Design and fabrication of integrated tunable lasers on InP platform for sensing applications

Dr. Stefano Tondini

Eindhoven University of Technology - Netherlands


The talk gives an overview of the mature InP generic platform and the novel InP membrane on silicon (IMOS) platform. After introducing the design workflow established at the Photonic Integration group of TU/e, a few integrated tunable laser schemes are discussed, together with the issues that are being faced for an optimal driving. Some current application opportunities, such as gas sensing, LIDAR, OCT, and an outlook at the Netherlands’ ecosystem for Photonic Innovation close the talk.
