Research topics
Development of transfer printing for multi-material hybrid integration and its application to nonlinear quantum optical circuits
We will explore hybrid integration technologies which enable the flexible fusion between photonic micro/nano structures made of diverse materials. We will focus ourselves on investigating the transfer printing method, which is in essence a pick-and-place assembly technique. We will demonstrate that the method is applicable to the development of integrated quantum photonic circuits, which often require high precision integration processes. In particular, we are interested in transfer-printing of nonlinear optical media, which will open the way for functioning the quantum photonic circuitry.
