Nanotechnologies to enable realistic silicon photonics applications

OIDA’s Huff Discusses Nanophotonics in Keynote Address at NGC2007

Tempe, AZ | Posted on March 16th, 2007

According to OIDA Vice President of Marketing and Business Development David Huff, emerging nanophotonics technologies offer the potential to greatly expand the use of optoelectronics in consumer and computing applications. Huff presented the keynote address at the Nano-Giga Challenges 2007 Conference at Arizona State University. The conference addressed developments in nanotechnology as it applies to electronics, optics, sensors, chemical, thermal, and bio-medical applications, and was well attended by an international audience.

"When you engineer light and materials at the quantum level, you can shake the bounds of classical optics and physics," said Huff. "By enabling the development of high bandwidth, high-speed and ultra-small optoelectronics components, nanophotonics is allowing us to change the realm of the possible." Topics addressed by Huff included:

* Markets for nanophotonic technology, led by consumer and computer applications;
* Key advances, such as nanowaveguides, which may offer new life to existing silicon photonics applications; and
* New quantum effect devices, such as light ‘freezing', which will offer unique optical processing capabilities which can't be implemented with any technology today.

Huff pointed out that significant hurdles remain before these technologies become mainstream. Despite the fact that silicon fabrication techniques can be applied, the assembly of these devices is still quite expensive; defects in the devices must be addressed to fix loss and performance issues; and less expensive techniques must be developed for device integration and interfaces. "Nanophotonics offers many more capabilities than I was able to address in my talk, including sensor, bio-medical, optical refrigeration, displays, and solar energy," said Huff. "It will be fascinating to see which applications pan out in the market."
