Different PIC platforms vs. PATTERN’s integrated PIC platform
- LNOI is one of the most promising emerging PIC materials that comprises a unique set of interesting optical properties: a high electro‐optic coefficient, a high intrinsic 2nd‐order nonlinearity, and a large transparency window, which makes it ideal for electronics manipulation of light at many wavelengths (EO modulation).
- InP is an ideal platform for generation and detection of light
- YIG is a known magneto‐optic material
- Integrated together, the result is truly novel, advanced functionalities and possibilities.
- PATTERN develops packaging solutions for such high frequencies, which has been one of the main barriers in this area so far.
