Silicon & Diamond photonics

08.03.2016 Silicon photonics
Silicon is the material of choice for the microelectronics industry. However, recent developments of the engineering of the optical properties of silicon have made it a very interesting material for optical signal processing. Additionally, Silicon photonics is CMOS compatible which enables the possibility to exploit the mature technology of the microlelectronics industry and to co-integrate optical and microlelectronics processing. Thus, silicon integrated photonics could pave the way to very high-data rate and cheap optical transmitter and receiver modules for the mass market of the internet, data centers and even for chip-to-chip and on-chip communications. At the same time, the confinement of the waves and the mix with other materials have led to very interesting properties which enable integrated frequency combs, optical signal processing, strong reduction of the interaction length and a lot of other very new applications. We have assembled a fantastic programme of speakers who will give an overview and an insight into this very exciting field of research.

09.03.2016  Diamond Nanophotonics
Diamond – is this the material of the next decades? It possesses remarkable physical and chemical properties, high mechanical hardness, large Young´s module and high thermal conductivity. But now it enters also the quantum optics´ stage! Diamond is transparent from the ultraviolet to the infrared spectral range, has a high refractive index and it may contain a variety of defect centers. These properties make diamond a very interesting material for many applications, especially exciting is the field of quantum information and quantum optics. In the center of these modern applications are color centers, mainly nitrogen-vacancy and silicon-vacancy single centers suitable for single photon operation and manipulation. In this workshop, top level presentations will be given on the fields of diamond wafer production, quantum optics in diamond, diamond nanostructures, diamond and metrology, integration of defect centers in diamond, light and matter interactions and the interfacing of color centers in diamond.
