Project description

High-performance integrated photonic circuits based on indium phosphide

Cloud, 5G and IoT applications are pushing modern networks to the edge to satisfy the stringent requirements for high capacity and low latency. Photonic integrated technologies are promising to tackle the new challenges and bring new products and services to the market. The EU-funded PICaboo project plans to develop new building blocks on a photonic integrated circuit (PIC) platform made of indium phosphide. Compact models of the building blocks will be compiled in process design kit, PDK-compatible libraries, allowing designers to explore their use in a wide range of applications. PICaboo's PIC demonstrators are expected to transform the optical metro and access networks in terms of speed, power consumption and cost.
