Guest lecture by Professor Zhipei Sun
Title of presentation: '2D Materials for Grand Photonic Challenges' Location: U177 Abstract: Professor Zhipei Sun will present a few examples of his efforts using 2D materials to address the current grand challenges in photonics, such as high-performance lasers and quantum sources, ultrafast modulators, and miniaturized spectrometers. He will also introduce recent results of employing hybrid structures, such as mixed-dimensional heterostructures, moiré structures, plasmonic structures, and silicon/fibre waveguides integrated structures. Bio: Zhipei Sun is Professor of Photonics and the head of the Photonics Research Group at the Department of Electronics and Nanoengineering of Aalto University, Finland. He earned his PhD from the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in 2005. Currently, he is actively involved with the European research council advanced grant, European quantum flagship, Academy of Finland Photonics Flagship, and Academy of Finland Centre of Excellence on quantum technology. His research interests include nonlinear optics, nanophotonics, and ultrafast photonics. He presently focuses on carbon nanotubes, graphene, and other 2D materials for photonics and optoelectronics.
