SiEPICfab-ePIXfab Joint Workshop on Laser Integration & Laser Integration MPW

Power-up your photonic integrated circuits

November 15-18, 2021
5 PM (CET) / 8 AM (PST) to 7 PM (CET) / 10 AM (PST)

Registration

Silicon photonic integrated circuits have allowed for incredible advances in a number of fields, including LiDAR, signal processing, sensors, and data transmission, in part due to the manufacturability of CMOS compatible processes. However, silicon is a poor light emitter, and the integration of compound semiconductor lasers with silicon photonics remains a common challenge.

The SiEPICfab-ePIXfab Workshop on Laser Integration in Silicon Photonics brings together experts in various fields to discuss the most promising approaches of laser integration and the applications that will be enabled by this capability. Participation in experimental MPWs using two of these approaches (transfer printing and photonic wire bonding) will be offered as an option in this workshop

Workshop:

  • Dates: November 15 to November 18, 2021: 5 PM (CET) / 8 AM (PST) and will end at 7 PM (CET) / 10 AM (PST)
  • Format: Virtual on Zoom

Experimental MPW:

The workshop participants will get a chance to join an experimental MPW where they can choose one of the two laser integration modalities for the fabrication of a laser-integrated silicon photonics chip. The two laser integration options in experimental MPW include:

  • Laser integration with silicon photonics chips by micro-transfer printing
  • Laser integration with silicon photonics chips by photonic wire bonding

Target Audience:

  • Strategic and technical decision-makers from the industry as well as their R&D staff
  • Academic researchers and students with an ambition to move forward the state-of-the-art in silicon photonics or in applications enabled by silicon photonics
