PhoeniX Software, INPHOTEC partner to facilitate design and fabrication process of photonic integrated circuits

Silicon photonics

Silicon photonics holds the potential to become a cost-effective, scalable technology for the production of photonic integrated circuits (PIC’s) to address applications including high-performance optical networking, data center interconnects, signal processing, and biological and chemical sensing.

Researchers have taken key steps towards building a European-based silicon photonics supply chain

photonics supply chain

Researchers have taken key steps towards building a European-based silicon photonics supply chain and speeding up industrialisation of the technology.

Partners involved in the EU-funded PLAT4M project have developed new technologies to achieve the mass production of silicon photonics, which can be used to build complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) circuits.

Technology Roadmap for Photonic Integration

As a result of significant investments in the development of foundry technology infrastructure (well over 50 M€ in European and national projects so far) Europe is making substantial progress in this new way of working. In this section we give an overview of the present status of the foundry capabilities of the JePPIX partners and a prediction for the status in 2016, 2018 and 2020.
