Integrated Communication Photonic Devices

Date: 2020-12-04
Time: 16:00
Venue: Tencent Meeting
Speaker: Dr. Ping Ma

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, Switzerland


Mobile internet, cloud services and Internet of Things drive optical networks adoption as the mega data centers are poised for significant growth to support the market. The relentless growth of data traffic raises the need for ultra-high-speed networks towards operations at 100 Gb/s transmission bit rate and beyond. Currently, the development of photonic device technologies lags significantly behind the imperative demands on the device performance, particular the bandwidth and efficiency. A major effort is underway to build high-speed, compact, and energy efficient photonic devices and communication systems by way of a chip-scale device integration technology. To this end, it is crucial to introduce and effectively combine advanced functional materials with innovative device architectures. The talk will present the recent efforts on the development of high-performance communication photonic devices such as electro-optical modulators and photodetectors.

Brief CV of Dr. Ping Ma: 

Dr. Ping Ma is currently a senior researcher and lecturer at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich), Switzerland. He received the Doctor of Science degree from ETH Zurich in 2012. He had a research stay at Oracle Labs in the USA, where he performed industrial research and product development on silicon photonics-based optical transceivers and interconnects. His current research focuses on the development of advanced functional materials and the enabled innovative devices for next-generation classical and quantum information and communication technologies, which is carried out in collaboration with both academic and industrial partners. He has authored more than forty scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, including research articles in Nature Nanotechnology and Nature Materials.
