High Performance 3D Photonic Integration for Space Applications, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

In this work, Freedom Photonics will team with University of California, Santa Barbara to develop a hybrid integration platform that integrates yielded, best-of-breed active optical components with low-cost, high functionality Silicon Photonics components in a manner that is compatible with foundry fabrication. This will be performed in a highly manufacturable manner, using passively aligned pick-and-place technology to place the semiconductor components on the interposer substrate to form a system in package-type of integration platform for space photonic applications. The approach is based on a novel 3D hybrid integration approach developed at UCSB that is scalable, low cost, reliable, and that demonstrates superior thermal performance. More »
