Videos from Silicon Photonics Forum 2011


Silicon Photonics Forum 2011

Monday 5 December 2011

Imec, Kapeldreef 75, Leuven, Belgium

The Silicon Photonics Forum 2011 gave opportunity to industry and academic researchers and research managers to learn about prototyping silicon photonic ICs. ePIXfab is the European R&D foundry initiative for silicon photonic ICs and offers cost-effective prototyping for R&D.

The Silicon Photonics Forum 2011 was attended by over 50 participants and 28 Live streaming audiences from around the world. The food chain from design to prototyping and packaging was discussed by experts, as well as the future needs. For newcomers to the field, a silicon photonics tutorial was organized 9AM-10AM CET. The videos from the Forum can be viewed by clicking on the links provided in the program below.
