Photonic Integration Week, PIW2018

  • We are pleased to announce the 2nd Photonic Integration Week, PIW2018, which will be held in Valencia (Spain) at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia from Monday January 15th to Friday January 19th, 2018. It will combine industrial presentations, business to business meetings, scientific and technical speakers and training activities.

    The week will start with two Workshops under the framework of the project H2020 PICs4All (Photonic Integration Circuits Accessible to Everyone) and the Spanish Network of Excellence PIC4TB (Photonic Integration Circuits for Telecommunications and Bio Sciences). Industrial keynote speakers will provide the commercial perspective of use of photonic integration technologies at different positions of the supply chain, from component manufacturers, system integrators and end users of these technologies. Scientific invited speakers will present their latest achievements and prospects of use of these technologies in research and development, and caveats for the design aimed at Bio and Telecom applications will be given in 4 master lessons by the members of the PIC4TB network.

    Both Workshops will be followed by a 3 days training on the Design of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) given by the design house VLC Photonics. Visit the following link to know about the detailed program and for registration: VLC photonics PIC design training.

    1st Photonic Integration Week, January 2017 – Brief Summary

    The 1st Photonic Integration Week took place in Valencia (Spain) at the Universitat Politècnica de València from Monday 16th to Friday 20th, January 2017. The event combined industrial presentations, business to business meetings, scientific and technical speakers and training activities.

    The event started with two Workshops (2.5 days) under the framework of the project H2020 PICs4All (Photonic Integration Circuits Accessible to Everyone) and the Spanish Network of Excellence PIC4TB (Photonic Integration Circuits for Telecommunications and Bio Sciences).

    Industrial keynote speakers provided the commercial perspective of use of photonic integration technologies at different positions of the supply chain, from component manufacturers and system integrators to end users of these technologies.

    Scientific invited speakers presented their latest achievements and prospects of use of these technologies in research and development, and caveats for the design aimed at Bio and Telecom applications were given in 4 master lessons by the members of the PIC4TB network.

    Most of the invited speakers participating in the event belonged to the industry (53%), followed by the academy (37%) and clusters in photonics (10%) as shown in the following graph. The type of activities and the application fields by the speakers are also shown.

     

     

    The Southern European Cluster in Photonics and Optics (SECPhO) organized business to business meetings facilitating the cooperation between companies and researchers. SECPhO also organized an activity where attendees located their logo in a map of coordinates pointing their activity on the value chain on several application fields.

    A YouTube channel with the presentations authorized to be publicly released is available in:

    Once the speakers coming from industry presented their achievements and prospects of use of PIC technologies in research and development, the members of the PIC4TB network gave 4 master lessons on practical design considerations for the development of Photonic Integrated Circuits for Bio and Telecom applications.

    The Workshop was followed by a 2.5 days training on the Design of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) given by the design company VLC Photonics.
