Art and Photonics
This page is dedicated to images resulting from experimental measurements in WON, as we believe that some of them are truly mysterious and beautiful and can be used for creating artistic visualizations.
Multi-Project-Wafer run (MPW)
Experiment by Emadreza Soltanian (Ghent University)
Emadreza was working on a design for a Multi-Project-Wafer run (MPW). He had to simulate every basic component of the optical circuit he intended to design. One of the important passive components of an optical circuit is Multi-Mode-Interferometer (MMI). An MMI 1×2 is able to equally split incoming light into two branches. The interesting fact is that it also is able to combine the light coming from 2 branches into 1.
