Integration Technologies for High-Speed Neuromorphic Photonics

The impact of the photonic integration platform of choice on the performance of a novel hybrid optoelectronic neuron based on time division multiplexing that we recently proposed is analyzed and discussed. An invited speaker presentation by Giampiero Contestabile, Associate Professor at Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies.
