Paper Abstract

In this presentation we will report on our recent work on new materials that can be monolithically integrated on high-index contrast silicon or silicon nitride photonic ICs to enhance their functionality. This includes graphene and other 2D-materials for realizing compact electro-absorption modulators and non-linear devices, ferroelectric materials for realizing phase modulators and adiabatic couplers for realizing bistable switches.
