“Integrated metamaterial surface-emitting antenna for beam steering applications”
Integrated optical antennas are relevant devices for the development of next-generation LIDAR systems. Here we experimentally demonstrate a new topology to implement long antennas in silicon-on-insulator platform. The designed 2-millimeter-long antenna presents a measured far-field beam divergence of 0.1° and a wavelength sensitivity of 0.13°/nm.

“Secure authentication of 56 physically unclonable silicon photonic integrated circuits”
We demonstrate the physical unclonability and secure authentication of fifty-six nanophotonic devices with identical design, fabricated from silicon moiré photonic quasicrystal interferometers. Such structures show promise for cryptographic applications such as authentication and identification.

“High-Q-factor tellurium oxide clad silicon microring resonators”
We present the design and experimental measurement of high-Q-factor on-chip tellurium-oxide-coated silicon microring resonators with internal Q factors of up to 1.5 × 106, corresponding to 0.4 dB/cm waveguide loss, at wavelengths around 1550 nm.
