(Breaking the Barriers of Optical Integration)Challenging current Thinking FP7-ICT FET 2013-2016
BBOI project aims to break the limitations of aggregating hundreds of functionalities into large scale photonic circuits boosting the complexity of photonic architectures well beyond the state of the art, but without increasing power consumption in proportion. A full-optioned multifunctional silicon photonic platform will be developed integrating on board novel sensor and actuator technologies for a reliable real-time monitoring, tuning and reconfiguration of the circuit behaviour.
BBOI success will make photonics to penetrate deeply in various ICT areas where conventional technologies are approaching their performance limits.
(Photonic Integrated Circuits Accessible to Everyone)Coordination and Support Action H2020-ICT 2016-2018
PICs4All aims to increase the impact of photonics and enable access to the advanced photonic integrated circuit (PIC) technologies for academia, research institutes, SMEs and larger companies. This will be achieved by establishing a European network of Application Support Centres (ASCs) in the field of PIC technology. The main task of the ASCs is to lower the barrier to Researchers and SMEs for applying advanced PICs, and thus to increase the awareness of the existence of the worldwide unique facility provided by JePPIX www.jeppix.eu (InP and TriPleX PIC design, manufacturing, testing and packaging).
