ROAM Project at META 2017: Invited Talks

Two invited talks were given by UNIVBRIS and UoG teams at The 8th International Conference on Metamaterials, Photonic Crystals and Plasmonics - META 2017 (25-28 July 2017 at the Songdo Convensia, Incheon – Seoul, South Korea).

The talk given by UNIVBRIS team, "Exploiting spin-orbit interactions via engineered transverse spin angular momentum in photonic integrated circuits,” presented the experimental investigation of transverse spin angular momentum engineering in the evanescent fields of whispering-gallery modes in integrated micro-ring resonators. The spin-orbit interactions of light in the transversely confined fields and the cylindrical vector vortices in this structure are exploited for the manipulation of light within the degrees of freedom of optical angular momenta.

The second invited presentation was “Integration Technologies for Complex Photonic Circuits”, given by UoG members. Future photonic integrated chips for quantum experiments will demand several thousand of components and a number of diverse functionalities integrated on the same chip. The talk discussed some of the challenges faced by the up-scaling of photonic integrated chips with a particular emphasis on robust component trimming and heterogeneous integration of III-V devices on a silicon-on-insulator platform.
