Advancing photonic systems through machine learning

Francesco Da Ros

10:15 to 11:00  ·  Auditorium

As our current society is highly dependent on our ability to share information, optical communication systems, i.e. the backbone of our communication infrastructure need to continuously evolve. The machine learning (ML) toolbox provides an effective and necessary set of tools to enable such technological advancements, as ML excels at: 1) learning complex input-output mappings allowing for simple system optimization, 2) extracting optimal decision rules for highly nonlinear classification problems 3) performing ultra-sensitive signal detection, 4) solving inverse system design problems. These strengths of ML make it applicable from the characterization of photonic devices to the optical subsystem design and full end-to-end system optimization....

Overcoming the Light Penetration Limits in Photodynamic Therapy of Cancer

Brian Wilson

11:10 to 11:55  ·  Auditorium

The high attenuation of light in tissue limits clinical applications. In particular, photodynamic therapy (PDT) using light-activated compounds (photosensitizers) has been unsuccessful in treating melanoma, because of its high pigmentation. Approaches to address this are optical clearing and fs laser-based 2-photon activation. For other large and deep-seated tumors, an emerging strategy is Radiodynamic Therapy, in which PDT is mediated by a low dose of deeply-penetrating high-energy X-rays as the energy source. The low activation efficiency of RDT can be circumvented by targeting the photosensitizer to the cell nucleus. These concepts are demonstrated using cell and animal tumor models.

14:30 to 15:00  ·  Hall A

COVID-19 is a World sanitary emergency. The tragedy related to this epidemic disease evolves actually more than 100 million confirmed cases and at least 2 million deaths. In this work we investigate whether FTIR operating under blood serum samples is viable option for COVID-19 diagnosis and fatality prediction. The performance of FTIR was compared to chemiluminescence immunoassay for anti-SARS-CoV-2 IgM and IgG antibodies in order to discuss vantages and advantages and viability for point-of-care applications



Spectral optimization for RGB skin oxygenation measurements

Antonio de Sousa Dias (USP); Murilo S. Sampaio (USP); Raquel Pantojo de Souza (USP); George C. Cardoso (USP)

15:00 to 15:20  ·  Hall A

In this article we investigate the spectral properties of light and RGB systems that optimize precision for spectral quantification of chromophores melanin, oxyhemoglobin, and deoxyhemoglobin in skin images. The methodology uses the Beer-Lambert law, and the stability of the resultant system of equations is studied regarding spectral properties of the RGB channels plus illuminant. We found that a well-posed problem depends on the choice of the spectral properties of the illuminant and the RGB. Poor spectral choices lead to losses of up to three significant digits beyond in system noise. We also show the desirable spectral ranges.

Invited Paper

Robinson Sabino da Silva (UFU)

16:30 to 17:00  ·  Hall A

The diagnostic of chronic diseases as diabetes, breast cancer, and chronic kidney diseases is invasive, and costly. In this context, emerging diseases also need improvement in the diagnosis. Consequently, the search for a sustainable, reagent-free, more cost-effective and non-invasive diagnostic platform is critical to public health. In this way, salivary biomarkers are an attractive alternative for early detection of systemic diseases. Salivary diagnosis offers several advantages than others biofluids. The attenuated total reflection Fourier-transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectrometry is a global, high-sensitive and highly reproducible analytical platform that detects molecular components. Here, we propose to exploit the advances of ATR-FTIR platforms to...

17:00 to 17:20  ·  Hall A

This paper presents the development of a hyperspectral imaging system for the classification of H&E-stained histological slides. The system was developed to be coupled to a conventional microscope, with software dedicated to control the instrumentation, to show a colorful life image from an RGB camera, and to acquire the hyperspectral imaging using a liquid crystal tunable filter (LCTF). Hyperspectral images of rats undergoing photodynamic therapy were classified with four different machine learning algorithms to find damaged tissues (crust). The classification results were presented, and show that this technique is promising to classify rats tissue regions.

Pedro Castro (IPEN); Telma Zorn (USP); Denise M. Zezell (IPEN)

17:20 to 17:40  ·  Hall A

The purpose of this study is to use infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) for monitoring biological changes in burned skin. Wistar rats dorsum samples were compared to healthy group samples at 7, 14, 21 days after burn. Proteins changes of burn wounds were monitored by area under the curve (AUC) of bands at 1630cm-1, 1543cm-1 and 1743cm-1. Kruskal-Wallis normality tests, unpaired t test with Welch's correction were used to evaluate the differences between AUC. These bands suggest association between collagen activity during wound healing stages. Our result indicates progressive recovery of 7,14 and 21 days tissues when compared with the healthy group.

Recent advances in machine learning-enabled inverse system design

Invited Paper

Uiara Celine de Moura (DTU Fotonik)

14:30 to 15:00  ·  Hall B

The traditional procedure to design optical devices consists of starting with an initial set of parameters (normally based on the designer's previous knowledge) and performing some parameter sweep around the initial condition to improve the device performance. This human-controlled design approach has two key drawbacks: it is time-consuming/work-intensive and tends to ignore solutions that could have better performance but are far from the initial guess. Based on the idea that the underlying features in a given data set can be automatically learned through specific algorithms, machine learning techniques have been successfully applied in optical communication systems and integrated photonics. They are employed to learn complex functions and perform the...



Front-End Specifications Impact on Kramers-Kronig Self-Coherent Systems

André Souza (Infinera); José Hélio da Cruz Jr (CPqD); Tiago Sutili (CPqD); Rafael C. Figueiredo (CPqD)

15:00 to 15:20  ·  Hall B

This work evaluates the requirements in terms of resolution and bandwidth of digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital converters and linewidth of lasers in a system with Kramers-Kronig receiver with receive-side laser and polarization multiplexing. The results indicate that spectral efficiency and lasers' linewidth requirements are close to those of coherent systems, but demanding twice the bandwidth of the analog-to-digital converter. Therefore, employing KK to replace coherent reception will require a careful analysis of energy consumption, performance and complexity trade-off, taking into account that KK demands a front-end with more complex specifications to achieve the desired performance.



Intensity Modulated Optical Systems for Next Generation of Data Center Interconnects

Tiago Sutili (CPqD); Sandro Marcelo Rossi (CPqD); Andre Souza (Infinera); José Hélio da Cruz Jr (CPqD); Rafael C. Figueiredo (CPqD)

15:20 to 15:40  ·  Hall B

This work investigates the performance of intensity modulated point-to-point optical links considering limitations from the electro-optical modulator bandwidth. All simulated scenarios considered a net transmission rate of 1 Tb/s, aiming to evaluate the feasibility of intensity modulated solutions for the next generation of short range optical links. Results indicate that, even considering a state-of-the-art electro-optical modulator, a 1-Tb/s transmission is viable only by using several wavelength-multiplexed optical subcarriers. The increase in the cost of this approach, when compared to coherent or self-coherent solutions, indicates the tendency to employ more spectrally efficient solutions on next-generation Data Center interconnects.

Peterson Rocha (Unicamp); Tiago Sutili (CPqD) (CPqD); Sandro Marcelo Rossi (CPqD); Cristiano M. Gallep (Unicamp); Rafael C. Figueiredo (CPqD); Evandro Conforti (Unicamp)

16:30 to 16:50  ·  Hall B

A scheme based on the four-wave mixing (FWM) phenomena in semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA) is optimized and characterized for low-penalty wavelength conversion of 16-ary quadrature amplitude modulated (16QAM) signals with symbol rates equal to 20 GBd, 28 GBd, and 32 GBd. Through an experimental optimization process, the SOA operational conditions were adjusted to avoid severe degradation of the converted signal due to nonlinear phenomena and noise insertion, while maximizing the conversion efficiency avoiding spurious FWM products. The obtained results indicate the feasibility of employing ultra-nonlinear SOAs to perform low-penalty wavelength conversion in coherent optical systems.

Lucas Marim (UNESP); Rômulo de Paula (UNESP); José de Oliveira (UNESP); Miriam Santos (UNESP); Rafael Abrantes Penchel (UNESP); Gretell Perez (UNESP); Marcelo Abbade (UNESP); Ivan A , Aldaya (UNESP)

16:50 to 17:10  ·  Hall B

As digital coherent technology gets mature and its cost reduces, it is becoming a competitive solution for future implementations of high-capacity long-reach passive optical networks (LR-PON). In the case of single-channel LR-PONs, the system performance is ultimately limited by the combined effect of the receiver additive noise and the nonlinear phase noise, which in turn is a consequence of the interplay between dispersion and Kerr-induced self-phase modulation. In this paper, we show that by employing a three-layer artificial neural network (ANN) to mitigate the effect of nonlinear phase noise, the bit error rate is reduced from 7·10-4 to 5·10-4.

An Overview on Laser Shock Peening Process: From Science to Industrial Applications

Alexandre Cunha (SENAI)

15:20 to 16:05  ·  Hall C

The surface of a material plays an important role in the behavior of engineered components. Surfaces are subjected to treatments in order to enhance the material performance by modifying and controlling its physical properties. In particular, modification of mechanical properties affects the wear and corrosion resistances, fatigue strength and, therefore, the component’s service lifetime. In this scenario, peening processes are employed on different industrial sectors. The term “peening” originates from the act of hitting a metallic surface with the ball-peen end of a hammer. In history, blacksmiths have used this procedure to forge weapons and tools. In the modern industry, the technique has evolved to shoot metal or ceramic particles on the metal surface....

16:10 to 16:55  ·  Hall C

We review the fundamentals of electron beam generation in the self-modulated laser wakefield acceleration for the case of laser pulses with peak powers on the TW and sub-TW scale. The results of particle-in-cell simulations for λ = 0.8 μm and a thin H2 gas target are shown. By scanning the peak gas density values and the peak power of the incident laser, we discuss the resulting acceleration processes, as well as the characteristics of the electron beams generated for different conditions. Our approach provides a method to optimize these beams with lasers that operate at kHz repetition rates.

Femtosecond pulses for nonlinear optics: Temporal, spectral and polarization dependence studies

Lino Misoguti (USP)

14:30 to 15:15  ·  Hall D

Due to their unique properties, femtosecond laser pulses have many applications in several areas of applied optics. In nonlinear optics, for instance, the broad bandwidth, high intensity and short pulse duration are explored by several experimental techniques to improve the understanding of nonlinear optical effects. Nowadays, thanks to the tunable laser pulses, it is possible to determine the spectral response of several materials’ nonlinear effects. Moreover, among the study of response time of ultrafast phenomena, we can use these pulses with appropriate experimental method and laser polarization state to discriminate the origin of nonlinear effects. As it is known, an effective nonlinear optical signal can arise from different origins such as nearly...

Hand-held photoacoustic imaging systems for biomedical applications

Theo Zeferino Pavan (USP)

16:10 to 16:55  ·  Hall D

Photoacoustic imaging (PAI) can provide physiological and anatomical information by combining optical absorption contrast with ultrasound spatial resolution and can be obtained up to a depth of a few centimeters. In PAI, short pulses of light are absorbed by the tissue, causing a local thermal expansion and subsequent acoustic wave emission. Hand-held PAI systems usually operate in reflection mode, where optical illumination and acoustic detection are arranged on the same side. In this talk, I will give an overview of different strategies for both optical illumination and acoustic detection reported for hand-held devices. A more detailed description will be provided for strategies involving linear-array transducers, which are commonly used in clinical...

Wender Gonçalves Daniel (Idea! Electronic Systems)

8:00 to 17:15  ·  Poster Session 1

This paper presents the results and procedures of simulations of our Multi-Quantum Well (MQW) laser in a model constructed in the commercial solvers of the Ansys/Lumerical® software. Usually, the design and fabrication of lasers MQW are challenging and expensive, thus simulations can hasten the development and give insights about design parameters. In this work, simulated power curves are compared to the measured curves, and a good agreement is obtained when the parameters are adjusted. Nonradiative recombinations and self-heating are the main effects that influence the performance of the simulated laser.

An analytical formulation and modeling of an optical fiber Bragg grating has been developed and is reported in this paper. Supported by the coupled-mode theory and considering that the mode fields of the unperturbed waveguide remain unchanged in the presence of weak perturbations, it is possible to obtain first-order differential equations which have solutions for some types of periodic perturbations. Finally, the model is applied to analyze the influence of structural parameters of fiber gratings, such as length, period and refractive index modulation on its reflectivity and bandwidth.
