Future developments in the field of datacom/telecom and sensing will require a high level of photonic integration. Silicon Photonics is widely seen as a key enabling technology as it leverages from Situs Slot Gacor CMOS technology allowing low cost manufacturing even for moderate volumes. While the field was predominantly a research field up to a few years ago, we now see the emergence of industrial silicon photonics products ranging from short-reach datacom transceivers to high capacity coherent transceivers and from optical coherence tomography systems to lab-on-a-chip devices. The science and technology of Silicon Photonics have made tremendous progress since its inception. But has it answered all the challenges associated with it? The main theme of this course is to answer this question by looking into recent progress and breakthroughs associated with Silicon Photonics and open challenges. Specifically, the course will address:
– Recent progress made on component level development in Silicon Photonics.
– Recent application specific progress made by Silicon Photonics, both in the field of high-speed transceivers as well as in the field of sensing.
– Recent evolutions in the prototyping and manufacturing platforms for Silicon Photonics as well as the complementing services and tools (design, MPW-service, packaging…).
