Welcome to CLEO: 2013!

By Dominic Siriani | Posted: 10 June 2013

After many hours of flights, I finally arrived in San Jose, CA for this year’s CLEO meeting. I made my way downtown and shortly headed over to the Convention Center to pick up my registration materials. Conference program and other goodies in hand, I headed back to my hotel to dive into the details of what’s in store for this week.

Espresso for the Brain – CLEO: 2013

By Frank Kuo | Posted: 21 May 2013

Being an active OSA young professional comes with additional bonuses once in a while. This time, I was happily summoned as “scientific paparazzi” to sneak into one of the committee meetings for CLEO: 2013 happening in the DC metropolitan area. Digging for insider info on CLEO’s hot topics and from CLEO: 2013 committee chairs and members –  as they reviewed, scored and sessioned all the CLEO papers was the top mission.

A Bit on Silicon Photonics

By Dominic Siriani | Posted: 11 March 2013

A holy grail of photonics and electronics is the integration of silicon CMOS technology with electro-optical devices. In general, this is challenging because mature electro-optic components are made in compound semiconductors, such as GaAs and InP. Development of hybrid integration, where compound semiconductor photonics are combined with silicon electronics using material bonding techniques, is being pursued currently and is a promising approach. Another more direct method, however, is to try to make photonic devices from silicon directly. This is an appealing idea, since silicon is relatively cheap and the microelectronics industry has built up a large technology infrastructure around it.

Novel lasers shine and explore the new scientific frontiers – part I.

By Frank Kuo | Posted: 16 February 2013

To probe new scientific frontiers, we need new technology. On the other hand, the advance of the technology relies on the solid scientific foundation. Countless examples have shown us that science and technology evolve together to give us wonders and a better understanding of the universe and nature. Looking back at 2012, similar stories happened in the laser and optics arena – Lasers are extending the working wavelengths into shorter (X-rays) and longer (THz) domain and probe new scientific frontiers. With this advance, we can have a better grasp of our nature.
