Development of photonic ICs from application idea through simulation, design using advanced PDK tools, till fabrication and packaging is entirely enabled by JePPIX (Joint European Platform for Photonic Integration Components and Circuits) and enabled at low costs for SMEs, but also for large companies and research institutes. This is thanks to applied generic integration model that separates photonic IC application development from technology aspects, and thus accelerates development of novel photonic-based devices.
Prof. Dr. Ir. Frank Baaijens, Rector Magnificus, Eindhoven University of Technology, will speak about “Photonics at TU/e” during the Photonic Integration Symposium, which will take place on April 25, at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal, in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
An overview of research and development of an on-chip laser systems for use in gas sensing applications will be given. Novel geometry, widely tunable laser sources in a form of monolithic photonic integrated circuits realized using generic integration technologies will be presented. Feasibility of such lasers operating either in 1.5µm and 2µm wavelength bands for gas sensing will be demonstrated with experimental results obtained in absorption measurements of acetylene and carbon dioxide.
Meint Smit, GTIP Coordinator, TU/e, will provide an introduction to the STW perspectief program GTIP at the Photonic Integration Symposium, on April 25, 2016.
The steady increase in internet and data center traffic requires new technological solutions that can effectively transport large amount of information at low cost. Photonic integration technology shows great potential to tackle this task as it can combine many components on a single chip and therefore offer high-capacity transmitter and receivers. Like in electronics, parallelism, miniaturization and increasing integration density create new technological challenges that need to be addressed. We present the results from the ELPHI STW project which investigates these new challenges.
Progress in the development of InP membrane on silicon photonic integrated circuits will be discussed. This includes the realization of passive optical function, lasers and high-speed photodetectors in an InP membrane platform.

We all love watching the latest House of Cards on our cellphones or tablets, navigating the streets of Barcelona while listening to music through our apps – preferably without any delays or hiccups. With all this new, mobile technology in our hands, our thirst for fast connections and lots of data has grown exponentially. But data technology is reaching its limits. What we need is nothing short of a revolutionary innovation that is able to deal with more data at the speed of light.
