Illinois Nano EP Seminar Series Fall 2011: Current Status of Coherent Large-Scale InP Photonic Integrated Circuits
13 Dec 2011 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Frederick A. Kish, Jr.
The current state-of-the-art for large-scale InP photonic integrated circuits (PICs) is reviewed with a focus on the devices
and technologies that are driving the commercial scaling of these highly integrated devices. Specifically, high-capacity
dense wavelength division multiplexed (DWDM) transmitter and receiver photonic integrated circuits (PICs) are
reviewed with a focus on next generation devices: >500 Gb/s and 1 Tb/s coherent multi-channel transmitter and
receiver InP PICs. These large-scale PICs integrate hundreds of devices onto a single monolithic InP chip and enable
significant reductions in cost, packaging complexity, size, fiber coupling, and power consumption which enable benefits
at the component and system level.
