The Specialist Course on Silicon Photonics Design goes from ideation to characterization of a working silicon photonics chip. The course focuses on the process of translating a photonic circuit idea into a working chip, going from schematic design and circuit simulation to layout, routing, and interactive design rule checking.

As part of the course, the participants get the opportunity to actually tape out a design that will be fabricated with an e-beam prototyping service and characterized. Based on these results, the design can be improved and submitted to a wafer-scale multi-project-wafer run of which the participants will receive the final chips.
