Abstract

Microelectronics and Photonics are two major world-changing technologies in solid-state physics. A few choices on different semiconductor materials over half century ago started two seemingly parallel paths for them to revolute the modern era. Op-portunities and necessity to develop silicon photonics made them come across each other around onset of the new millennium. Its profound impact is beyond currently dominant transceiver applications and expanding to emerging applications like sens-ing, computing, etc. This talk will give an overview of silicon-based photonic integra-tion R&D in HP Labs, and discuss recent progress to develop an innovative platform with volume production promise and versatile application perspective.

Bio

Dr. Di Liang is currently a senior research manager at Hewlett Packard Labs in Hewlett Packard Enter-prise. He leads the advanced R&D of silicon and compound semiconductor integrated photonics for high-performance computing and emerging applications. His research interests include silicon and III-V pho-tonics, heterogeneous and monolithic integration, and nanofabrication technology. He has authored and coauthored over 200 journal and conference papers and 5 book chapters with over 5000 google cita-tions. He was granted by 45 patents with another 45+ pending. He received his B.S. degree in Optical Engineering from the Zhejiang University, China, and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Uni-versity of Notre Dame, USA. He is currently an associate editor of OSA Photonics Research and IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics. He is a Fellow of OSA and a senior member of IEEE.
