Integrated photonic systems on Silicon – Presented by Jason Orcutt, IBM Research 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.
Monolithic CMOS silicon photonics technology enables functional system on chip integration of complete electro-optic subsystems and single-chip transceivers. A complete set of building block components has been designed and integrated within a single manufacturing process that targets O-band data communication standards including direct-detect and 4×25 Gb/s WDM transceivers; however, the nanophotonic building blocks and diverse process features can be utilized for a wide variety of applications, including environmental trace gas sensing, medical diagnostics, and quantum interconnects. Automation, simulation and verification support for the optoelectronic elements in industry standard CAD tools enables small teams to reliably design complex systems.
