CAST-DC &NIS 2018 Seminar “Integrated Photonics”
Time: Monday July 16th, 2018, 7:00pm-9:00pm.
Location: BUCM US Center for Chinese Medicine
9600 Blackwell Road, Suite 300, Rockville, MD 20850
Title: Integrated Nano-Photonic Devices for Advanced Applications
Distinguished Speaker: Prof. Hong Tang
Llewellyn West Jones, Jr. Professor
Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics & Physics
Ph.D.: California Institute of Technology
B.Sc.: University of Science and Technology of China (USTC, Hefei)
A panel of 5x scientists will be invited and announced on site, to facilitate discussion.
Recent advanced researches utilize integrated photonic circuits to study photon-photon, photon-mechanics and photon-spin interactions. In areas related to quantum information science, my group’s recent contributions include: 1) waveguide integrated superconducting nanowire detectors; 2) integrated AlN nonlinear photonic circuit for high fidelity photon pair generations; 3) on-chip quantum optical frequency converter; 4) integrated microwave-to-optical converter. We will discuss each kind of nano-devices and their advanced applications.
FREE registration is required.
Dress Code: Business Casual

The Chinese Association for Science and Technology – Washington DC Chapter (CAST-DC) was founded on Dec 11, 1993, as a not-for-profit and non-political organization registered in the USA. It is a local chapter of The Chinese Association for Science and Technology (CAST-USA). CAST-DC Chapter includes over 1, 000 members from famous research organizations such as NIH, FDA, NASA, NIST, JHU, UMCP as well as local high-tech companies in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
The missions of the CAST-DC are to promote academic exchanges and professional development of CAST-USA members; to serve as a bridge for the collaboration between China and United States in personnel, science and technology, information, economic, trade and other areas.
