Sensing and biosensing enabled by silicon photonics: opportunities and challenges
Prof. Roel Baets, Ghent University, Belgium
In the past 10 years silicon photonics has matured to an industrially viable technology for high datarate transceivers for telecom and data center applications. In this presentation the question will be explored: what opportunities does the technology offer for sensing applications, in biosensing, in medical instruments? A variety of proof-of-concept examples will be discussed along with the associated scientific challenges.
The Distinguished Lecturer Series (DLS) follows a colloquium format for a broad audience and will be followed by a reception to provide an opportunity for meeting the speaker.
