Plenary Lecture 2: Back-end Si photonics for high-performance photonic systems


Koji Yamada

National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan

Koji Yamada received his B.E., M.E. and Ph.D. degrees in nuclear engineering from Kyushu University, Japan, in 1986, 1988 and 2003, respectively. Currently, he is a group leader of Silicon Photonics Group in National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan. From 1988 to 2015, in NTT laboratories, he was engaged in studies on accelerator physics/engineering for synchrotron light sources and studies on silicon-based photonic platform. Since joining AIST in 2015, he continues studying silicon-based photonic platform. He is a member of IEEE, the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE), the Japan Society of Applied Physics, the Atomic Energy Society of Japan and the Particle Accelerator Society of Japan.
