Heterogeneous integration of III-V semiconductors on Silicon is one the key technology for next-generation on-chip optical interconnects. During this tutorial, I will show how we extended this hybrid approach to nanophotonics by using photonic crystals. 150-word Biography: Fabrice Raineri got his PhD in Physics from Paris Sud University in 2004 and subsequently spent 1 year at the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona. Currently, he is an associate professor (Maître de conférences) at Paris Diderot University and conducts his research at Laboratoire de Photonique et de Nanostructures, CNRS in Marcoussis France. He has extensive experience in the domain of nonlinear optics, photonic crystals and processing technology. He has been involved in several European projects such as HISTORIC (optical memories and heterogeneous integration) and COPERNICUS (ultrafast all optical gates) as well as several national projects
