We are glad to invite you to a seminar by Dr. Arkadi Chipouline, titled “Hybrid Photonics for Optical Communication Systems and Sensors”
This talk consists of three parts, reflecting author’s main areas of interests, namely:
Fundamentally oriented research
- Applied research
Several fundamentally oriented problems will be considered in the first part: optical properties of linear metamaterials (plasmonic multipoles, crystal silicon anapoles, and problem of homogenization); optical properties of nonlinear metamaterials (second and third harmonic generation); optical properties of hybrid metamaterials (CNT plus plasmonic metasurface, artificial opal infiltrated by dye molecules, nanolaser/spaser); linear and nonlinear optical properties of single and coupled microresonators.
Second part of the talk deals with the applied research and contains overview of optical fiber amplifier design and system level testing (industry R&D, CORVIS Corp., USA); methods of security communication on physical level; testing of the plasmonic waveguides for information processing; in/out resonator VORTEX generation with MEMS-VCSELs; phase based signal processing. Another applied oriented topic is connected with exosom based bio diagnostic, namely the use of MEMS-VCSELs with novel SERS platforms, micro-containers, and inter cell information exchange processes.
Explosive growing of new knowledge dictates the necessity of upgrading of the educational courses in photonics. Modern challenges as well as possible responses will be considered.
Dr. habil. Arkadi Chipouline is a Group Leader at the Institute for Microwave Engineering and Photonics, Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany. He received his Ph. D. in Laser Physics and Engineering at the Moscow Physical Technical University in 1995. He acquired his international experience during his work at University of Salt Lake City (USA), Telecommunication Industry in the USA (CORVIS Corporation, recipient of an Award of Excellence), and at the Friedrich-Schiller University of Jena, Germany. Dr. Chipouline’s current areas of research interests include various application of hybrid photonic structures (nanoplasmonics, optical metamaterials, and microresonators combined with quantum dots, carbon nano tubes etc.) in fiber telecom and optical sensors; laser physics und optoelectronics, optical waveguides, optical amplifiers, nonlinear optics etc. More academically oriented interests are focused in area of fundamentals of electrodynamics. His teaching interest is in elaboration of modern theoretical and practical courses in response to the modern scientific and technological challenges.
