Programmable Photonics

We develop complex and low-loss photonic circuits that can be programmed like electronic circuits. We build multifunctional circuits and demonstrate novel RF and photonic signal processing concepts including modulation transformation.

We also explore new mechanisms for efficient tuning of photonic circuits incorporating piezoelectric materials.
