Silicon Photonics Technology for Next-Generation Connectivity and Sensing

June 5, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Speaker’s Bio: Shankar Kumar Selvaraja is Prof. Ramakrishna Rao chair professor at the Centre for Nano Science and Engineering in the Indian Institute of Science Bangalore. He is also the Chair of the National Nano fabrication Centre (NNfC) at IISc. Before joining IISc in 2014, he was with imec Belgium. He received his PhD for his work on wafer-scale fabrication technology for Silicon photonic integrated circuits from Ghent university-imec Belgium. He is an alma mater of Bharathiar University, College of Engineering Guindy and University of Twenty the Netherlands. He has spent over 15 years in Silicon and integrated photonic developing state-of-the-art CMOS process and device technology for high-speed optical interconnect and sensing application. He has published over 200 research articles in international journals and conferences and six international patents. He is a recipient of the DST-SERB Early Carrier Researcher Award and Visvesvaraya young faculty research fellowship award from the ministry of electronics and information technology. His current area of research includes silicon photonic IC enabled high-speed optical connectivity technology, integrated photonic based on-chip sensors, neuromorphic photonics and quantum photonic integrated circuit.

Abstract: Silicon photonics is a disruptive technology that is changing the technology landscape in communication and sensing. The ability to confine light in sub-micron space offers an excellent opportunity to manipulate light that was unimaginable. Silicon photonics now covers a wide range of CMOS compatible material platform. In this talk, I will present a demonstration of photonic integrated circuit enabled connectivity and sensing. In the first part, the talk will cover high-speed photonic device and circuit for next-generation connectivity demonstration. Furthermore, potential material and device platform to realise neuromorphic photonic circuit will be presented. In the second part of the talk, a comprehensive application of photonic IC for on- chip sensing will be presented, including exciting ways to realise heterogeneous integration of sensors platforms.
