06 - 10 March 2022 | San Diego Convention Center, USA


Imec is proud to present the talk of Bart Kuyken, Ghent University and imec on Heterogeneous III-V-on Silicon Nitride Mode Locked Lasers during the track on Active optical devices and photonic integrated circuits.

Imec will be present at booth 5208 with research on photonics.

We will co-organize the following event: Progress and Roadmap in Silicon Photonics Foundries and Supply Chains.

09 March 08:00 – 10:00

Commercial foundry services and supply chain enablement play a critical role in the ecosystem, particularly to realize the scale and low-cost promise of silicon photonics (SiPho).  In this panel, we will invite SiPho-related foundries to discuss their short- and long-term commercial offering and roadmap to advance SiPho technology for next-gen applications in datacom/telecom (800G and beyond, 5G, CPO), optical compute, optical sensing (LiDAR, spectroscopy), and more. Topics covered will include state-of-the-art photonics building blocks, III-V light source implementation, E-O integration/packaging, fiber attachment solutions, design enablement and reliability & qualification testing.
