ePIXfab is a European alliance of organizations that promotes silicon photonics science, technology and applications. ePIXfab is an open alliance. Any European organization with an interest in the mission of ePIXfab is welcome to become a member.

Since 2008, ePIXfab has set up an access to Multi Project Wafer (MPW) service for photonic IC prototyping, packaging and training. To know more about ePIXfab's history and rationale- click here.

Since 2015, ePIXfab has transferred the MPW services to EUROPRACTICE. However ePIXfab will continue to serve its role of being an alliance of European institutes working in the field of silicon photonics.

The activities of ePIXfab include:

  • Promote and disseminate the advancement of the field of silicon photonics at large and promote the activities of the European organizations, on the basis of publicly available information (or information approved for public release)
  • Represent the European silicon photonics community as a whole (without representing individual organizations)
  • Organize training activities with respect to silicon photonics technology and applications
  • Make roadmaps for silicon photonics
