The website of the PATTERN project is currently under construction
PATTERN – Next-generation ultra-high-speed microwave Photonic integrATed circuiTs using advancEd hybRid iNtegration – is funded by the EU Research and Innovation Programme Horizon Europe under Grant Agreement No 101070506.
PATTERN aims to develop the world’s first PDK and ADK for microwave photonics at ultra‐high frequencies above 100 GHz. It will introduce novel functionalities into PICs that currently do not exist, such as magneto‐optic isolators and acousto-optic modulators (AOMs).
The PATTERN project will develop the world’s first Process and Assembly Design Kits (PDK & ADK) for microwave photonics at ultra-high frequencies (100+ GHz) as well as new methods of heterogeneous integration of III-V gain materials (e.g. InP) and BiCMOS drivers with electro-optic and nonlinear platforms such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI). The project envisions to:
