​Training in Photonic Integrated Circuits in New York City

From Oct 19 through 23, 2015, a unique week-long training on Photonic Integration is being held at Columbia University in New York City. The training covers all aspects needed for developing Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) such as a system level overview, a component tutorial, design and layout software, foundries, packaging, and business topics such as 'scaling to production'.

The training covers all key material systems including Silicon Photonics, InP based materials, as well as the TriPlex (SiO2/Si3N4) material system. The program has the full support of over 15 companies and several universities. The tutorial sessions will be conducted by Michael Hochberg from Coriant, Prof. Keren Bergman from Columbia, and Prof. Jonathan Klamkin from UCSB.
