Speech Title:Similarities between organometallic halide Perovskite & Conventional organic semiconductors

Abstract:Organometallic halide Perovskite has become the most studied photovoltaic materials in the past few years. It in fact shares many common properties with conventional organic semiconductors. In particular, interesting properties of Perovskite such as ferroelectric properties, unusually high ambipolar conductivities etc have been observed in charge transfer complexes formed between certain donor and acceptor molecules. One reason for the high performance of organometallic halide Perovskite is its ability to form free carriers instead of bound excitons upon photon excitation. This property is also recently observed in some small molecules. These new observations enable new designs of device architecture for enhanced solar cell performance.

Speech Title:Dilute nitride bismide semiconductor quantum wells and quantum dots for the near-infrared optoelectronic device application

Abstract: In this talk, we will review our work on the electronic structure and optical properties of GaAsNBi semiconductor quantum wells and quantum dots. The III-V-N-Bi semiconductor calculations are based on the 16-band k.p method. Band anti-crossing (BAC) and valence band BAC are applied to include the N and Bi contributions. Strain effect is taken into consideration in the model. The k cut-off method is used to avoid the spurious solution. The band structure and optical gain spectra are obtained and discussed. Our study shows that the dilute nitride bismide semiconductor is very promising for the near-infrared optoelectronic device application, such as, the 1.55 um laser diode.

Speech Title:Nonlinear Effects in Photonic Devices and Systems


As the transmission speed and bandwidth of the fiber optic communication system increases, the impact of fiber nonlinearity is enhanced setting up an upper limit on the channel capacity. In this talk, a technique known as optical back propagation (OBP) which provides significant compensation on fiber nonlinear effects is discussed. An OBP module consisting of an optical phase conjugator (OPC), amplifiers and dispersion-decreasing fibers (DDFs) fully compensates for the dispersion and nonlinear impairments of a transmission fiber. The dispersion profile of the DDF is calculated analytically by demanding that the OBP module compensates fully the nonlinear impairments due to the transmission fiber. The OBP module can be placed after each transmission fiber (inline OBP case) or at each network node (node OBP case). Although the digital back propagation can compensate for inter-channel nonlinear impairments in point-to-point systems, it would be impossible to mitigate these effects in digital domain in fiber optic networks since the the channel path information is not available to the receiver. In contrast, OBP can compensate for inter-channel nonlinear effects in optical networks. Our simulation result shows that the OBP brings a significant performance advantage as compared to digital back propagation techniques in optical networks. 

In the second part of the talk, the basic physics of micro-cavity is reviewed and the applications such as nano-particle detection are discussed. Due to the small size of the micro-cavity, nonlinear effects become significant even at micro-watt power levels. The impact of Kerr nonlinearity on the whispering gallery modes of the micro-cavity is investigated. Our results show that a resonant mode of the micro-cavity undergoes a frequency shift proportional to its energy, which has potential applications for nanoparticle detection.
