At Photonic West (4-6 Feb, 2020, San Francisco, USA) ) and at Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (10-12 March, 2020 San Francisco, USA ), CEA-Leti presented the evolution of the silicon photonics platform developed in the framework of the institute. Particularly, this platform enables the integration of two optical waveguide layers – in silicon and silicon-nitride – with III-V laser sources. Moreover, using Lightsuite Photonics Compiler from Mentor Graphics, it is now possible to automatize the placement and routing operations of thousands of individual components in order to address advanced applications such as computer communications and neuromorphic computation.
