ICFO Seminar



This talk will highlight opportunities for terahertz and microwave science and technology from nonlinear integrated photonic circuits that are becoming increasingly accessible. Two platforms – hybrid silicon-organic and thin film lithium niobate – are emerging as leading platforms since they provide unprecedented design flexibility through custom-cut chip-scale components such as waveguides, resonators and terahertz antennas in combination with low-loss and high-performance nonlinear materials. Their present and future applications in fundamental research concerning metrology, photon generation and arbitrary waveform synthesis will be discussed.
