TOMORROW! Seminar: "Enhanced light matter interactions in silicon plasmonic platform" by Dr.Uriel Levy 8.8.14/ 1:00pm-2:00pm/ CREOL Room 102

Seminar: "Enhanced light matter interactions in silicon plasmonic platform" by Dr. Uriel Levy
Friday, August 8, 2014 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
CREOL Room 102

Following the ongoing effort for miniaturization of devices and systems, on chip nanoscale photonic and plasmonic based devices and system are becoming a reality. In this talk I describe our recent progress towards the construction of on chip silicon photonics and silicon plasmonics passive and active devices. This effort include the demonstration of plasmonic enhanced silicon photo detectors for the infrared, nanoscale electro optical modulators in silicon, nanoscale confinement of electromagnetic energy and nonlinear interactions of light with hot vapor on a chip. Additionally, I will present an approach for thermal mapping with nanoscale resolution and apply this approach for the characterization of nanoscale photonic and plasmonic devices. Finally, I will share our recent results of on chip spectroscopy and nonlinear interactions using the platform of atomic clad waveguide and plasmonic assisted atomic transitions.

Prof. Uriel Levy joined the Department of Applied Physics, School of Engineering and Computer Science of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI) in fall 2006. Prior to that he spent nearly 4 years as a post graduate researcher at the University of California, San Diego. He holds a Ph.D degree in electrical engineering from Tel Aviv University and BS.c in physics and material engineering from the Technion institute of technology. His major research interests include nanophotonics, with focus on silicon photonics and plasmonics, for applications in communication, imaging, lithography, memory, alternative energy and sensing.
