RIE News featured research by Associate Prof Dawn Tan on a technology she developed that allows photonic integrated circuits to unlock their potential as high-resolution 3D photonic structures in ultra-high speed communications.
SUTD researchers have developed a technology allowing photonic integrated circuits (PICs) to unlock their potential as high-resolution 3D photonic structures in ultra-high speed communications. Their technology – high-resolution 3D waveguides that transcend the restrictions of light confinement in a single plane – could be useful in further advancements in the photonics field, including imaging techniques and spectroscopic systems. Alongside this, the researchers also demonstrated very low loss 3D waveguide couplers, which unlike current industry standards, do not require post-processing or post-fabrication packaging.
