Technical Program

The topics to be discussed in this year's Summer Topicals span a broad range in emerging and hot areas of research, from materials to devices, integrated photonics, and systems.

  • The IPUV topic will cover recent advances in photonic integrated circuits in the UV and visible spectra, with a broad range of applications in biochemical sensing, Raman spectroscopy, photo-ionization, integrated spectrometers, nonlinear optics, LIDAR, and high density optical recording. 

  • The IPMI topic will bring together photonic engineers, materials scientist, optical physicists, and application experts to present the recent development of mid-infrared (~ 2-20 m) photonic materials and mid-infrared device design and integration.

  • The LEIN topic aims to garner recent advances in nanophotonic devices ranging from nanolasers, detectors to modulators for chip-level optical interconnects and will bring together diverse specialists to estimate bit energies of individual devices with integrated photonics specialists who can look at architectures to utilize such devices.

  • The OSDC topic will discuss the latest research and development in optical switching and memory technologies and address a series of challenges with respect to memory bandwidth, energy and speed requirements for the next generation high performance computers.

  • The PR5G topic will bring together global participants from both industry and academia and present advances in integrated microwave photonics technology, mm-wave and THz wireless digital/analog radio over fiber systems, radio-optical digital signal processing, and multi-RAT networking.

  • The scope of the QNW topical meeting includes novel application and functionalities of quantum networks; architectures and protocols for a distributed quantum network comprising multiple quantum nodes; high capacity quantum channels including those utilizing higher-level alphabets and hyper-entanglement; entanglement creation, maninpulation and distribution to remote nodes; studies of physical mechanisms of entanglement decoherence; quantume nodes and quantum memories based on neutral atoms, ions, and vacancy-centers in novel materials as well as the interfaces between them.
