This training aims to give a jump-start on PIC technology from a fabless manufacturing perspective by introducing PIC technology - through seminars by experts, and PIC design flow - through hands-on training on Photonics Design Automation (PDA) tools, such as Luceda IPKISS and CST STUDIO SUITE® .
The use of CMOS fabrication technology has enabled large scale integration of photonic components at chip level – called Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs). The concepts of fabless manufacturing and multi-project-wafer (MPW) services are now widely available for PICs, for various base materials. Low-cost access to generic fabrication processes for rapid prototyping and low volume production has shifted the emphasis to design innovation. This course intends to introduce basics of PIC technology and provide introductory hands-on training on PIC designing.
The training is structured in two parts:
