" Fano resonance photonic crystal nanomembranes for silicon photonics"
Abstract: Based on Fano resonance principles in 2D photonic crystal slabs, combined with crystalline semiconductor nanomembrane transfer printing techniques, a wide range of photonic devices were proposed and demonstrated, for heterogeneously integrated silicon photonics and flexible optoelectronics. In this talk, I will review the progresses made in this emerging and exciting area of surface-normal Fano resonance photonics, report recent progresses made by my group, and other groups, on broadband membrane reflector based VCSELs on Si, field enhanced spectrally selective detectors, and ultra-high Q optical filters, based on coupled bi-layer photonic crystals with lattice displacements. Finally, the convergence of nanomembranes and Fano resonance photonic crystals will also be discussed, with potential applications in the areas of 3D multi-functional Si CMOS photonics, flexible, bio-inspired/integrated photonic/electronic systems, and multi-spectral multi-color infrared imaging and sensing systems, etc.
Bio: Professor Weidong Zhou obtained his BS and ME degrees from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. He obtained his PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, majoring in optoelectronics and solid state electronics. Before joining University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), he worked as a lead engineer at CIENA Corporation for three years, working on active photonic devices for WDM optical communication systems. He is currently a Professor of Electrical Engineering at UTA. Dr. Zhou has authored and co-authored over 220 journal publications and conference presentations, including over 35 invited conference talks, 70+ invited and contributed journal publications. Dr. Zhou is also actively serving in various conference committees and editorial boards, and has presented ~40 seminar
talks in many instituites and national labs. Dr. Zhou is a senior member of IEEE, a member of APS, OSA and
SPIE. Dr. Zhou’s major awards include Outstanding Student of Beijing City (Beijing, 1992), Outstanding
Graduates Award (Tsinghua Univ., Gold medal, 1993), Rackham Predoctoral Fellow award (Univ. of Michigan, 2000-2001), IEEE/LEOS Graduate Student Fellowship award (IEEE/LEOS, 2000), Research Awards from UTA College of Engineering (2007, 2008), and College of Engineering Excellence in Research Award (2013).
