Research Projects:

O-MEMS accelerometer/gyroscope

This project proposes to fabricate Optical Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (O-MEMS)for optical acceleration measurements. These would allow for more sensitive, accurate, and reliable measurements, exploiting advantages such as the linear relation between the velocity and the Doppler frequency shift, and the high, wavelength-dependent resolution levels achievable.

Silicon on Insulator (SOI) based nanophotonics

Silicon waveguides using SOI substrate allow for the fabrication of extremely compact photonic circuits based on standard CMOS processing. The goal of this project is to simulate, design and characterize several highly attractive optical functions based on SOI waveguiding.

High-speed transistor-VCSELs for Optical Communications

The goal of this proposed project is to develop a revolutionary semiconductor laser transmitter technology, based on the homogeneous integration of photonics and electronics. The new device, a TX-VCSEL, is the integration of a high frequency Heterojunction Bipolar Transistor (HBT) with a Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL).
