This project explores the 3D hybrid integration of photonics and CMOS. From the application side, it also explores utilization of electronic-photonic circuits in a variety of analog and mixed-signal applications - from low-phase noise oscillators, to photonic A/D converters, analog modulation links, waveform generators to imagers.
