Integrated Photonics (PI)

Integrated Photonics

The field of integrated optics is rapidly advancing due to the recent development in semiconductor and dielectric manufacturing which has enabled the miniaturization of both optical and optoelectronic devices. This group aims at explorations of new material platforms, novel nanofabrication techniques, integrated optical components as well as the development of large-scale photonic circuits with advanced functionalities for applications including optical communications, spectroscopy, laser ranging, optical computing, and quantum information. We also provide content (e.g. panel discussions, webinars, and social media) on current research trends in areas such as optical frequency combs, topological photonics, quantum photonics, microwave photonics. One of the most important goals of this group is to encourage and stimulate interactions between academic research and industry R&D on integrated optics, enabling innovation and fostering technology and product development.

Upcoming Event

OSA Integrated Photonics Technical Group Career Round Table

Tuesday, 15 September, 20:00 - 21:00

You are invited to join us at Frontiers in Optics for a career roundtable discussion for integrated photonics related companies. You will have the chance to hear from experts in areas including quantum photonics, LIDAR, telecommunications and nanofabrication and then speak with them in a small group setting.
