Future Built on Knowledge

Mher Ghulinyan

Ricercatore Unità FMPS – Centro Materiali e Microsistemi FBK

M.S. in 1995 and Doctoral degree in physics in 1999 from the Yerevan State University. As a postdoc (2002 to 2006) at the University of Trento, his early-carrier research in Silicon Photonics – Optical superlattices (OSL) – paved the way to the first-time demonstrations of fundamental phenomena: photonic Bloch oscillations [PRL-2003, cover story] and resonant Zener tunneling [PRL-2005-a], Anderson localization of light and observation of optical necklaces [PRL-2005-b], vapor control of photonic bands [PRB-2006] and a optical switching using capillary condensation [Nat.Photon.-2007].
Since 2006 he is a researcher at CMM-FBK and currently holds a leading role in the development of FBK-CMM’s capacities to perform optical engineering and fabrication of different micro/nano-optical components and circuitry. His interests are in the field of resonator optics, with a particular focus on monolithically integrated optically active and passive planar microresonators. Current research includes developments towards integrated Silicon Quantum Photonics and heterogeneously integrated active Silicon Photonics. In the last 5 years he has held the course of Photonics at the University of Trento as contract professor. He is a member of the Optical Society of America (OSA), author of one book, several book-chapters, editor of one book, more than 130 research papers and inventor of 2 patents.
