Does the world need general-purpose programmable photonics?

A presentation by invited speaker Wim Bogaerts, Professor in Silicon Photonics, Ghent University-IMEC / Founder, Luceda Photonics. HE graduated in engineering (applied physics) at Ghent University in June 1998. He joined the Photonics Research Group of Ghent University-IMEC for a PhD, building the design and technology foundations for IMEC’s first silicon photonics technology platform on 200mm CMOS tools. This led to collaborations with tens of partners, growing into a silicon photonics multi-project-wafer service in IMEC, eventually known as ePIXfab. To enable the design of these photonic chips, the PI and his group developed the software package IPKISS, a parametric design framework for photonic circuits.
