Beyond high-performance computing (HPC) & data centers, Photonics technology is now ready to addresses also application in Consumer Electronics, Industrial, Automotive & Transportation, Smart city, Cybersecurity, Food & Beverage, and Medical Care. Optical sensors are well known for accuracy, sensitivity, selectivity, versatility, and speed of acquisition. Thanks to the development of integrated photonics, next generation of optical sensors will also improve compactness, lightweight, and low consumption.
During this webinar, after a glimpse of future prospects, Nanoelec speakers will share their latest results & performance obtained in integrated photonics technology: 300mm R&D and industrial fab, ultra-low loss waveguide, multi wavelength layer engineering with several waveguide materials (Si, Si3N4, SiGe, …), III-V material engineering and laser source integration, advanced electronic design automation tools and wafer-level testing.
Facilitator: Christophe Kopp, Director fo the Photonics on Si program at Nanoelec
