’s law, the principle that has powered the information-technology revolution since the 1960s, is nearing its end. The doubling of transistors on a given piece of silicon real estate has already started...

What will integrated photonics look like? In the 21st century, photonic devices, which use light to transport large amounts of information quickly, will enhance or even replace the electronic devices that are ubiquitous in our lives today. But there’s a step needed before optical connections can be integrated into telecommunications systems and computers: researchers need...
