Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Dr Huanqing Ye. Silicon photonics is transforming the current technologies, moving from their mature technological platforms towards long-term applications that create more commercial opportunities and can address global issues. Although the technology development started 30 years ago, the lack of silicon light has been a challenge until now. Dr Ye has undertaken years of research to use organic molecular materials to produce light sources that can be directly integrated into silicon photonics, worked between academia and industry, and studied the material systems from the perspectives of physics properties, fabrication techniques and integrability. This talk is to introduce the research direction from studying photon-physics of the materials to developing organic-silicon hybrid amplifiers/lasers and what those molecules can do to promote quantum photonics.
Dr Huanqing Ye
Organisation: University of Manchester
Biography: Dr Huanqing Ye obtained his PhD in physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Queen Mary University of London in 2014. After that, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, meanwhile developing industrial partners in commercialising new materials. In 2018, he returned to London to join Chromosol Ltd, a spin-out company from QMUL, to lead the research and development of organic-integrated silicon lasers until 2022. Dr Ye is now a new DKO fellow at the University of Manchester based in the PSI and the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering from July. His research interest is to develop integrable quantum light sources for silicon photonics technologies and explore new molecular photonic materials.
