CMOS pilot line – Imec and Ghent University: Breakthrough marks step towards next-generation photonic integrated circuit technology

Imec and Ghent University have presented, for the first time, arrays of InP lasers monolithically integrated on 300mm silicon substrates in a CMOS pilot line.

This breakthrough, published in Nature Photonics, provides a path toward high-volume manufacturing of cost-effective photonic integrated circuits (PICs) with monolithically integrated laser sources. Such laser-powered PICs could change the way data is transferred between future logic and memory chips.
