Session Chair: Pavel Cheben, National Research Council, Canada
Co-Chairs: Andrew Knight, McMaster University, Canada
This session focuses on the physics, design and simulations of optical and photonic structures, devices and systems. It is intended to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas on optics, photonics and optoelectronics theory, design, simulation and verification techniques at different levels, including material properties, components, devices, systems, fabrication, and applications. The session covers a wide range of topics in photonic theory, simulation and design, including: waveguide photonic bandgap engineering, microcavities, passive and active photonic devices, sensors, diffractive and subwavelength structures, integrated optical circuits for datacom, WDM and coherent communication systems, light sources, photodetectors, modulators, amplifiers, wavelength converters, switches, couplers, resonators, filters, free-space optics, optical interconnects, optics for aerospace and defense, photonic design automation, manufacturing and verification tools, and novel algorithms and photonic CAD software for photonics and integration with electronics.
