Laser-written 3D integrated photonics

Femtosecond laser direct-writing is an enabling technology for the fabrication of 3D integrated photonic circuits. Recentprogress on 3D integrated photonics for astronomy, opticalcommunication and beam shaping of high power diode lasers isreviewed

Simon Gross received his M.Sc. degree in Microelectronics from the Vienna University of Technology, Austria and PhD degree in Physics from Macquarie University, Australia in 2009 and 2013, respectively. He is a Macquarie University Research Fellow at the MQ Photonics Research Centre and Centre for Ultrahigh Bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) at Macquarie University. His research interest are the application of ultrafast lasers to optical materials processing in particular laser direct-writing of photonic waveguide devices for telecommunication, sensing and astronomical applications. Hi is a member of the Australian Optical Society and The Optical Society and SPIE.
