Fish Fry 500: The Best of Photonics (Now on Youtube!)

I have been fascinated by the manipulation of light since I was a kid. In another Fish Fry podcast playlist on Youtube, I investigate a variety of innovations in photonics. I chat with Dr. Eyal Cohen (Co-founder and CEO of Cognifiber) about Cognifiber’s glass-based chips, proprietary fibers, and embedded waveguides, and why the advancement of this kind of technology could revolutionize the world of edge computing. I also investigate a new ultra-compact integrated photonic device developed by University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering that could pave the way for a new class of integrated photonic circuits. This playlist also includes my discussion about the evolution of photonics and why photonics is finding its way into machine learning and artificial intelligence today with self-professed “crazy scientist” and photonics expert Gilles Lamant. I also examine a new optical fiber enabled early earthquake detection system and how fiber optics are ushering in a new age of ruggedized communication.

Reimagining Moore’s Law: One Glass Chip at a Time

Let’s talk about chips! In this Fish Fry podcast, Dr. Eyal Cohen (Co-founder and CEO of Cognifiber) joins me to unpack the photonic computing revolution. We investigate the details of Cognifiber’s glass-based chips, proprietary fibers, and embedded waveguides, and why the advancement of this kind of technology could revolutionize the world of edge computing. Also this week, I take a closer look at a new nanocellulose paper semiconductor developed by a team of researchers at Osaka University.

 

University of Chicago Research Team Develops a Whole New Class of Integrated Photonic Circuits

In this Fish Fry podcast, I investigate a new ultra-compact integrated photonic device that could pave the way for a new class of integrated photonic circuits. University of Chicago Asst. Professor Alex High joins me to discuss how his team at University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering developed a new way to guide light in one direction on a tiny scale. I also take a closer look at why this breakthrough could lead to even smaller photonic circuits and the details of a new element developed by this team at the University of Chicago that could shape the future of photonic circuits.

 

In this podcast, I investigate embedded optical modules with Gerry Persaud from Reflex Photonics – The Light on Board Company. Gerry and I discuss the benefits of their chip-sized embedded optical modules and why Reflex Photonics stands out in the optical module ecosystem. I also check out a research study at Stanford University that demonstrates how optical fiber cables embedded under our streets can sense seismic activity and how they could provide a new earthquake early detection system.

 

Warp Speed Ahead: Adventures in Photonics and The World’s First Quantum FM Radio

I’ve got three words for you: Quantum FM Radio! In this Fish Fry podcast, we take an in-depth look at some revolutionary quantum research coming out of University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering that will not only change the future of quantum mechanics as we know it, but also pave the way for unhackable communication channels, the teleportation of single electron states, and the realization of a quantum internet. Also this week, self-professed “crazy scientist” and photonics expert Gilles Lamant joins me to discuss the the evolution of photonics and why photonics is finding its way into machine learning and artificial intelligence today.

 

The Communication Super Highway: Fiber Optics and the New Age of Ruggedized Communication

Optical communication takes center stage in this episode of Amelia’s Weekly Fish Fry. First up, Mark Benton (TE Connectivity) and I chat about the different levels where optics can exist in the world of electronic packaging and the how the most recent advancements in ruggedized fiber optic technology have ushered in a whole new era of box to box and PC to PC communication. Also this week, Patrick Mechin (Techway) joins us to discuss the biggest trends in rugged optical communication today and why signal integrity in these environments is more important than ever before.

Battery-free IoT devices: Enabled by Infineon’s NFC Energy-Harvesting
Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Infineon
Energy harvesting has become more popular than ever before for a wide range of IoT devices. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Stathis Zafiriadis from Infineon about the details of Infineon’s NFC energy harvesting technology and how you can get started using this technology in your next IoT design. They discuss the connectivity and sensing capabilities of Infineon’s NAC1080 and NGC1081 NFC actuation controllers and the applications that would be a great fit for these innovative solutions.
