Talks and conference papers

Loredana Maria Massaro from C2N – Centre de Nanosciences et de Nanotechnologies gave a talk at AMO and ELD seminar on photonic crystal based frequency comb generators based on III-V materials integrated on SOI. Loredana had a few months secondment at AMO designing and fabricating SOI devices.

ESR3, Francesco Talenti, will give a talk at the “Minisymposium for Young Researchers 2022” (21 July 2022) in the field of nonlinear optics and photonics. The title of his talk will be “Inverse design of a flat dispersion Photonic Crystal cavity “. More details about the event are available here.

Abstract of the talk: Contrarily to rings or disks, the resonances of Photonic Crystal (PhC) cavities are not naturally equally-spaced in the frequency domain. Here we present a technique to systematically design PhC resonators with a tailored disperion curve, with the objectives of developing an Optical Frequency Comb (OFC) PhC-based technology, miniaturization of parametric sources for quantum technologies and mode-locked lasers.

ESR2, Loredana Maria Massaro, presented the paper “Design of III-V/ Silicon Platform for Optical Frequency Comb Generation” at the conference Optique Dijon 2021

ESR2, Loredana Maria Massaro, participated as speaker at the TONIQ (“NanophoTOnique Non linéaire et Information Quantique”) Group Meeting held on the 15/02/2021

ESR2, Loredana Maria Massaro, presented her project at  ePIXfab, within the ePIXfab Silicon Photonics Summer School. The summer school was held online, on 15-19 June 2020

ESR3, Francesco Rinaldo Talenti, gave the paper “Control of Kerr Cavity Soliton Combs by Chirped Pumping” at the OSA “Non-Linear Photonics” meeting at “Advanced Photonics Congress 2020”. This took place on July 13-14, 2020. Initially planned in Montreal, the conference was held remotely due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
