Indium-Phosphide Pilot Line for up-scaled, low-barrier, self-sustained, PIC ecosystem

Project description

A European manufacturing platform spurs photonics innovation

The first metal oxide semiconductor integrated circuit (IC) was commercialised more than half a century ago. Since then, ICs have revolutionised the electronics industry. By putting all the components on a single chip, ICs save space, weight and energy while enhancing performance and reducing costs related to production and packaging. Photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are poised for the next revolution, this time with photons rather than electrons, and they are a perfect match for today's (and tomorrow's) fibre optics and ever-increasing optical devices and communications technologies. However, to truly unleash innovation, Europe now needs PIC manufacturers to support its PIC developers. The EU-funded InPulse project beings together a consortium of world leaders in PICs to deliver the solutions required to give Europe the competitive edge in this critical technology sector.
