Event description

Description

The fast-emerging field of integrated photonics, which enables photonic and electronic devices to communicate with one another within an integrated circuit package, is revolutionizing fields like low-power cloud computing, ultra-high-speed wireless, smart sensing, and augmented imaging. In this bootcamp, we'll cover key concepts and provide hands-on training using state-of-the-art tools.

Rather than listen to lectures, students will solve problems using lab equipment to test photonic chips, which will prepare them for the challenges they will face in the workforce. Students will use chips that don't require electrical power, also known as passive chips.




Where: Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

When: Jan 13th-17th 2020

What students will learn:

  • Coupling of fiber to on-chip waveguide - Couple light into an SOI chip using butt coupling and grating coupling
  • Measurement of integrated photonics devices - Collect data from straight waveguides, spirals, and ring resonators
  • Basic concepts - TE/TM modes, confinement, evanescence, on-chip guiding
  • Virtual Lab - Game-based educational simulation to build intuition about on-chip light propagation
  • Data analysis - Python and/or Matlab to characterize devices based on real data
  • Software design tool simulations - Principles of design of integrated photonic devices
  • Introduction to integrated photonics packaging - Laser die packaging

What you need to bring: Laptop and Lab notebook

What you get to keep: Manual with detailed descriptions of integrated photonics experiments.


Note: We are accepting only 12 registrants


This bootcamp is hands-on, so most of the learning is accomplished through doing. To guarantee attendees a rich hands-on experience and one-on-one interaction with instructors, we have limited the registration to 12. The $3000 registration fee does not cover housing. It covers the technical teaching staff for their time with participants, and for coffee and light refreshments, as well as lunch for five days and a networking dinner.

If you are traveling to MIT from out of town, you can find a list of hotel options here.
