Photonic Integration Conference

Business models for applying photonic integration | Semicon meets photonics | Photonic Integration Conference 2017

The 3rd edition of the Photonic Integration Conference organised by Jakajima will take place on September 26, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

The event includes a conference and an exhibition and is a must-attend for industry experts, researchers and PIC enthusiasts.

This edition will focus on business models for applying photonic integration, cases of photonic integration in optical sensing, lighting & energy, IT and telecom – current situation and future prospects.

Speakers from AIM Photonics, PhotonDelta, BRIDG – Bridging the Innovation Development Gap, Tyndall National Institute, University of Glasgow, Fiber To The Home COUNCIL EUROPE, Lightwave Logic, LioniX International and CEA-LETI will be there to talk about the topics of interest.

The conference program features 13 speakers in total and also includes a session on “Semicon meets Photonics”, hosted by The Business Cluster Semiconductors Netherlands, where you can catch a glimpse into the important role that photonics is expected to play in the future of the semiconductor industry.

Quotes from presentations:

  • Dan Holladay, Executive Director Operations and Technology Programs, BRIDG – Bridging the Innovation Development Gap – Interview: What is the most thrilling development in the photonics field right now?
    “One is putting III-V materials on silicon, so we can integrate better. Another is being able to automate the integration of a photonics device into a silicon device, like putting the lasers on the chips. Either integrate them into the chip or interconnect them to the chip with an automated technology.”
  • John H. Marsh, Professor of Optoelectronic Systems / Dean for Transnational Education, University of Glasgow, United Kingdom, on “Photonic integration in the access market – has the moment finally arrived?”: Photonic Integrated Circuits are a critical enabler in the major markets of communications, sensing, healthcare, and optical signal processing. Optical communications is the largest of these, with a 60% market share. Integration in optical transceivers is predicted to grow rapidly, with revenue growing from $4bn in 2018 to $6bn by 2021, while that for transceivers based on discrete components will plateau at $4bn. Costs must be reduced however, and the barriers faced by photonics will be contrasted with historical progress in electronics. Recommendations around specific integration technologies will be made to address the particular challenges faced in the access/PON market. Read the interview

The exhibition will host the latest product developments of Keysight Technologies, Laser 2000, Hamamatsu Photonics, PhotonDelta, EPIC, PhotonicsNL, Light Tec and JePPIX..

The 3rd edition of the Photonic Integration Conference is more than a conference and more than an exhibition. It is an industry event with lively discussions around new photonic developments that you do not want to miss!
