Integrated optics

Welcome to the Integrated Optics Group!

We are devoted to the design, fabrication, characterization, and application of novel photonic circuits and novel photonic elements using novel concepts.

High speed, low power consumption, low loss, mass production, low cost, disposable, and portable are nowadays the requirements for the photonic components we will use in everyday life in the near future. Based on highly integrated waveguide optics our activity find applications mainly in sensing and telecommunications.

We think novel concepts for the development of new platforms meeting the requirements of a new generation of photonic applications.

We design the new building blocks of integrated optics for advanced photonic circuits and optical fibers.

We fabricate challenging structure beating the limit of resolution.

We characterize our optical components from the visible to the telecommunication wavelengths.

We apply our devices to everyday life experience.

Members

PhD students:

Somnath Paul – Silicon photonics

The scope of his PhD studies involves design, fabrication and characterization of guided wave silicon nanophotonic components. He uses both Fourier Modal Method (FMM) and Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) methods for his design. He is fabricating his designed components using electron beam lithography (EBL), various etching techniques and atomic layer deposition (ALD) technique. He is also responsible for characterization of his designed components.

Ségolène Pélisset – Applications of strip-loaded slot waveguide

Ségolène has a background in Chemistry, and worked previously in Photovoltaics. Her PhD project is focused on fabrication and characterization of dielectric waveguides and nano-structures for photonic and sensing applications.

Janvit Tippinit – Arrayed waveguide for visible

Janvit is expert in photonic design and his PhD work focuses on the development of an efficient arrayed waveguide in titanium dioxide operating in the visible range of light.

Sampson Andoh – Chromatography enabling SERS

Sampson’s research area and expertise is Biophotonics, separation science, advanced spectroscopy, and analysis of complex liquids.

Lewis Asilevi – Lab-on-fiber with Bloch surface waves

Lewis aim at developing a lab-on-fiber using atomic layer deposition of thin film stacks at the end of a spherical shaped optical fiber and use Bloch surface waves as a probe for sensing.

Marian Baah – Graphene and Graphitic carbon transfer and applications

Marian deals with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) synthesis of graphitic carbon layers, their transfer and characterization.
