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.

"Ultra-wide super continuum generation in Si3N4/SiO2 waveguides" – Presented by Peter van der Slot, University of Twente

The TriPleX™ integrated optical waveguide platform based on Si3N4 embedded in SiO2 offers medium to high index contrast waveguides with extremely low losses. The extreme low loss combined with the large transparency window, from 400 nm (blue) to 2350 (mid-infrared), and its compatibility with microfluidics makes this platform of high interest for numerous applications ranging from telecom to lab-on-a-chip. On-chip frequency conversion is possible by exploiting the nonlinear susceptibility of the waveguide and would greatly advance the application of integrated photonics. Here we demonstrate ultra-wide supercontinuum generation with a bandwidth of almost 500 THz in dispersion-engineered Si3N4/SiO2 waveguides.

Technology Roadmap for Photonic Integration

As a result of significant investments in the development of foundry technology infrastructure (well over 50 M€ in European and national projects so far) Europe is making substantial progress in this new way of working. In this section we give an overview of the present status of the foundry capabilities of the JePPIX partners and a prediction for the status in 2016, 2018 and 2020.
