SBIR Award Title Enabling Ultra-Compact Photonic Integrated Circuits with Designer Disordered Dielectrics SBIR Award Abstract Until recently, the only known photonic band gap (PBG) structures were photonic crystals consisting of regularly repeating, orderly lattices of dielectric materials. It was generally assumed that crystal order was essential to have a photonic band gap. This longstanding assumption is now known to be false. New PBG structures, characterized by suppressed density fluctuations (hyperuniformity), include disordered structures that are isotropic. This means that light propagates the same way through the photonic solid independ… more Research Opportunity Title: Engineering Scientist Number of Fellows: 1 Open for Applicants: Yes Address 8201 164th Avenue NE, Suite 200 Redmond, WA 98052-7615 Officer Ruth Ann Mullen 425 922 5119 Description Appropriate candidate will matched to one or more of the following research activities at company facilities in either Seattle, Silicon Valley, San Francisco, New York City, or Princeton: Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) design, layout, test, and analysis, in either the silicon photonics, III-V, or hybrid materials systems, working at the component and sub-system levels to develop one or more applications ranging from optical transceivers and sensors to solar photovoltaics, cameras, displays, etc. Massively parallel computational modeling and optimization Continue Reading →
