Students propose, model, design, and layout a Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) using active silicon photonics technology. The layout is designed based on the fabrication technology available from IME Singapore, providing students with an opportunity to design into an advanced photonics manufacturing process. Fabrication is available, at additional cost, via CMC Microsystems.
At least one course at the graduate level on optics, waveguides, or lasers (e.g. EECE 584, 594), a CMC Silicon Photonics workshop, or approval from the instructor.
By the end of the course, it is expected that students will be able to:
• Model a nanophotonic device or circuit, both analytically and numerically
• Design a photonic device or circuit, including necessary test structures
• Create a mask layout of a photonic device or circuit
• Write a report on a photonic device or circuit.
