MIT To Host AIM Photonics Summer Academy On PIC Fundamentals
Course consists of a mix of lectures, demonstrations and design challenges that explore the creation and application of photonic integrated circuits (PICs)
AIM Photonics Academy -- the educational initiative of the AIM Photonics Institute, a USA Advanced Institute for Manufacturing -- will offer three- and five-day intensive courses in the fundamentals of integrated photonics over the period July 24-28 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, US.
At the summer 2017 event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about
- photonic materials properties, performance and device processing
- design principles for integrated photonic devices
- photonic circuit architectures for the silicon platform and its system applications
- manufacturing constraints and guidelines for high volume manufacturing
And the course consists of a mix of lectures, demonstrations and design challenges covering topics such as principles of planar waveguide devices; passive and active integrated photonic devices; monolithic and hybrid chip process flow; electronic-photonic co-design; manufacturing data analytics; as well as chip test and packaging.
