Platforms for Photonic ICs


By Katarzyna Lawniczuk

Within the LightJumps project, JePPIX aims to bridge the gap between RTD on novel photonic technologies and market introduction for affordable novel photonics products. We want to build awareness among SMEs about photonic integration and its potential, as well as identify and diminish limitations for implementation of innovative photonic ICs products for SMEs. Our tasks include providing and supporting access to PIC design and fabrication, outreach, promotional and dissemination activities, developing a roadmap for photonic integration, as well as providing training and educational services.

JePPIX closely collaborates with Europe’s key players in the field of photonic integration, including manufacturing and packaging partners, photonic CAD software partners, R&D labs and photonic IC design houses. With JePPIX you can get access to the Indium Phosphide (InP)-based monolithic integration platforms of Oclaro, Fraunhofer HHI and SMART Photonics and the low-loss dielectric TriPleX waveguide technology of LioniX. Having these technology platforms, we are the world’s leader in foundry-based photonic integration, offering full active-passive on-chip integration.

Katarzyna Lawniczuk is the JePPIX coordinator.
