Abstract: In this lecture, the speaker reviews recent advances in heterogeneous silicon photonic integration technology and components and describe progress in silicon photonic integrated circuits. Techniques for laser integration and the impact of active silicon photonic integrated circuits could have on interconnects, telecommunications and silicon electronics are reviewed. A variety of materials are being heterogeneously integrated, including arsenides for short wavelength lasers, phosphides for infrared lasers, LiNbO3 for nonlinear applications and YIG for isolators and circulators. One application that has been recently demonstrated is a 2.56 Tbit/s transceiver that involved integrating 64 DFB lasers with 64 EAMs and 64 photodetectors together with 16 AWGs.
Prof John Bowers received his MS and PhD degrees from Stanford University. After working for AT&T Bell Laboratories and Honeywell, he moved to University of California at Santa Barbara in 1987. He is currently the Fred Kavli Distinguished Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering and also the Distinguished Professor in Materials at UCSB.
Prof Bowers is a world-leading researcher in the areas of silicon photonics, optoelectronics, energy efficiency and the development of novel low power optoelectronic devices for the next generation of optical networks. His research interests include silicon photonics and integrated circuits, fibre optic networks, thermoelectrics, high efficiency solar cells, and optical switching.
Prof Bowers was elected a member of the US National Academy of Engineering and the US National Academy of Inventors. He was also elected a fellow of the IEEE, OSA and the American Physical Society. He received numerous awards including the IEEE Photonics Award, OSA Tyndall Award, the OSA Holonyak Prize, the IEEE LEOS William Streifer Award and the South Coast Business and Technology Entrepreneur of the Year Award. He has published eight book chapters, 600 journal papers, 900 conference papers and has received 54 patents. He and his co-workers received the EE Times Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Award for Most Promising Technology for the hybrid silicon laser in 2007.
