CMOS Compatible Platforms for Nonlinear Integrated Optics

Professor David Moss

For years all optical signal processing based on integrated nonlinear optics struggled to find killer applications, particularly in telecom, as well as from a performance perspective - the limitations of silicon due to two-photon absorption are well known. In the last half a dozen years or so, new CMOS compatible platforms have solved both - with the birth of micro-resonator based frequency combs, or "micro-combs". I'll give a perspective on their development and future prospects.
