Webinar on Micro-Transfer Printing for Heterogeneous Silicon Photonic Integrated Circuits

12 - 12 June 2024 | Hosted By: OPTICA

June 12th, 2024
9:00 - 10:00
Eastern Daylight/Summer Time (US & Canada) (UTC -04:00)


Presenter: Gunther Roelkens, Guest professor at  Photonics Research Group, imec research group at Ghent University 

Gunther Roelkens received a degree in electrical engineering from Ghent University, Belgium, in 2002 and a PhD from the same university in 2007, at the Department of Information Technology (INTEC), where he is currently full professor. In 2008, he was a visiting scientist in IBM TJ Watson Research Center, New York. His research interest includes the heterogeneous integration of III-V semiconductors and other materials on top of silicon waveguide circuits and electronic/photonic co-integration.


In this webinar hosted by the Integrated Photonics Technical Group, Gunther Roelkens from Ghent University will present his work on heterogeneous integration through micro-transfer printing of opto-electronic components and material films on Si/SiN photonics integrated circuits with minimal modification to the existing silicon photonics process flow.
