Melloni plenary session at
SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics 2015

On Tuesday 14 April 2015, Professor Melloni will held a plenary session at SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics 2015 in Prague.


“On the Complexity Limits of Photonic Integrated Circuits”.

Photonic technologies enable today to generate, manipulate and detect photons by means of miniaturized optical devices integrated onto the same optical chip. However, compared to electronics, the Achilles’ heel of photonics is the lack of essential tools enabling the aggregation of hundreds of optical functional elements into large-scale circuits. The talk focuses on the complexity limits and how to boost the photonic architectures. Non-perturbative probes, algorithmic intelligence, switching materials and techniques are the way to turn photonic devices into controllable systems.
