HKSTP Thought-Leadership Series Webinar - HKSTP Thought-Leadership Series Webinar: Integrated photonics, future to data communications
9:00am - 11:00am
Zoom (Details will be sent to you after registration at https://hkstp.wufoo.com/forms/hkstp-thoughtleadership-series-webinar/)

Integrated photonics is an emerging branch of photonics in which waveguides and devices are fabricated as an integrated structure onto the surface of a flat substrate, or flat surface. As a result of integration, complex photonic circuits can now process and transmit light in similar ways to how electronic integrated circuits process and transmit electronic signals.


Today, Facebook, Amazon and Google alone run massive cloud computing data centers.  As we store and process more information in the cloud, the demands on our wired and wireless networks multiply.  Using integrated photonics, the centers will be able to handle greater Terabit-scale data rates of traffic with nanosecond switching speeds, while consuming only half as much power, resulting in a dramatic cost savings.


In this webinar, we will give you an overview on integrated Photonics and discuss the latest of advanced materials for integrated Photonics in Hong Kong.

講者/ 表演者:
Prof. John BOWERS
Materials and ECE, University of California, Santa Barbara

Prof. BOWERS is one of the world’s foremost authorities in integrated photonics.  His breakthrough innovation on integrating InGaAsP Laser on silicon opened a new era for integrated photonics. John’s inventions have been widely adopted by industry leaders, including Intel, Juniper Networks and others.

講者/ 表演者:
Prof. Kei May LAU
ECE, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Prof. LAU has pioneered the work on heteroepitaxial growth of InP diode lasers on silicon by MOCVD, paving the way for commercial production of integrated photonics using mainstream CMOS technologies. Kei May is the latest recipient of the prestigious OSA Nick Holonyak Jr. Award for her significant contributions to the field of integrated photonics.
