498. JENAer Optikkolloquium

Photonic Integrated Circuits – From Data Centers to Medical Diagnostics

16 May 2023 | 17:00 – 19:00 Uhr | Abbe Center of Photonics oder per Zoom

Video streaming, phone calls, data transfer – ever more parts of our lives are happening online. Huge amounts of data need to be sent back and forth so that Netflix, Skype & our personal Dropbox can work on our computers and TVs at home in the quality we’ve become accustomed to. That’s only possible thanks to optical communications. And at the heart of it all are photonic integrated circuits (PICs). Their compact size and energy efficiency in particular make them attractive data transfer options.
Integrating optical functionalities on a chip is by far not a new idea. Almost four decades of research and development and todays semiconductor manufacturing technologies resulted in a technology, that is currently accessing more and more application fields such as optical an quantum computing, industrial metrology and automotive LIDAR as well as healthcare and life sciences.
This talk will give an introduction to the technology as well as current trends and challenges. Furthermore it will provide a brief overview of established and emerging applications including examples of Zeiss projects using photonic integrated circuits.

Karlsruhe Days of Optics and Photonics (KDOP) 2023

16-17 November 2023, International Department of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Karlsruhe, Germany

KSOP’s qualification both as research and education platform for the future’s greats in Optics & Photonics is based on close partnerships with leaders from industry and academia. To deepen these knowledge networks, KSOP provides the bi-annual Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics.

Every other year for two days, the Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics brings together leading experts of Optics & Photonics to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). During the conference, each of the five research areas of KSOP is highlighted by plenary lectures. The lectures will be held by an invited expert in the respective field.

In addition, all KSOP doctoral researchers present their research in a poster session.

This turns KDOP into an efficient format to initiate collaboration with national as well as international partners from industry and academia. With an average of 150 participants, we are proud to provide a renowned forum in the Optics & Photonics world.
