In this presentation we will report on our recent work on new materials that can be monolithically integrated on high-index contrast silicon or silicon nitride photonic ICs to enhance their functionality. This includes graphene and other 2D-materials for realizing compact electro-absorption modulators and non-linear devices, ferroelectric materials for realizing phase modulators and adiabatic couplers for realizing bistable switches.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
