European electro-optic and nonlinear PIC platform based on lithium niobate

Project description

A novel photonics platform and a fully European supply chain to support it

Photonics integrated circuits (PICs), much like their electronic counterparts, are chips that can contain hundreds of photonic components, harnessing photons instead of electrons. They are the disruptive technology supporting a plethora of next-generation high-performance, low-energy and miniaturised devices. The EU-funded ELENA project is developing photonic building blocks based on promising lithium niobate that will improve the existing functionalities of PICs and enable novel ones. The project will ensure their rapid and streamlined application via associated packaging that allows interfacing with optical fibres and is compatible with other PIC platforms. Finally, the technology will be showcased in four PIC prototypes in the fields of telecommunications, quantum technologies and microwave photonics.
