En esta charla, se presentan algunos resultados de propagación de sonido en medios magnetorreológicos que inspiraron la construcción de reactores 
de separación magnética de minerales de hierro. Se hará un recuento de la problemática industrial de la minería de hierro y del campo de oportunidad que representa la eficiencia de los procesos  en el contexto de la transición energética. Además, relataremos como se lograron superar las barreras para el escalamiento y la  implementación de una tecnología disruptiva para el procesamiento de más de la mitad de la producción mexicana de hierro.

Integrated Photonics: a Key Enabling Technology
Fecha:

Aula de Postgrado

Prof. Andrea Melloni, Politecnico di Milano, Italy

The 21st century will depend as much on photonics as the 20th century depended on electronics. The market for photonic technology is currently about one fifth of the global market for electronics but it is growing faster. And the prospect to shrink many optical functions on a single chip mimicking the path followed by integrated electronic is certainly appealing, although challenging. In photonics, integration technology is still in its infancy, very expensive and looking for large markets but it is developing rapidly.

The lecture aims to introduce, to a broad audience, the field of integrated photonics at large presenting the state of the art, potentialities and limits and a survey of applications in a multitude of fields, from telecommunication to biophotonics, from microwave photonics to quantum phenomena. The current enthusiasm for silicon photonics, the perception that photonic chips be suitable for consumer markets, the awareness that integrated photonics is a virgin territory for science and a gold mine for companies are boosting both science and industries towards new emerging initiatives around the globe. A short overview on roadmaps and visions in Europe and US will be described.

This is a Zhorez Alferov named lecture, organized by Dr. Pavel Cheben, National Research Council of Canada, in agreement with Facultad de Física and Sociedad Cubana de Física.
