On-chip Polarization Control for Silicon Photonics
演讲课题：On-chip Polarization Control for Silicon Photonics
演讲人：周治平Zhiping (James) Zhou
Polarization control is an important issue for integrated photonics since the waveguides and devices are usually strongly polarization-dependent, especially for silicon-on-insulator (SOI) platform. The high index contrast render devices compact but strong polarization dependence occurs simultaneously. To tackle this issue, one solution is using devices which are polarization independent. Another is introducing on-chip integrated polarization diversity system. This talk will take a close look at the recent developments of on-chip polarization manipulation, especially the efforts of our group in developing compact, high performance polarization handling devices for dense silicon photonic integration.
