Photonic multi-domain integration trends

stefan mohrdiek

Unlike mainly silicon-based electronics, photonic integration is characterized on one hand by a large diversity of material platforms used (Si, SiN, InP, GaAs, polymers) and on the other hand by wavelengths ranging from UV to the far infrared. In view of the difficulties to establish common, standardized platforms, heterogeneous integration continues to be a key element to drive new technologies and scientific advances for the next decade. The combination of heterogeneous functionalities with optical, thermal, electrical, fluidic, mechanical, and high frequency characteristics requires specialized materials and system integration (packaging and assembly) processes and equipment.
