CEA-Leti's silicon photonics platform allows miniaturization, power efficiency, cost reduction and scalability of photonic integrated circuits (PIC). Pioneering silicon photonics for 20 years, CEA-Leti has designed a technology toolbox featuring state-of-the-art performance for communication, computing and sensing.
CEA-Leti, Université Grenoble Alpes, CNRS Institut Néel, and CEA-Irig shared a new three-step characterization chain for linear silicon quantum dot (QD) arrays fabricated on fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FDSOI) material.
Scintil Photonics creates fully integrated silicon-based photonic circuits. In short, these circuits contain all the components that are required for optical communications, from lasers to modulators and photodetectors. The startup’s integrated circuits have two key advantages: they are quicker and less costly than existing solutions.
The 2021 CEA-Leti Scientific Report highlights the major inroads it has made over the past year. Industrial partners will find within the latest R&D available to drive their business value up.
CEA-Leti, a CEA technology research institute, received the award in the Impact Delivered category for the development of a patented Smart Cut™ process of substrate fabrication in collaboration with SOITEC, which results in a transfer of a thin active layer of silicon from one substrate to another, which can be used in all electronic devices.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
