The objective of this Ph.D. is to surpass the conventional integration of 2D materials with Si or SiN waveguides, which has been the primary focus in existing literature. The goal is to create more efficient nonlinear devices. To achieve this, resonant structures will be designed and fabricated to enhance the interaction between light and the 2D material deposited on top.
Additionally, this research will demonstrate novel functionalities such as frequency comb generation and broadband supercontinuum using hybrid devices coated with 2D materials. The unique properties of 2D materials, such as graphene, graphene oxide, black phosphorus, Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMD), etc., will be adjusted to strike the optimal balance in terms of their nonlinear properties, thus achieving optimized nonlinear devices.
