New investment to boost integrated photonics start-up

TU Eindhoven spinoff MicroAlign is developing a new alignment solution for connecting multiple optical fibres and photonic chips

Researchers amplify interferometric signals on photonic chip

University of Rochester researchers have packaged a way of amplifying interferometric signals using inverse weak value amplification - without increase in extraneous input or 'noise' - on an integrated photonic chip

Testing and alignment seek to scale up manufacture

Integration, automation, collaboration, customisation and designing for testing and manufacturability will help component and system makers lower costs and increase production, finds Andy Extance
