The background of the University of Oxford’s Advanced Nanoscale Engineering Lab is in the application of phase-change materials in a variety of optoelectronic devices, as well as advanced nanofabrication techniques. Its work on photonic devices for computing will contribute to work packages 4 on the development of matrix multiplication device concepts as well as contributing to WPs 6 and 8. The University of Oxford will perform both modeling and experimental research to investigate new photonic multiplication concepts using in-memory photonic computing and develop novel photonic computing paradigms.

Harish Bhaskaran has 20 years of experience in nanoscale engineering and his expertise in computing devices and nanoscale design places him in an excellent position to lead WP 4.
