Electronic-Photonic Cryogenic Egress Links
My research will focus on Electronic-Photonic Cryogenic Transmission/Egress Links, which enable high-speed, low-power data transmission between a room-temperature computer processor and computing units operating at cryogenic temperatures. Despite significant progress made in recent years on the individual components that make up the Optic link, such as the electro-optic modulator, on-chip laser source, and millivolt amplifier, there has been a lack of focus on evaluating the tradeoffs between them and the overall architecture. Thus, my goal is to propose and evaluate cryogenic egress link architecture that guarantees stability, efficiency, and speed.
