Ultrafast Photonics Time-Frequency Signal Processing Using Integrated Photonics


The lecture begins by discussing examples of photonic time-frequency processing of ultrafast and broadband signals, demonstrated initially using bulk or discrete optical components.  Selected applications of optical microresonators and other integrated photonics devices for analog signal processing of ultrafast and broadband light are then reviewed. Topics include radio-frequency and optical arbitrary waveform generation, optical frequency combs, and time-frequency entangled photons.
