Abstract :

This lecture discourses on a newly emerging frontier technology that we call VLSI (Very Large Scale Integrated) micro/nanophotonics. It is a new field of optical micro/nano-scale technology rapidly evolving to complete the unfinished optical information revolution. The lecture discusses the science and engineering of micro/nano-photonics and integration that can lead to VLSI photonic devices of generic and application-specific nature. The micro/nano-photonics technology is aimed to be compact, high-speed and low-powered for broad-based 21st century green and sustainable IT/BT/NT applications. The system consists of arrays of micro/nano-scale optical wires, devices and circuits on chips to perform the functions of sensing, switching, modulating, processing, transporting, routing, and distributing optical signals. The optical components include micro/nano-scale light sources, waveguides, detectors, switches, modulators, sensors, couplers, filters, resonators, photonic crystal devices, plasmonic devices, and quantum structures, made of polymer, silicon, optical and other materials. We discuss scientific and technological issues and challenges for the miniaturization and integration of micro/nano-scale photonic devices for high-density integration and application. New perspectives and visions will be discussed along with the historical perspectives of the electrical technology.
