|Title: Fast computational methods for complex
and Photonic packages and interconnects
Professor Safieddin Safavi-Naeini
Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
University of Waterloo
Fast computational techniques are essential for exploring new circuit configurations and optimizing novel interconnect structures required in future generation information systems and networks. Innovative packaging/interconnect techniques and signal integrity issues have become the focus of numerous R&D efforts in the areas of high-speed digital circuits, RF/microwave/millimeter wave integrated circuits and antennas, and RF-photonics integrated technologies world-wide.
In this talk, after a brief introduction of RF/Microwave and Photonics Group at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Waterloo, our research on fast computational methods for Electromagnetics and photonics is described in more detail. High pin-count complex package modeling, application of EP/GA modeling schemes, "parametric" green function approach, GO/PO and GBT/PO approach as well as hybrid schemes for complex photonic interconnects will be presented.
Safieddin Safavi-Naeini received B.Sc.. in E.E., from University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran, 1974 and M.Sc.. and Ph.D. in E.E., both from University of Illinois (Champaign-Urbana), USA, in 1975 and 1979 respectively. He was Assist. and then Assoc. Prof., at University of Tehran, EE Dept., from 1980 to 1995 and has been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Waterloo, since 1996, where he is now a professor.
Dr. Safavi's research interests and activities include numerical electromagnetics applied to analysis and design optimization of RF/microwave/millimeter wave systems and circuits, antenna and propagation, wireless communication systems, very high speed digital circuits and photonics. He has published more than 110 papers in technical journals and conferences. He has been scientific and technical consultant to a number of national and international telecom industrial and research organizations over last 20 years.
