The indium phosphide (InP) photonic integration technologies offer an access to a comprehensive  set of active and passive functions allowing to create application specific photonic system-on-chip (SoC) for a wide range of applications. Realization of photonic SoC requires familiarity with PIC-based product creation chain. Decisions and choices made in early-stage planning and at the design phase are critical to successful prototypes and/or manufacturability of the product at scale.

This 3-day long course provides trainees with the fundamentals and understanding of creating InP PIC based products. On the completion adepts will be able to  quantitatively assess their concepts and make informed decisions on upskilling and outsourcing. These will enable development of custom and scalable PIC based solutions with reduced design-in windows for new products.

This unique ‘hands-on’ experience gives the attendees an access to the state-of-the-art fabrication and characterization facilities at TU/e. Dedicated training materials, access to remote experiments, tutorials and mentoring by world-class technical experts will be provided.

  • Fundamentals of integrated photonics product creation flow and supply chain.
  • Design strategy for test, production and manufacturability (DfX)
  • Handling of photonic ICs
  • Electronic-Photonic test and measurement orientation
  • Understanding of how to quantitatively assess own concepts
  • Ability to make informed decisions on upskilling and outsourcing
