New funded project from ARC

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.

A farewell to Gaojian

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!

Four oral presentations at MWP 2021

We are excited that four papers in our group have been accepted for oral presentations at MWP 2021, Italy. They are:

Congratulations all!

Optical spectrum and transmission of the Vernier filter (Yvan)
Experiments setup (Okky)
Operating principles of the notch filter and linearization (Gaojian)
Optical and acoustic profiles of the ADS and SDS waveguides (Roel)

Roland Graduated

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!

Inaugural May-On Tjia lecture at ISMOA 2021

David delivered the inaugural May-On Tjia lecture at the International Symposium on Modern Optics and Its Applications (ISMOA 2021). This is a lecture to commemorate Prof. Tjia, who is a giant and influential figure for Indonesian physics community. In this 45 minute lecture, David recalled some past experiences with Prof. Tjia  and went on to discuss state-of-the-art of programmable photonic circuits. You can watch the recording of the lecture here.
