Join us for the next Entrepreneurs Roundtable with guest speaker Anis Rahman, Ph.D. A light lunch is provided with registration. Dr. Anis Rahman is the founder, President and Chief Technology Officer of Applied Research & Photonics (ARP) Inc., Hummelstown, PA 17036. ARP, Inc. was founded with a goal to produce nanophotonic integrated circuits (nPICs) from a new set of novel nanomaterials called dendrimer. ARP’s proprietary design and technology makes it possible to produce integrated photonic devices with smaller form factor, improved performance, and higher functional density on a chip. nPIC is a platform technology having applications in communication, computing and sensing. Photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are analogous to electronic ICs. In regular ICs, however, information processing is done by electronic signal while in PICs information is processed by light signal. The ability of processing information via light has a tremendous benefit in accomplishing high-bandwidth, high-speed communication and computing in more reliable and cost-effective means. ARP is collaborating with the Penn State’s Nanofabrication Facility (University Park, PA 16802) and Dendritic Nanotechnology Inc. (Mt. Pleasant, MI 48858), with a goal to bring cost-effective, next-generation, integrated photonics solutions for fiberoptic communication and computing for both short-haul and space-based applications, and sensing applications in life sciences area.
The Entrepreneur’s Roundtable is a series of informal, lunch time programs designed for students to hear from local entrepreneurs on the realities of starting a business.
- When: 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
