Silicon photonics results presented at SPHPC 2019

Silicon photonics holds great promise for future high-performance computing (HPC) applications.

The second SPHPC conference on high-performance computing was held on May 29 and 30, 2019 in the United States, under the aegis of HPe, the University of Colorado, and Polytechnique Montréal.

Benoît Charbonnier, who heads the IRT Nanoelec silicon photonics program, was a guest speaker at the conference. He presented our latest results and, in particular, the development of an end-to-end platform for the fabrication of complex photonic circuits. The platform’s capabilities include very-low-loss silicon waveguides, SiN integrated components, and the monolithic integration of laser sources.

Mr. Charbonnier highlighted the CEA-Mentor Graphics partnership within IRT Nanoelec—a collaboration that resulted in a joint demonstration using the Tanner L-edit software suite.
