Presented by: Douwe Geuzebroek, LioniX International
Silicon nitride (SiN) is fast becoming a new standard passive platform for photonic integrated circuits (PICs). Motivated by the ultralow optical losses and broad wavelength band carriable by SiN waveguides, many industries are finding the material a perfect fit for their applications. In industries ranging from telecom and metrology to biosensing and quantum processing, cutting-edge high-tech devices have a SiN PIC within.
Although incapable of generating light, SiN has the lowest optical losses of all PIC platforms, and its adaptability and ease of integration with other platforms make it a natural choice for coupling, splitting, and modulating light. Geuzebroek outlines the properties that make SiN such an effective material option for many PIC applications, and he discusses the challenges of and solutions for implementing the material in chips, assemblies, and modules.
