Abstract: The recent advancements in photonic integration for applications related to short-reach data communications has given a new life to the development of optical interconnects and networks where optical systems can now be implemented onto a single die. As seen with electronics where integration has an impact on the advancement of data processing capabilities, photonic integration brings value and has become a strong asset for effective deployment of optical switching networks as well as an enabler in innovative system architectures. The intention of this seminar is to present recent experimental demonstrations illustrating the impact of photonic integration on the design and implementation of optical interconnection networks towards modern computing platforms. Specifically, the seminar will discuss devices and subsystems related to switches and transceivers, as well as research development related to inter-chip and intra-chip interconnects. The seminar will also present innovating prototyping enabled by the co-design and co-packaging of opto-electronics with electronic integrated circuits and controllers. Finally, innovative interconnects exploiting plasmonic modes will be presented as well as new on-chip approaches enabled by mode division multiplexing.
