This talk will highlight opportunities for terahertz and microwave science and technology from transduction inside nonlinear integrated photonic circuits that are becoming increasingly accessible. Two platforms - hybrid silicon-organic and thin film lithium niobate – are emerging as leading platforms since they provide unprecedented design flexibility through custom-cut chip-scale components such as waveguides, resonators and terahertz antennas in combination with low-loss and high-performance nonlinear materials..
Ileana-Cristina Benea-Chelmus is an Assistant Professor of Microengineering at the Institute of Electro and Microengineering at EPFL since January 2022. She is also a Research Associate affiliated with the group of Prof. Federico Capasso at Harvard University.
Her laboratory at EPFL tackles questions revolving around quantum sensing and metrology on ultra-fast time-scales and generation and synthesis of far-infrared waveforms at will. For this, we research coherent electro-optic interfaces with the latest integrated photonics technology and nano-optics.
