Recent Progress In Photonic crystals Slides

Abstract:  In this workshop, we will review our recent progress in photonic crystals, especially for Energy and IT Applications. The examples include (1) ultrahigh-Q nanocavities and their applications, (2) thermal-emission control for highly efficient thermo-photovoltaic systems and environmental sensing, and (3) broad-area high-power coherent photonic-crystal lasers. Such a broad-range of progress in photonic crystals indicates that photonic crystal research has now entered advanced phases towards realization of ultimate control of photons.

 

Biography:  Professor Takashi Asano received B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan, in 1992, 1994, and 1997, respectively, all in electronics. From 1996 to 1998, he was a Research Fellow with the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science at Kyoto University. From 1999 to 2000, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Kyoto University Venture Business Laboratory, Kyoto. He joined Kyoto University, in 2000, and is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electronic Science and Engineering. His research has been concerned with intersubband transitions in quantum wells, ultrafast phenomena in semiconductors, and 2-D photonic crystals. His current research interest includes photon manipulation using high-Q photonic nanocavities, SiC photonics, and thermal radiation control using semiconductor quantum structures and 2-D photonic crystals. He received an Encouragement Prize of the Japan Society of Applied Physics (1999).


Professor Susumu Noda received B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan, in 1982, 1984, and 1991, respectively, all in electronics. In 2006, he has received an honorary degree from Gent University, Gent, Belgium. From 1984 to 1988, he was with the Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, and he joined Kyoto University in 1988. Currently he is a full Professor with the Department of Electronic Science and Engineering and a director of Photonics and Electronics Science and Engineering Center (PESEC), Kyoto University. His research interest covers physics and applications of photonic crystals and quantum nanostructures. He received several awards including the IBM Science Award (2000), the Japan Society of Applied Physics Achievement Award on Quantum Electronics (2005), and OSA Joseph Fraunhofer Award/Robert M. Burley Prize (2006), IEEE Fellow (2008), IEEE Nanotechnology Pioneering Award (2009), Reo Esaki Awards (2009), Medal with Purple Ribbon (2014) and the 15th Japan Society of Applied Physics Outstanding Achievement Award (2015).
