About This Webinar
Packaging remains one of the most challenging aspects of PIC technology. Specifically, the integration of light sources and optical fibers into a package requires high-precision alignment and attachment that is costly and suffers from poor yields. Preble provides an overview of packaging photonic integrated circuit (PICs).

He details optical input and output in detail (including active and passive fiber attachment, and pluggable and flexible solutions) and a variety of solutions for realizing scalable manufacturing of PIC packages. In addition to achieving robust coupling of light, the PIC package must also realize electrical density and thermal management and meet reliability requirements.
