Photonic integrated circuits, status and prospects, Prof. Lars Thylen, KTH
Integrated photonics, conceived in the 60s at Bell Labs (under the name integrated optics ) and, somewhat erroneously, seen as an analog to integrated electronics, has shown a “Moore-like” development regarding footprint , which has decreased drastically over the decades. The lecture will comprise some waveguide basics and treat active and passive devices such as modulators, switches, wavelength selective devices. Focus will be on the possibilities to shrink device dimensions far below the optical wavelength and reduce power dissipation. The latter is especially important in view of the rapidly increasing power dissipation in data centers but is of course important for most applications. The role of optical interconnects in data centers will be treated briefly.

Silicon is and has been the microelectronic material per excellence and it is now also taking the lead for photonic circuitry. Silicon photonics is being used for manufacturing optical integrated passive structures, such as waveguides, Mach-Zehnder modulators, as well as, optical active devices such as micro ring resonators, and also Germanium-based detectors. We will review a few examples of actives and passive devices that we have designed and manufactured in our labs for both data center and radio links.
