Our research is out on Nature Photonics!

In our latest publication, we determine the optimal bidirectional orthogonal communication channels through arbitrary and scattering optical systems using photonic processors. The processors consist of meshes of electrically tuneable Mach–Zehnder interferometers in silicon photonics. The meshes can configure themselves based on simple power maximization or minimization algorithms without external calculations…

Our research was published in Science

From our department’s news outlet: Now we know how to realize and train photonic chips that use light to implement highly efficient neural networks. The result, enabling the growth of artificial intelligence systems and, to a broader extent, systems requiring very high computational capacity, has just been published in the Science in…

Our new paper on an integrated optical power monitor is out!

Our article “Inline Photothermal Surface Plasmon Detector Integrated in Titanium Dioxide Waveguides“, has just been published in the IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics. We report on the realization of an in-line Surface Plasmon Detector (SPD) that exploits the photothermal effect to monitor the optical power in a titanium dioxide (TiO2)…
