ABU DHABI: Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, announced on Thursday that a scientific paper co-authored by its faculty has become one of the top 10 most downloaded articles in ‘Optics Express,’ a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the Optical Society of America.

The faculty includes Dr Anatoly Khilo, Dr Mike Perrott and Dr Marcus Dahlem, all professors in the Microsystems Engineering Master’s programme  at Masdar Institute. The paper titled ‘Photonic ADC: overcoming the bottleneck of electronic jitter’ presents research where photonics and electronics are integrated on the same platform, in order to achieve high-performance and low-power novel devices and functionalities that would not be possible with traditional electronic circuits. In this particular case, photonics can be used to greatly expand the capabilities of conventional electronic analogue-to-digital converters.

The article on the ‘Optics Express’ journal entered the top 10 most downloaded list in February 2012 itself, the same month it was published, reiterating the high impact of the research that is being conducted at Masdar Institute.

The work presented at the paper was done by faculty and personnel from higher education institutions and major corporations including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Germany’s Centre for Free-Electron Laser Science, DESY & University of Hamburg, University of Colorado in Boulder, and BBN Technologies at Cambridge in Massachusetts as well as Intel Corp and Samsung Corp.

This is the second time the prestigious journal has published a paper from Masdar Institute faculty. Earlier in June 2011, Dr Clara Dimas, another Microsystems Engineering Professor at Masdar Institute, and her former student Faleh Al Tal, published a paper titled ‘Simulation of an erbium-doped chalcogenide micro-disk mid-infrared laser source’.

The paper was co-authored by faculty from the Microphotonics Centre at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Delaware.

It covered Dr Clara Dimas’s work on the low-energy fabrication and integration of light sources onto silicon and sensor electronics, as photonic integrated circuits for low-power sensing, telecommunications and computing requires light sources.
