Event description

Description

Come to MIT this summer for a week of intensive short courses on integrated photonics: materials, devices, EPDA software training and integrated photonic circuit design, chip fabrication, packaging, testing, and system applications.

Available education tracks:

PIC Fundamentals

  • Short courses on photonic integrated circuit systems-level drivers, materials & devices, Process Design Kit, chip fabrication and manufacturing, process variation, integrated photonics area applications, chip packaging and optical/electrical test characterization.

Applied PIC Design

  • Training workshops in photonic integrated circuit design with AIM-compatible automated software, integrated photonics area applications, chip packaging & test characterization. (Participant vendors - Synopsys, Lumerical, Mentor, Cadence)

Register for one Education Track

Registration in either Education Track enrolls attendees to participate in a week-long Design Project to evaluate and propose a conceptual design of an Application Specific PIC in datacom, RF signal processing, sensing, or LIDAR imaging.

Learn with instructors from MIT, Dartmouth College, University of Delaware, University of Rochester and RIT

  • Identify optical components market trends and assess electronic-photonic integration benefits in emerging industry applications: datacom, RF signal processors, sensors, LIDAR imaging.

  • Evaluate the performance of silicon photonic devices and foundry chip production methods.

  • Learn about the standardized approach of Process Design Kits (PDKs) to begin designing basic photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for fabrication with AIM Photonics.

  • Use leading automated design tools from vendors who collaborate intensively with the PIC foundry production process used by AIM Photonics.

  • Learn about PIC packaging evolution and test characterization methods.

  • Interpret application design tradeoffs subject to the manufacturing constraints for PICs comprised of thousands of integrated device components.

  • Develop foundational content to support and promote (i) integrated photonic competency within a company, or (ii) an integrated photonics track within a community college or university.

Network with a cohort of colleagues from academia and industry.

Meet leading Electronic Photonic Design Automation software vendors from Cadence, Lumerical, Mentor, PhoeniX Software, and Synopsis, to review the latest achievements in circuit simulation, layout, and design rule check.

Collaborate and present a design team project that synthesizes your learning objectives.

Admission:

  • $1,500 for 5-day Fundamentals package with Networking Dinner

  • $1,500 for 5-day Design package with Networking Dinner

*A limited number of discounted spots will be available for professors and students who are also US citizens. Please contact Julie Diop if you are interested in pursuing this option.

Who should attend?

AIM summer Academy 2019 provides an introduction to integrated photonics and associated commercial applications in its manufacturing supply chain. Students ranging from beginners at the senior undergraduate level to faculty interested in starting an Integrated Photonics track at their schools will benefit. The content will specifically prepare professional engineers in the electronic and photonic hardware industries for us of the latest integrated photonic technology and its EPDA modeling/layout tools. Executives and technologists including planners, engineers, and scientists participating in the optical and electronic components technology supply chain will acquire a working knowledge of the field.

The AIM Photonics Summer Academy introduces attendees to the prerequisite skill set and provides contextual expertise to complete AIM’s online training course for design submissions to Multi-Project Wafer prototype runs at the AIM Photonics Institute’s fabrication facility.

**US laws and regulations prevent MIT from allowing persons ordinarily resident in certain countries and regions from participating in AIM Summer Academy. Consequently, individuals ordinarily resident in Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and the Crimea region of Ukraine may not register. In addition, persons listed on the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Parties list maintained by the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control and the Entities List maintained by the U.S. Department of Commerce are prohibited from participating.
