by Dr. Shourjya Sanyal, CEO, Think Biosolution

Optical elements such as light-pipes and lenses allow physical coupling of the PICs with the external environment. Optimal design is a critical part of the design for manufacturing (DFM) process and can deliver impact in terms of increasing both brightness of the source and signal to noise ratio of the optical sensor. One of the biggest challenges in photonic integrated circuits (PICs) is to design a system that continues interacting with the external environment without a loss of quality over time.

New pilot line to be incubator of photonics multinationals in Eindhoven

Photonics is an emerging technology with a potential multitrillion market. Innovative small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are at the forefront of this development, but the R&D costs are prohibitive for them. That’s why 12 partners from northwestern Europe are creating an open access pilot line that will drastically reduce costs and time for the pilot production of new products. This new facility is projected to be the incubator of a thousand new companies and thousands of jobs. The 14 million euro project (OIP4NWE) is supported by the European Regional Development Fund and kicked off this week in Eindhoven.

PHOTONIC-MRAM: from fundamentals to nanoscale engineering – Presented by Theo Rasing, Radboud University

PHOTONIC-MRAM: from fundamentals to nanoscale engineering – Presented by Theo Rasing, Radboud University, at the Photonic Integration Conference 2018, which will take place on October 2, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

The 21st century digital economy and technology is presently facing fundamental scaling limits (heating and the superparamagnetic limit) as well as societal challenges: the move to mobile devices and the increasing demand of cloud storage leads to an enormous increase in energy consumption of our ICT infrastructure. These developments require new strategies and paradigm shifts, such as photon- and spin-based technologies. Since the demonstration of All-Optical Switching (AOS) by a single 40 femtosecond laser pulse1, the manipulation of spins by ultra-short laser pulses has become a fundamentally challenging topic with a potentially high impact for future spintronics3,4, data storage and quantum computation2. AOS in principle provides an alternative and energy efficient approach to magnetic recording, but in order to turn AOS into a viable technology, a number of challenges have to be overcome, such as scaling the technique to the nanoscale5, and delivering the required light in an efficient manner. In this talk, recent progress in this direction will be discussed. Continue reading “PHOTONIC-MRAM: from fundamentals to nanoscale engineering – Presented by Theo Rasing, Radboud University”

Sharing PIC design innovation: bridging open source and business with Nazca Design – Presented by Ronald Broeke, Bright Photonics

Sharing PIC design innovation: bridging open source and business with Nazca Design – Presented by Ronald Broeke, Bright Photonics, at the Photonic Integration Conference 2018, which will take place on October 2, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

There has been a strong and long request in the PIC design community for better PIC design layout tooling. We believe that the answer is Nazca Design. Nazca puts design experience, efficiency and quality in the first place in stead of marketing and market share. Nazca is an open source PIC design platform that stimulates innovation by making PIC design accessible for everyone and making PIC design business possible for everyone at the same time. How is this possible…? Continue reading “Sharing PIC design innovation: bridging open source and business with Nazca Design – Presented by Ronald Broeke, Bright Photonics”
