AIM Photonics Summer Academy Will Immerse Students in Integrated Photonics

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
AIM Photonics is getting ready for its 2019 Summer Academy, a week of intensive short courses on integrated photonics. The academy will take place July 22-26, 2019, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, Mass. The weeklong intensive for students, engineers, executives, and educators in the electronic and photonic industries will be taught by instructors from MIT, Dartmouth College, University of Delaware, University of Rochester, and Rochester Institute of Technology. Topics covered will include materials, devices, EPDA software training and integrated photonic circuit design, chip fabrication, packaging, testing, and system applications.

Summer Academy attendees can choose from one of two Education Tracks:

Track One, PIC Fundamentals, will offer short courses on photonic integrated circuit systems-level drivers, materials and devices, Process Design Kit, chip fabrication and manufacturing, process variation, integrated photonics area applications, chip packaging, and optical/electrical test characterization.

Track Two, Applied PIC Design, will offer training workshops in photonic integrated circuit design with AIM-compatible automated software, integrated photonics area applications, chip packaging, and test characterization.

Attendees registered in either Education Track will also be enrolled to participate in a weeklong Design Project to evaluate and propose a conceptual design of an Application-Specific PIC in datacom, RF signal processing, sensing, or lidar imaging.

Registration for the summer academy is now open. Visit this link to register for the AIM Photonics Summer Academy 2019.
