CM Seminar: Joyce Poon: Visible-light Silicon Integrated Photonics for Future Computing

November 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Joyce Poon – University of Toronto

Title: Visible-light Silicon Integrated Photonics for Future Computing

Abstract: The emerging demands of computing require hardware advances to realize new types of computing architectures and interfaces. Foundry silicon photonics leverages the maturity of microelectronics manufacturing to fabricate photonic integrated circuits. Today, silicon photonics is mostly used in the short-wave infrared spectrum for optical communications. I will discuss how foundry silicon photonics in the visible spectrum is an enabling technology for future computing, addressing applications such as displays, neural implants, and quantum computing.

Biography: Joyce Poon is the Managing Director at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto, and an Honorary Professor in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Technical University of Berlin.  She currently serves as a Director-at-Large for Optica (formerly the Optical Society, OSA). She and her team specialize in integrated photonics on silicon.  Prof. Poon obtained the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Caltech in 2007. She is a Optica Fellow and a Fellow of the IEEE.
