Dynamic environment of technology, Covid situation pushed few high-tech related topics to their limits, health, digitalization and security. In this talk, will be summarize how&why integrated photonic plays an important role in these segments and will share our recent progress with respect to 200/300mm CMOS technologies.
Dr. Amin Abbasi received his BS and MSc in Applied Physics (Lasers) from the University of Tabriz, Iran, in 2009. In 2016, he finished his PhD degrees in ultra-high-speed directly modulated DFB lasers at Ghent University (UGent). He continued his research at imec/UGent on 100 Gb/s single-channel EAM modulators until 2017. Afterwards, he joined AntwerpSpace/OHB as Photonic Team Leader on microwave photonics for satellite communication. There, he contributed to various development projects for the space segment, such as OBF for SAR radar and Q-band frequency converter and receiver development for free-space communication. He joined imec in September 2020 as business development manager, covering imec’s SiN/Si 200- and 300-mm photonic platforms for sensing applications. He currently focuses on photonics integrated circuits (in Si/SiN) for optical switching and optical beamforming for lidar applications. He has (co-)authored more than 50 peer-reviewed publications.
