Integrated Microwave Photonics: The evolution from ASICs to Universal Processors – Presented by Jose Capmany, Universitat Politecnica de Valencia

Integrated Microwave Photonics: The evolution from ASICs to Universal Processors – Presented by Jose Capmany, Universitat Politecnica de Valencia/ Iteam Research Institute at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

This paper will be devoted to describe the two salient approaches that are available for the implementation of Integrated Microwave Photonics (MWP) chips from a functional point of view. On one hand, we will review the recent progress in Application-Specific Photonic Integrated Circuits (ASPICs), where a particular circuit and chip configuration is designed to optimally perform a particular MWP functionality [2]. On another hand, recent progress will be reported on a radically different approach, the universal MWP signal processor architecture that can be integrated on a chip and is capable of performing all the main functionalities by suitable software programming of its control signals [7-9].

Photonic Integration in Converged Data Centre Systems – Presented by Richard Pitwon, Seagate  at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

System embedded photonic interconnect has been a strong area of focus in the European funding programmes for collaborative research and technological development over the past 15 years. This talk will provide an introduction to Seagate Systems collaborative research and development activities to address the viability of commercial deployment of photonic interconnect in large scale data centre environments including at the system, board and ultimately chip level. Seagate is developing an international cross-project initiative, which will allow advanced technologies from different international projects to be tested with respect to one another.

The effect of photonic integration on the evolution of communication systems – Presented by Hercules Avramopoulos, Photonics Communications Research Laboratory National TU of Athens at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Over the last decades, the ubiquitous necessity for high-bandwidth and low-cost has instigated the penetration of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) though all the major application areas of Photonics, designating them as the fundamental building block of Datacom, Telecom and Sensing implementations. In this talk, state of the art photonic integration technologies for communications are discussed as well as technology requirements and challenges for future applications.

Photonic ICs for ultrahigh speed and coherent systems – Presented by Andreas Umbach, Finisar at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Photonic Integrated Circuits both in the InP and SiP material systems are becoming more and more popular as they provide solutions to the challenges of more and more miniaturization, optical and rf interconnects and the increasing cost pressure for optical components. Optical coherent transmission systems and photonic microwave photonics are application areas for highly complex and high speed PICs. Receiver PICs and transmitter PICs will be presented and discussed. Continue reading “Photonic ICs for ultrahigh speed and coherent systems – Presented by Andreas Umbach, Finisar”
