During the last decade silicon and integrated photonics have changed the way we develop optical circuits, enabling dense integration of complex components. We perform cutting edge research in the field, mainly studying advanced devide for optical signal processing and high-speed communications. Research themes include:

  • Integrated nonlinear optical devices
  • Low loss optical couplers
  • Optical communication devices for Tb/s lines
  • Research on new materials and compounds for advanced functionalities, such as tantalum pentoxide, silicon nitride, aluminium galium arsenide
