  • Description

    By following the standard CMOS fabrication processes in the microelectronics industry, silicon or III/V photonics are emerging as the platforms of choice for large-scale photonic integration circuits (PICs) that offer the well-known advantages of low-cost at high-volume and high yield as well as scalability, respectively. However, co-integration of electronics with photonics is becoming critical for actually exploiting the high bandwidth, reduced power consumption, further shrink footprint and most importantly guaranteeing all this at lower cost. Novel co-integration schemes and further improved functionalities are needed to go beyond the limitations posed by the intrinsic material capabilities and speed imitations at the electro-optical interfaces. This workshop provides opportunities to discuss and debate the latest technologies on which photonics and electronics can be co-integrated and synergically operate to satisfy requirements in bandwidth and speed. The aim of this workshop is to compare performance, pinpoint limitations and stimulate the envisioning of novel schemes for future technology development.
