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”
