AIM Photonics Member Successes and Updates

Tuesday, 10 March, 11:00 - 12:00

Theater III

Session organized by AIM Photonics


Session Description
AIM Photonics is in its fifth year of existence. In these past five years it has grown the Integrated Photonic Chip (PIC) ecosystem, established a world class 300mm PIC fab and packaging facility with best-in-class performance, and developed significant new technology in data comm, sensors, RF analog, design, and manufacturing technologies. Much of this success would not be possible without the support of AIM Photonics members and partners. In a first for AIM Photonics, a number of key members and partners will present their research and commercial successes to the public at the globally recognized OFC conference.

This panel will have four speakers from member organizations of AIM Photonics focusing on the following four topics:

  1. The latest integrated photonic design tools available via AIM Photonics PDK and design service
  2. Details on new microfluidic sensor technology using integrated photonics
  3. Update on tooling advancements enabling quantum dots on silicon
  4. Quantum photonics update.
