Integrated Photonic Technologies Workshop PDF

Wednesday, April 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 2015, 7:00–9:30 PM
Located at MIT Lincoln Laboratory – 244 Wood Street, Lexington, MA, 02420, USA

Integrated photonic technology platforms enable system-on-chip solutions for communications, sensing, bio-medical measurements, and other applications. Several platforms are available including silicon photonics (SiPh), indium phosphide (InP), planar lightwave circuit (PLC), and hybrid approaches. These technologies have received significant attention in recent years, especially SiPh, owing to the potential for energy-efficient and affordable short-reach optical interconnects. This workshop will bring together leading experts to discuss the status and performance of these platforms, the array of photonic building blocks available within each platform, the accessibility of photonics foundries and multi-project wafer runs, and the remaining hurdles for achieving true large-scale integration. In this workshop the organizers also aim to foster communication and collaboration through networking among the many different Integrated Photonic Technologies of the individual engineers and researchers attending. To learn more about the rapid advances of Integrated Photonics directly from the foremost researchers in the different specialties involved, register for and attend this local Boston Integrated Photonic Technologies Workshop.
