"Exploring the Limits of Photonic Integration" – Presented by Weiming Yao, Eindhoven University of Technology

The steady increase in internet and data center traffic requires new technological solutions that can effectively transport large amount of information at low cost. Photonic integration technology shows great potential to tackle this task as it can combine many components on a single chip and therefore offer high-capacity transmitter and receivers. Like in electronics, parallelism, miniaturization and increasing integration density create new technological challenges that need to be addressed. We present the results from the ELPHI STW project which investigates these new challenges.
