We are excited that two papers in our group have been accepted for oral presentations at CLEO 2022, San Jose, California, USA. They are:
David received the ERC Consolidator grant for the project TRIFFIC. He will develop an new class of 3D photonic integrated circuit for actuating stimulated Brillouin scattering in silicon nitride. With this entirely novel circuit, he will show for the first time that interactions between light and sound can also be programmed, just like for electronic circuits.
David will receive 2.55 million euros for his project, the largest Consolidator Grant so far in Twente, and third-largest ever in The Netherlands.
This news also appears at the University of Twente website.
We have a new publication in Optics Letters (OL) titled Self mode-locking in a high-power hybrid silicon nitride integrated laser.
In this paper, Yvan demonstrated the self-mode-locking of a hybrid integrated laser comprising two indium phosphide gain sections and a silicon nitride feedback circuit that filters light using two ring resonators.
Our group, as a partner for the RMIT University in Australia, recently get the Discovery project 2022 funded by Australian Research Council (ARC).
This project will focus on developing new microwave photonic systems based on acousto-electric phonon-amplified SBS. The official announcement of this project at the ARC website can be found in this link.
Gaojian won the best student paper award at the 2021 IEEE Microwave Photonics conference. In his paper he reported world-record high dynamic range for an integrated microwave photonic system. Congratulations Gaojian!
Recently we received a piece of good news that David was elected as a Fellow of the Optica society (formerly OSA)! David brought cakes and celebrated with the whole group. Congratulations David, we are so proud of you!
On November 10th, Gaojian finished his two-year guesting Ph.D. in our group and returned to China. From 2019 to 2021, he conducted many important microwave photonics experiments with this fancy setup and published two journal articles (JLT 2021 and OE 2020). Good luck, Gaojian! You will always be welcomed here!
We are excited that four papers in our group have been accepted for oral presentations at MWP 2021, Italy. They are:
- Mo2.3 – Silicon nitride integrated mode-locked laser with widely tunable line spacing by Yvan
- Tu1.4 – Simultaneous Notch Filtering and Linearization in an Integrated Microwave Photonic Circuit by Gaojian
- We4.2 – Reconfigurable Double-Injection Ring Resonator for Integrated Microwave Photonic Signal Processing by Okky
- We4.4 – Stimulated Brillouin Scattering in Multilayer Silicon Nitride Waveguides by Roel
On August 6th, Roland Adelerhof defended his MSc thesis titled Numerical Investigation of Surface Acoustic Waves in a Silica Ridge Waveguide for Optical Modulation under the supervision of Radius.
Roland presented in a hybrid in-person and online defense. After the defense he received a present from the whole group. Congrats Roland!
