Andy Boes - Photonic Integrated Circuits and their applications

Photonic integrated circuits are transitioning from speculative research to a mature industrially scalable platform supporting integration of active and passive optical components on a single chip. This transition is transforming our daily lives as Photonic integrated circuits provide a solution to the ever-increasing demand for internet traffic and replace bulky and energy inefficient components in applications such as spectroscopy, secure communication, sensing and microwave photonics.

In this presentation Andy will provide a brief overview of photonic integrated circuits in general, as well as some of the building blocks that make up these photonic integrated circuits, which have been developed during his time at RMIT University. Andy will also present two example projects, which aim to use these photonic integrated circuits for the next generation devices for inertial navigation and structural health monitoring.
