Invitation to workshop on “Integration of novel materials into silicon photonics

AMIRES and projects POSEIDON and INSPIRE cordially invite you to join workshop on “Integration of novel materials into silicon photonics” which will take place on 21-22 November 2022, in Aachen, Germany.

In the past decade, the field of silicon photonics has grown tremendously, exploiting standard materials and processes of the semiconductor industry for realizing complex photonic integrated circuits with high yield and high volume. In some cases, however, this approach does not suffice. The integration of novel materials is increasingly seen as a promising route to enhance the functionality of standard silicon and silicon-nitride photonic platforms, and to overcome their limitations – in particular concerning light emission, ultrafast modulation, and nonlinear applications.

The scope of the workshop is to present the recent advances of the field, and to discuss the possible advantages and challenges posed by different materials – from quantum dots, to perovskites, to 2D-materials, etc. – and by different integration strategies.

Registration: To attend the workshop, please register until November 3, 2022. Registration is free of charges.

Date: Monday, November 21, 2022, 12 noon — Tuesday, November 22, 2022, 16 pm

Venue: Forum M, Buchkremerstraße 1-7, 52062 Aachen, Germany
