Sci-Tech Seminar: “Optics and Photonics: from micro to nano”

Prof. Ali Serpengüzel

Science Society Activity

5th December 2006


ABSTRACT: “Photonics is one of the fastest developing fields of the past decade, and the same growth trend can be expected for the first couple of decades of this new millennium. Photonics, currently placed at the intersection of Physics, Electrical Engineering, Optical Engineering, and Material Science, is expected to be a full fledged discipline of its own within this time frame. Microphotonics will have an impact that is similar to the one that Microelectronics had over the past decades. In this talk, I will concentrate on the current and future applications of photonics. Then I will concentrate on our research on silicon and silica microsphere cavities.”
