We.8.Le Saleve.1
HETEROEPITAXY OF INDIUM PHOSPHIDE ON SILICON FOR MONOLITHIC INTEGRATION
Sebastian Lourdudoss, Laboratory of Semiconductor Materials, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
An attractive platform for realizing monolithic integration of III-Vs on silicon for silicon photonics through Epitaxial Lateral Overgrowth (ELOG) is proposed, demonstrated and discussed.
 
We.8.Le Saleve.2
COLLOIDAL NANOCRYSTALS AND THEIR POTENTIAL IN OPTICAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS
Vanessa Wood, ETH Z├╝rich, Switzerland 
Colloidally synthesized nanocrystals offer narrow bandwidth emission that can be selected across the visible and near-infrared wavelength regimes. Recent advances in the integration of colloidal nanoscrystals in optoelectronic devices highlight their potential for telcom applications. We review the benefits and challenges to realization of these technologies.
