Photonic Integrated Circuit Modules Based on Silicon Nitride Waveguides

Silicon nitride integrated photonic chips are at the heart of developments in diagnostic testing, wireless communications and medical imaging. By integrating functions into solid state chips, we offer improvements in processing speed, information density, operational performance, flexibility and cost. In this presentation we give an overview of the benefits of photonic integration and highlight the specific value of silicon nitride as a waveguide material for a broad range of applications.
