About ePIXfab

ePIXfab is a European alliance of organizations that promotes silicon photonics science, technology, and its applications.

The mission of ePIXfab is to build a future for silicon photonics in Europe through the development of a fabless model for the fabrication of silicon photonic circuits relying on European know-how.

ePIXfab is an open alliance in which any organization with an interest in the mission of ePIXfab is welcome. ePIXfab respects neutrality with respect to the ambitions of the member organizations and never expresses an opinion about the capabilities of its members.

Silicon photonics is evolving at an unprecedented pace. This technology provides solutions for a wide spectrum of applications such as high-speed transceivers, sensing, medical diagnostics, LiDAR, 5G, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and many others. ePIXfab is trying to help companies in adopting this low-cost, high-yield and mass-manufacturable PIC technology through its activities to enable more widespread adoption of silicon photonics technologies.
