Photonic Integration: A key enabler for multi-measure and sensing in complex Infrastructure

Marinus J. van der Hoek

Duo presentation by Marinus J. van der Hoek, Director / Photonics Innovator, VanderHoekPhotonics and Ruben van Ardenne, Manager Strategy and Innovation, Compass Infrastructure, The Netherlands

Photonics-based telecoms has accelerated the development and application of photonics-based sensing to a great extent. Nowadays, challenging conditions for sensing can be met using innovative principles, enabled by the nature of light.

From an industrial point of view, we are convinced photonics based sensing is the way forward and collaboration in the whole Photonics-based ecosystem is key.

Photonic integration in the future access market – Interview with Professor John Marsh, University of Glasgow

public market

“With a bit of luck and cooperation of the major stakeholders in the public market, we will have in about two years time faster internet connections”, according to professor John Marsh. But the far east will be the first to enjoy this advantage, as they have invested heavily in fibre optic systems over the past decade rather than relying on old copper networks like Europe and North America. On top of that it is of immense importance that the leading access network companies in the world agree on standards that include a robust roadmap for the next 15 years.

Application examples of TriPleX based PIC modules & Pix4life silicon nitride open access ecosystem – Presented by Arne Leinse, LioniX International, at the 3rd edition of the Photonic Integration Conference, on September 26, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Application examples of silicon nitride (TriPleX) based PIC modules and the Pix4life silicon nitride open access ecosystem

Application examples of the silicon nitride based PIC platform (TriPleX) will be shown and the accessibility of the ecosystem of silicon nitride based waveguide technology in Europe will be discussed in more detail. The H2020 Pix4life pilot line will be explained and the different technologies available for external users will be highlighted showing the audience the route forward for accessing these PIC platforms allowing them to easily develop new application modules.

About Arne Leinse
Arne Leinse Ph.D (Chief Commercial Officer) is active in integrated optics for more than 15 years. He received a PhD degree from the University of Twente in the integrated Optical Microsystems group in 2005. Hereafter he joined LioniX BV where he was involved in the invention and development of the TriPleX™ platform from the beginning. He has been involved from the original concept until the exploitation and (co)authored over 100 articles in the last years. He has been active as Vice-President of LioniX BV in the last years and since the establishment of LioniX-international in 2016 active in the role of Chief Commercial Officer.

There’s a ‘light on a chip’ revolution coming and Europe is in the lead

Demand for bandwidth is exploding

It’s tough being a data center these days. Demand for bandwidth is exploding. Every second, two households are connected to the Internet, and the amount of data doubles for each connection every 18 months. In 2016, over a billion smartphones will be sold worldwide, and each device needs access to a data center.

Silicon Valley, we have a problem. Continue reading “There’s a ‘light on a chip’ revolution coming and Europe is in the lead”
