Development of Optical Neural Networks Chip

Project Details


We plan to use the optical neural networks proposed by our laboratory to develop an integrated optical neural network chip using nano-optics components. We will use the directional couplers and phase modulators to provide the non-linear function for the neurons and to optimize the neural networks. We will fabricate the device on silicon-on-insulator chip. We will apply the applications of artificial intelligence on the chip. This optical neural network chip could provide an ultra-fast computation platform to the applications of big data.
