报告题目：Integrated Chalcogenide Glass Photonics and Their Applications
报告摘要：Chalcogenide glasses have emerged as a promising material candidate for integrated photonics given their wide infrared transparency window and excellent linear and nonlinear optical properties. Through capitalizing on their unique low temperature monolithic integration capacity, we have developed a substrate-blind photonic integration technology to enable multifunctional, multi-layer photonic integration on virtually any techinically important substrate platforms. Our initial works of high performance chalcogenide glass photonic devices on infrared crystal and polymer substrates have already showed the unique advantages to apply our technology in mid-infrared on-chip sensing and flexible photonics applications. With novel devices design and functional materials integration, we believed integrated chalcogenide glass photonics would have great potential in other emerging photonics applications.
