Electrostatic Discharge for Nano Photonics
free download

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) occurs in almost all aspects of our lives. Lightning is an example of ESD that typically occurs during thunderstorms. To prevent building structures from being damaged, lightning rods are often used to preferentially shunt the lightning strike

Controlling phonons and photons at the wavelength scale: integrated photonics meets integrated phononics: supplementary material
free download

We focus on cavity optomechanics in this section although much of it applies to electromechanics as well. The dynamics of an optomechanical system involves taking into account the interplay between the coupled acoustic and optical degrees of freedom in a

Integration of quantum dots (QDs) with photonic waveguides and cavities would allow on- chip studies and applications of cavity quantum electrodynamics and the development of integrated photonic circuits for handling non-classical states of light. We develop such

1.25 (Communication) Development of a new platform for quantum photonics applications
free download

Very recently, the interest for quantum technologies by the scientific community and industry has strongly increased. Different types of implementations have been proposed as a practical implementation for a quantum bit. Our interest lies in using single photons and
