Meint Smit: Next Steps for InP-based Photonic Integration Technology

Indium Phosphide is a versatile semiconductor material that allows for integration of a broad range of components in a single chip. Basic building blocks include lasers, optical amplifiers, modulators, detectors and a variety of passive components, including wavelength demultiplexers, filters and couplers. InP-chips with record complexities of more than 1700 components integrated in a single chip have been reported. InP-based foundry processes offer low-cost access to mature integration processes with high performance and wafer-scale integration of InP-based photonic circuits with silicon electronics is emerging. Meint Smit will discuss what’s coming next and why this phase is important. Continue reading “Meint Smit: Next Steps for InP-based Photonic Integration Technology”

Building Big Business with the Next Generation Integrated Circuits!

Insights from Michael Lebby, CEO OneChip Photonics Corporation, the keynote speaker at the Photonics Integration Conference

Michael Lebby has always been very optimistic that integrated photonics will scaleup, creating business opportunities for many companies. Earlier this year, he was actively involved in assembling California’s bid, led by the University of Southern California, to host the new US integrated photonics manufacturing institute. So we asked him to share some insights into why this is an important time for the industry. Continue reading “Building Big Business with the Next Generation Integrated Circuits!”
