The Pilot Lines in photonics, MIRPHAB, PIXAPP and PIX4life, offer to the SMEs a service from prototyping to medium volume production to develop the new generation of miniaturised devices based on Photonic Integrated Circuits technologies. In this webinar, high-level representatives of the Pilot Lines will give an overview of the European scene regarding technologies, offers and capabilities for the manufacturing of new photonics-based products that will impact in market sectors such as medical, environmental and industrial.
The webinar is organised by
PIXAPP, the world’s first open-access Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) Assembly and Packaging Pilot Line. A highly-interdisciplinary team of Europe’s leading industrial & research organisations, that provides users with single-point access to PIC assembly and packaging. PIXAPP bridges the ‘valley of death’ often associated with moving from prototyping to low-volume fabrication, by giving companies an easy-access route to transferring R&D results to the market.

MIRPHAB (Mid InfraRed Photonics devices fabrication for chemical sensing and spectroscopic applications) is an all-services Pilot Line for the fabrication of Mid-Infrared sensors, a single access point to the best technology, facilities and expertise provided by a consortium of leading companies in the field of photonics. MIRPHAB will be an open technology platform with special focus on SMEs, providing services for device design and fabrication from chip processing on wafer level to packaging and testing as well as training services to customers. MIRPHAB reduces the barriers to introduce your chemical sensor into the market by granting your proposal up 230k€. For more information please visit www.mirphab.eu.

PIX4life offers early open-access to high performance photonic integrated circuit platforms for visible light applications. Specially targeting life-science applications, BioPIX and TripleX platforms aim at bridging the technological research advances towards industrial developments and products. Early open-access is now offered worldwide for prototyping through multiproject wafer runs. In this manner, the PIX4life consortium offers, through its members, all the services required to bring a concept to a product. This is being achieved by an improved access to technology and efficient development of the end to end supply chain. For more information please visit www.pix4life.eu
