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.
