Nano-Optoelectronic Devices

  • Nanoscale (Sub-Wavelength) Semiconductor Lasers

Students:  Min Kim
With metal interconnects being a bottleneck for integrated circuits in various aspects such as capacitance and speed, there has been much interest in replacing them with optical interconnects.  However, the integration of optoelectronic and electronic components require a coherent light source whose dimensions are comparable to each other.  Much attention has, therefore, been given recently to reducing the size of such light source to sub-wavelength dimensions.  In this project, we investigate nanoscale gain and optical cavity structures.
