Photonic Nanostructure Active Functional Devices and Their Integration

Research Project Outline

Passive technologies for photonic nanostructures have greatly advanced in these years. In this study, we investigate active optical and photonic phenomena in these structures. Particularly we focus on slowlight generation, efficient optical amplifier, negative refraction, nonlinearity enhancement, and dynamic effects in photonic crystals, and their applications to functional devices. We integrate these devices with silicon photonics to provide a breakthrough technology for photonic integration and signal processing.
