Nanophotonics deals with the manipulating of lightwaves at the nanoscale using nanostructures, such as nanowires, photonic crystals, plasmonics and metamaterials. My talk will review recent breakthroughs in achieving on-chip control of lightwaves using nanophotonic circuits etched into hybrid planar geometries, particularly silicon based. I will emphasize new ultracompact signal processing functions realized using nonlinear optical effects, including Brillouin scattering, which harness the interaction between light and sound waves for applications in telecommunications, sensing and microwave technologies.
