This webinar will present recent advances in the field of optical signal synthesis using photonic integrated circuits (PICs), addressing the different photonic techniques available involving from mode locked to dual wavelength laser sources as well as high speed photodetectors. Recent progress will be reported, on monolithic integration of the complete system on a single chip, as well as the development on planar antennas. These techniques are highly promising, enabling high integration densities, low power consumption and seamless interoperability between optical and electronic signals. The webinar will also discuss the implications in the development of related packaging solutions for the discussed photonic integrated circuits, with consideration towards practical applications in the area of wireless links pursued within the on-going European FP7 project iPHOS.

Bio: Guillermo Carpintero is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electronics, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), Spain since 2003. He obtained the Engineering Degree at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and the PhD Degree from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) in 1994 and 1999 respectively. He has been a regular Visiting Researcher at the Center for Advance Photonics and Electronics at the University of Cambridge from 2006 to 2009 and on 2011 spent a Sabbatical Leave with the Photonics Group of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of University College London.

His research interests include integrated photonic devices and their applications to optical signal synthesis of high frequency waves. He has been actively engaged in research on optical generation of millimeter and sub-terahertz waves. Dr. Carpintero has published more than 100 articles in scientific journals and international conferences, and has participated in several research projects funded by the European Commission within the FP4, FP5, FP6 and FP7 framework programs on optical integrated systems, including FALCON (Fast Lasers Collaboration Network), MONOPLA (MONOlithic short Optical Pulse LAser sources for ultrahigh speed communications), ePIXnet (European Network of Excellence on Photonic Integrated Components and Circuits), MITEPHO, etc. Currently he is involved in the MIRIFISENS project, developing QCL photonic integrated circuits and coordinates the FP7 iPHOS project (www.iphos-project.eu) in compact wireless systems for wireless communications in the E-band (60-90 GHz) and F-band (90-140 GHz). Dr. Carpintero was a recipient of the 2000 PennWell’s Heather W. Messenger Young Investigator Award, presented by SPIE (The International Society for Optical Engineering) and 2011 Best Best EC Funded Cooperative Research Project In Madrid Area from the Madri+d Foundation.


Dr. Carpintero is a member of the OSA and IEEE Photonics Society. He is member of the Editorial Board of the IET Optoelectronics Journal.
