The photonics research group of Ghent University, headed by Prof. R. Baets, is actively working on the design and fabrication of SOI and SiN-based photonic devices using standard lithographic techniques compatible with CMOS-processing. 100- members of the group are working on the various application of silicon photonics ranging from information and communication technology to sensing and life sciences.
