Learning Outcomes
The creation of affordable high speed optical communications using standard semiconductor manufacturing technology is a principal aim of silicon photonics research. This would involve replacing copper connections with optical fibres or waveguides, and electrons with photons. This course will enable you to: (i) identify trends in optical interconnection and the power of electronic-photonic convergence (ii) explain how the electronic, thermal and mechanical constraints of planar integration promote silicon as the optimal platform for microphotonics (iii) design application-specific photonic devices that take advantage of unique materials processing and device design solutions (iV) compute the performance of micron-scale optically passive/active devices (v) judge the feasibility and impact of the latest silicon photonic devices
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Adapt to new situations
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Generate new research ideas
  • Respect natural environment
  • Demonstrate social, professional and ethical commitment and sensitivity to gender issues
  • Be critical and self-critical
Course Content (Syllabus)
Silicon Microphotonics is a platform for the large scale integration of CMOS electronics with photonic components. This course will evaluate the most promising silicon optical components and the path to electronic-photonic integration. The subjects will be presented in two parts: 1) Context: a review of optical interconnection and the enabling solutions that arise from integrating optical and electronic devices at a micron-scale; and 2) Technology: case studies in High Index Contrast design for silicon-based waveguides, filters, photodetectors, modulators, laser devices, and an application-specific opto-electronic circuit.
