Presentation will begin: Thursday, January 12, 2023 - 2:25 PM EST
Presented by: Nicholas Fahrenkopf, AIM Photonics
Various types of silicon photonic technologies are available for prototyping or proof-of-concept research. While photonic integrated circuits (PICs) have an established market for datacom and telecom applications, their capability extends to biomedical applications, quantum computers, precision navigation and timing, lidar, and more. Fahrenkopf reviews the unique challenges that the different application spaces have and how foundries are addressing these issues.
