According to Iñigo Artundo, Photonic integration has become a mature technology that is starting to be commercialized in several industrial and commercial applications. However, there are still many practical issues to consider before, during and after miniaturizing an optical system into a photonic chip, and these often involve important business considerations too.
VLC Photonics has been the complete photonic integration partner for many companies in several markets, and in this talk it will give a top-down overview of all the required steps to successfully develop an optical chip, including examples of real customer projects.
