3D Glass Waveguides for Photonic Integrated Systems

The miniaturization of photonic integrated systems requires new monolithically integrated components and micro-fabrication technologies able to guarantee high resolution. This is also now required to enable a wide and cost-effective deployment, while increasing the number of functionalities.

The FEMTOPRINT® manufacturing platform allows writing 3D waveguides within the bulk of the glass. It can be used as photonic wire connections within photonic integrated circuits (PICs) or their package and assembly components to guarantee effective fiber-to-chip or chip-to-chip connectivity.
