Biography

Frederic Y. Gardes is a senior lecturer in the Optoelectronic Research Center (ORC) at the University of Southampton, UK. Frederic’s previous research covers silicon photonics and particularly high speed active optical devices in silicon and germanium. In 2005 he initiated work on silicon optical depletion modulators during his PhD and was the first to predict operation above 40GHz. He graduated with a PhD in 2010 and remained at the University of Surrey as a Research Fellow. In 2011 Frederic and his collaborators demonstrated optical modulation of up 50Gb/s and a 40Gb/s modulator with a quadrature Extinction Ratio (ER) of 10dB setting a new state of the art performance in both speed of modulation in silicon devices and extinction ratio. He is currently working with several national and international collaborators in large research programs where he leads the research effort in bulk silicon on-chip optical interconnects and mid infrared integrated photonics. Frederic is also involved in low power photonic crystal modulation and detection, Silicon/Germanium QCSE devices, Germanium and defect induced detectors and active device integration in group IV materials. He has authored more than 100 publications and 5 book chapters in the field of Silicon Photonics.
