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

Thinner crystals, smaller chips

Researchers have devised a new way of generating thin 3D photonic crystals that show promise for miniaturising photonic integrated circuits

PIC method set to speed-up coherent lidar

In a study published in Nature, researchers at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) demonstrate a new way to speed up a type of lidar engine by using photonic circuits
