David has been awarded the NWO START-UP grant
7 February 2019
David has been awarded the START-UP grant of 800,000 Euros by the science division of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The START-UP programme is intended for newly appointed faculties working in the field of physics and chemistry.
The 4-year project will focus on new ways of controlling gigahertz phonons using integrated photonics. There will be several open PhD and postdoc positions in this project, so if you’re interested please contact David.

OSA Webinar October 4th, 2018
05 September 2018
David will present an OSA Webinar featuring a discussion on “Nonlinear Integrated Microwave Photonics”.
The webinar is scheduled for Thursday October 4th from 10:30 am (EDT)/16:30 (CEST).
In this webinar David will discuss how on-chip nonlinear optical processes can be harnessed for enhanced microwave photonic signal processing. The discussion will introduce basic concepts and requirements of microwave photonic systems and define the range of physical problems that can be addressed with nonlinear optics.
