InP on SiN Photonic Integrated circuits REalized through wafer-scale micro-transfer printing

Project description

High-performance hybrid quantum photonic circuits

The EU-funded INSPIRE project aims to revolutionise the production of photonic integrated circuit technology by combining energy-efficient indium phosphide circuits and mass-manufactured silicon nitride photonic-based circuits using wafer-scale micro-transfer printing processes. This technology should align photonic circuits with accuracy better than 1 μm, leading to high-performance, low-cost photonic integrated circuits. INSPIRE technology will be validated in three different applications: a distributed fibre sensing readout unit suited to predictive maintenance in civil engineering and transportation, a microwave photonics radio-frequency pulse generator and an optical switch fabric to reduce the energy use of data centres.
