Spring meeting April 13, 2018

Jonathan Klamkin from the Integrated Photonics Laboratory (iPL) at the University of California Santa Barbara will give a talk entitled, “Integrated Photonic Technologies for Communications and Sensing.”


This talk will describe developments in integrated photonic technologies at the University of California Santa Barbara including silicon photonics, indium phosphide, hybrid integration, III-V on silicon heteroepitaxy, and electronic-photonic integration. Applications for these technologies include telecommunications, data center communications, microwave photonics, free space communications, lidar, and remote sensing. So called photonic integrated circuits (PICs) dramatically reduce the cost, size, weight and power (CSWaP) of photonic systems enabling high-volume applications and deployment on small platforms.

Pacific Northwest Optics Workshop Call for Papers

The third annual Pacific Northwest Optics Workshop will be held at Pacific University on May 5, 2018.  This free workshop is supported by the Optical Society of America (OSA) Columbia Section with cooperation from the OSA Oregon State University and University of Oregon student chapters that hosted the first and second workshops in May 2016 and May 2017.

This is the first call for presentations that will be 15 to 20 minutes in length.  Contributions by universities and industry are encouraged as the intent of the workshop is to foster collaboration between optical researchers and workers in the Pacific Northwest.

Please submit a short abstract that includes the names of presenters, title of the presentation, a short summary and contact information to:  Professor Karl Citek, citekk1@pacificu.edu, Professor James Butler, jjbutler@pacificu.edu, and Eric Udd, ericudd@cgresearchllc.com.

Early submissions are encouraged as the release of the final program is planned to occur in late March or early April.
