OIP4NWE pilot line; waiting in the wings!
The OIP4NWE project aims at establishing an open innovation pilot line for the development of generic photonic integration technology. Equipment manufacturers, a pure-play foundry and researchers collaborate to establish the infrastructure and processes dedicated to the pilot production of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) based on Indium Phosphide. The capabilities include the whole process chain from e.g. epitaxial deposition of materials, structuring, isolation up to a final packaging.
