Heterogeneous integration key to future integrated-photonics growth

No single integrated-photonics technology can do it all: they need to be combined for maximum functionality. The set of techniques to do that – hybrid or heterogeneous integration – is a key growth driver for the Dutch integrated-photonics industry. This article explains what heterogeneous integration is and why it matters. In electronics, the vast majority

InP on SiN photonic integrated circuits realized through wafer-scale micro-transfer printing

New H2020 project INSPIRE will revolutionize photonic integrated circuit technology by combining highest optoelectronic efficiencies in InP photonics and lowest optical loss in SiN photonics, in a single platform through wafer-scale micro-transfer printing technology.Major photonic integration platforms, i.e., silicon, silicon nitride (SiN) or indium phosphide (InP) based, are now mature and make their impact in

World premier: AIM Academy (MIT) and PhotonDelta present the Integrated Photonics Systems Roadmap

Cambridge (USA) Eindhoven (NL), December 14 – The 2020 Integrated Photonics System Roadmap – International (IPSR-I), a global reference document that reveals the full potential of integrated photonics, has been released jointly by MIT’s Initiative for Knowledge and Innovation in Manuafcturing (IKIM) in Cambridge, which runs the AIM Photonics Academy project and PhotonDelta, based in

Overview IPSR-I 2020 released

The Integrated Photonics Systems Roadmap – International 2020 overview, a joint initiative of AIM academy and PhotonDelta, has been released on 10-10-2019. The objective of the IPSR-I is to establish and sustain a trust based global network of Industrial and R&D partners, who are working together on defining and creating future Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC)
