MURI Team Wins Synopsys Optical Design Competition Award

UT team (Chenghao Feng, Jiaqi Gu, and Hanqing Zhu) supported by the MURI project (PIs: Profs. Ray T. Chen and David Z. Pan) has been recognized with a 2022 Robert S. Hilbert Memorial Optical Design Competition award. The team received an award for their project titled, “A compact 4×4 butterfly-style silicon photonic-electronic neural chip for hardware-efficient deep learning.” They used Synopsys Photonic Solutions software to design a chip that supports an optical neural network for next-generation neurocomputing.

The annual competition celebrates exceptional research projects designed by college students in North America using Synopsys Optical Solutions software. Link (UT News).
