ERC Consolidator grant for David Marpaung

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.

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.

David has been awarded the prestigious NWO Vidi grant

David has been awarded the Vidi grant of 800,000 Euros by the applied and engineering science division of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

The 5-year project will focus on developing novel signal processing circuits based on coherent light and sound interactions. The official announcement of the grant in at the NWO website can be found in this  link.
