14 papers at CLEO, including one postdeadline talk and one highlighted talk!

May 23, 2022

Our group members presented 14 works at this year's CLEO conference across oral and poster presentations. This includes one postdeadline paper and a highlighted talk! It was great going to in-person conferences again!

Congratulations to Amirhassan, CJ, Daniel, David, Dylan, Eric, Linbo, Mengjie, Michael, Michelle, Rebecca, Sophie + Eliza, and Yaowen!

Electrically pumped laser transmitter integrated on thin-film lithium niobate

Loncar group demonstrated the first fully integrated high-power laser on a lithium niobate chip!

April 11, 2022

For all the recent advances in integrated lithium niobate photonic circuits — from frequency combs to frequency converters and modulators — one big component has remained frustratingly difficult to integrate: lasers.  

Long haul telecommunication networks, data center optical interconnects, and microwave photonic systems all rely on lasers to generate an optical carrier used in data transmission. In most cases, lasers are stand-alone devices, external to the modulators, making the whole system more expensive and less stable and scalable. 

Now,...
