Electrical Engineering Seminar: Weidong Zhou
"Nanomembranes for Silicon Photonics and Flexible Optoelectronics"
Weidong Zhou, Professor of Electrical Engineering, UTA
In this talk, I will review major progresses made over the last few years on this emerging and exciting field, with focuses on PDMS transfer printed photonic crystal nanomembrane lasers on Si (Nature Photonics, Sept. 2012) for Si photonics, Fano resonance photonic crystal membrane reflectors and filters, and high speed flexible RF electronics (Nature Scientific Report, Feb. 2013), etc. The convergence of nanomembranes and Fano resonance photonic crystals and metamaterials will also be discussed, with potential applications in the areas of 3D Si CMOS photonics, flexible, bio-inspired/integrated photonic/electronic systems, and multi-spectral multi-color infrared imaging and sensing systems, etc.
