Quantum photonics based on nonlinear integrated optics

is the title of the presentation by invited speaker Christine Silberhorn, Professor, Paderborn University, Germany. The IQO group develops novel optical devices and methods for possible future applications in quantum information processing, quantum communication and for fundamental quantum experiments. Exploiting the potential of integrated optical devices enables on the one hand the realization of compact, miniaturized and rugged quantum lights sources and converters.

Does the world need general-purpose programmable photonics?

A presentation by invited speaker Wim Bogaerts, Professor in Silicon Photonics, Ghent University-IMEC / Founder, Luceda Photonics. HE graduated in engineering (applied physics) at Ghent University in June 1998. He joined the Photonics Research Group of Ghent University-IMEC for a PhD, building the design and technology foundations for IMEC’s first silicon photonics technology platform on 200mm CMOS tools. This led to collaborations with tens of partners, growing into a silicon photonics multi-project-wafer service in IMEC, eventually known as ePIXfab. To enable the design of these photonic chips, the PI and his group developed the software package IPKISS, a parametric design framework for photonic circuits.
