Project Aim

It is the aim of the project to bring the application of photonic integrated circuits and micro-systems in advanced products within reach for a broad class of SMEs by reducing their required investment costs by more than an order of magnitude. This will be done by developing a knowledge-based technology for production of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) that will combine an increase in flexibility with a dramatic reduction of cost. It will lay the foundation for a breakthrough of PICs into a wide range of applications. With this aim, a consortium  consisting of Europe‚Äôs leading PIC manufacturers, photonic CAD companies and InP-semiconductor research laboratories has joined forces with a number of pilot users, both SMEs and larger companies.
