The focus of this topical meeting is to explore new trends and applications, particularly, in the field of silicon photonics, but also in guided-wave optics and related areas. The applications range from devices for data centre applications to mid-infrared (MIR) sensing. New developments based on waveguide devices, enhanced light-matter interactions, or energy-efficient photonics materials are particularly welcome.                    




• Design, simulation, modelling and fabrication of optical interconnects

• Optical on chip routing architectures and technologies and related design concepts for high speed

• Low power photonic integrated circuits (PICs)

• CMOS-compatible optical sources and detectors

• Optimization of light emission and absorption for data processing using materials such as SiGe, SiN, TaO5, III/IVs, etc.

• Advanced monolithic and hybrid processing techniques for the fabrication of photonic structures

• Devices and strategies for the advancement of PICs in silicon and other materials, including advances in testing and packaging
