IPSR-I 2020 Integrated Photonics Roadmap Launch, 12/10/2020

A number of notable industry leaders who contributed to the IPSR-I touch upon key findings such as the potential of PICs to shape the future for a better society and how the IPSR-I contributes towards this. Our goal is to provide a better understanding of the opportunities that lay ahead of us with this technology and what is needed to achieve mass-adoption on a global scale.

Roadmap Sensor Webinar, 8/10/17

Presenters: Anu Agarwal (MIT) and Ben Miller (U Rochester)

This talk will present a progress report on the development of a roadmap for Integrated Photonic Sensors Manufacturing. 

Presenter: William Green (IBM)

This talk will review the development and performance of a cost-eflective silicon photonic trace gas sensing platform, which leverages silicon photonic waveguide and packaging technologies to perform on-chip evanescent field spectroscopy of methane. 

You can find Ben Miller's presentation here, and Will Green's here.
