Poster Prize for Lin Jin at Cleo 2023
Lin Jin won a poster award for her poster about Niobium Nitride Superconducting Nanowire Single Photon Detector on 4H-Silicon Carbide at the conference CLEO (2023) for Laser Science to Photonic Applications held in San José, California.
This highlights our efforts of 5 talks and 6 posters presented at this years version of the conference. Congratulations to Lin for her excellent work in the field of Silicon Carbide Photonics!
International Workshop on Physical Computing
Prof. Dr. Antonio Calà Lesina (Leibniz University Hannover) and Prof. Dr. Wolfram Pernice (Heidelberg University) invited a fantastic goup of speakers to a picturesque medieval town in Sicily. The workshop theme is driven by the idea that physical concepts, functional materials and devices could be used to run computations directly, in contrast to using logic gates. There are several emerging themes and implementations of this concept, which we would like to cover in depth.
Please register before October 2nd, 2022.
New joint research project called PHOENICS: 'Photonic Enabled Petascale In-Memory Computing With Femtojoule Energy Consumption' funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 takes off with the aim to develop brain inspired in-memory computer architectures!
Congratulations to Johannes for winning the Infineon-Doctorate Award awarded anually for the best PhD Thesis at the department of physics of the WWU for his work on "Photonic non-von Neumann Processors"!
Our latest research on "All-optical spiking neurosynaptic networks with self-learning capabilities" appears in the current issue of Nature including a "news and views" by Geoffrey W. Burr! Read the paper News and Views Press Release
A new research project focussed on Organic Quantum Integrated devices (ORQUID) together with partners in the Netherlands, Spain, Great Britain and France lead by Prof. Wolfram Pernice starts in April. The exciting new possibilites of using single oranic molecules for interfacing between photons, electrons and phonons will be explored to build quantum photonic networks!
