Phoenix, Sandia to Collaborate on PIC
ENSCHEDE, Netherlands, June 3, 2016 — Micro- and nanotechnology provider Phoenix Software BV and Sandia National Laboratories have partnered to facilitate the design and fabrication of photonic integrated circuits.
The collaboration aims to develop a photonics process design kit for Sandia’s silicon photonics manufacturing process. The combination of Phoenix’s suite of photonic design tools and Sandia’s foundry services enable photonic designers to innovate in the field of integrated photonics.
In July 2015, the U.S. Department of Defense’s Manufacturing Technology Program established the American Institute for Manufacturing (AIM) of Integrated Photonics to develop an end-to-end integrated photonics ecosystems in the U.S., underscoring the importance of photonics in the future of U.S. economy and national security.
Phoenix Software is a provider of products and services for integrated photonics. Sandia National Laboratories is a multiprogram laboratory operated by Sandia Corp. for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration.
