CARTOON project at NANOP 2016

The EU-funded CARTOON project will be represented at the NANOP 2016 conference that will take place in Paris, France, from 7 to 9 December 2016.

7 December 2016 - 9 December 2016
Paris, France

Professor Laurent Vivien, the coordinator of the FP7-funded CARTOON (CARbon nanoTube phOtONic devices on silicon) project will be giving a plenary speech on Day Three of the conference (9 December), entitled ‘Recent advances in silicon photonics.’

The Nanophotonics and Micro/Nano Optics International (NANOP) Conference is an annual event that hosts high-profile plenary speakers, world class researchers, oral and poster presentations, workshops, sponsor exhibits and afterworks. The overall theme of the conference will be ‘Optics at the frontiers.’

The primary goal of the CARTOON project is the development of a novel strategy for hybridising silicon based photonic devices, exploiting semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes (s-SWNT) as integrated light source, modulator and detector.
