Bowers – Intel’s New Integrated Photonics Research Ctr

The multiple university center to pave the way for the next decade of compute interconnect. ECE Prof. John Bowers will investigate issues w/ integrating InAs quantum dot lasers w/ conventional silicon photonics

Intel Labs recently opened the Intel® Research Center for Integrated Photonics for Data Center Interconnects. The center’s mission is to accelerate optical input/output (I/O) technology innovation in performance scaling and integration with a specific focus on photonics technology and devices, CMOS circuits and link architecture, and package integration and fiber coupling.

The goal of Bowers' project "Heterogeneously Integrated Quantum Dot Lasers on Silicon" is to characterize expected performance and design parameters of single frequency and multiwavelength sources.
