Pushing the boundaries of silicon photonics
Author(s): Michal F. Lipson

Paper Abstract

Photonics on chip enables monolithic integration of optics and microelectronics for applications such as optical interconnects in which high data streams are required in a small footprint. I will provide an overview of recent advances and challenges in the field. As an example of silicon photonics unique capabilities, I will describe ultrahigh speed devices that enable one to change the structure’s optical properties on a time scale that is shorter than the photonic time of flight, leading to novel applications such as optical isolators on a silicon chip.
