EU FP7 Projects SOFI/NAVOLCHI Special Session on
"CMOS Fabrication-Based Photonic Technologies for Communications"
Cartagena, Spain, June 23-27, 2013
The scope of the SOFI/NAVOLCHI special session is the following:
To solicit invited and contributed presentations on the hot topics of silicon-based photonic technologies. The primary foci will be plasmonic-silicon and organic-silicon based components for communication applications.
Plasmonics is a relatively new science field that bridges the size gap between electronics and photonics and brings out the best of both worlds. Plasmonics is expected to deliver novel high-speed and small footprint VLSI circuits that could be used in communication applications and high performance computing subsystems.
Silicon-organic hybrid technology envisions the creation of new components with functionalities that so far are not available in silicon. Recent experiments have shown that such a technology can boost the signal processing in silicon beyond 100 Gbit/s.
Based on the mature CMOS fabrication, the above technologies will allow for low-cost and high-bandwidth components capable for massive integration. Within the special session, recent research achievements will be reported and the relevant technology approaches that show the greater future potential will be highlighted.
