  12. Hui Cao Seminar

    Disordered Photonics Most of the research in the field of photonics has focused on understanding and mitigating the effects of disorder which are often detrimental. For certain applications, however, intentionally introducing disorder can actually improve the device performance, e.g., in photovoltaics optical scattering improves the efficiency of light harvesting. We have utilized multiple scattering in a random photonic structure to build a compact on-chip spectrometer. The probe signal...

  14. Needs Seminar - Dr. Shaloo Rakheja, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

    Abstract - With its rich physical properties, the novel 2-D carbon-based material graphene is expected to play an important role in the advancement of semiconductor technologies. In a recent poll conducted by the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), graphene is named as the material most likely to have the greatest impact on geometric scaling. As a two-dimensional material, graphene has a limited phase space for scattering of electrons; hence, the electrons in...

    Quantum Assisted Magnetometry with NV centers in Diamond Nitrogen vacancy (NV) color centers are point defects that occur naturally in diamond. They can also be created artificially via standard semiconductor fabrication techniques. Associated with this defect are spin states that can be initialized & read-out optically, and driven coherently with resonant microwaves. The coherence time of NV spins tends to be quite long even at room temperature. For these reasons, NVs are ideally...
