The session will begin with a Plenary talk by Prof. Tobias Kippenberg.
Followed by the Best Student Paper and Best Student Poster Awards announcements, and will close with the Post-Deadline presentations.
The following Post-Deadline papers will be presented:
Rate-adaptive Geometric Shaping for BICM with Off-the-shelf Component Blocks
Dr. Metodi Plamenov Yankov, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark
Geometric shaping with many-to-one mapping is experimentally demonstrated for bit-interleaved coded modulation (BICM) coherent optical fiber system. Up to 0.75 bits/2D symbol of gain are achieved w.r.t. conventional BICM with fixed FEC engine and modulation format for wide range of distances with arbitrarily small rate step.
Record Photon Information Efficiency with Optical Clock Transmission and Recovery of 12.5 bits/photon After 77 dB of Optical Path Loss
Dr. Rene-Jean Essiambre, Nokia Bell Labs, USA
We experimentally demonstrate optical detection at 12.5 bits per incident photon, 9.4 dB higher than the theoretical limit of conventional coherent detection. The signal undergoes 77 dB of optical attenuation before quantum detection followed by optical clock and data recovery.
Surface Acoustic Wave Brillouin Scattering in a Photonic Integrated Circuit
Dr. Moritz Merklein, The University of Sydney Nano Institute (Sydney Nano), School of Physics, The University of Sydney, Australia
Surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices are ubiquitously used for signal processing and filtering, as well as mechanical, chemical and biological sensing, and show promise as quantum transducers. Yet, ways to coherently excite and detect SAWs all-optically and interfaced with photonic integrated circuits are yet elusive. Here, we experimentally show, for the first time, optically excited and detected SAWs in a photonic integrated circuit.
High-speed Physical Random Number Generation Using Self-Chaotic Broad-Area VCSEL
Ms. Hang Lu, Photonics Laboratory, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia
An ultrafast physical random number generator was demonstrated with a data rate of 200 Gb/s by first using a free-running self-chaotic broad-area vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (BA-VCSEL), which promises a compact and low-cost way for parallel chip-integrated high-speed physical random number generator.
Foundry-fabricated Silicon Source of Broadband Polarization Entanglement
Dr. Alexander Miloshevsky, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA
We present a CMOS-fabricated photonic integrated circuit tailored to the generation of ultrabroadband polarization-entangled photons. This fully on-chip source leverages a novel design combining polarization splitter-rotators and a bidirectionally pumped microring resonator to produce high-fidelity polarization Bell states over 115 frequency-bin pairs spaced 38.4 GHz apart.
Ultra Low Density and High Performance InAs Quantum Dot Single Photon Emitters
Dr. Chen Shang, University of California Santa Barbara, USA
High quality InAs quantum dots with ultra-low density of 2×107 cm-2 have been developed on GaAs, demonstrating an almost ideal antibunching of g(2)(0) = 0.015 and short lifetimes of 212 ps and 113 ps for exciton and biexciton emission, respectively.
