Photonic Integrated Circuit design training

January 17, 2018 - January 19, 2018

After last year‘s successful edition, a new Photonic Integrated Circuit design training will be held again in the facilities of VLC Photonics in Valencia (Spain) from Wednesday 17th to Friday 19th of January 2018, co-located with the 2nd Photonic Integration Week.

This training is oriented to companies or institutions that want to get started in photonic circuit design, or for those that already having a basic knowledge and want to improve their design skills.

Moreover, the EUIMWP (European Network for High Performance Integrated Microwave Photonics) COST Action (CA 16220) will offer a fixed grant (amount still to be confirmed) to trainees coming from COST countries and Near Neighbour Countries. These grants aim to cover travel, accommodation and diet expenses of trainees during the attendance to the PIC design course. Please note that the grants will be given in a first come first served basis, and that the final deadline to register is Friday 12/01/18.

Attendees will also have the chance to fabricate the designs they have done or initiated during the training at an upcoming multi-project wafer run in the silicon nitride platform of the CNM foundry.

The agenda of the training will be as follows:


If you want to join this training, please contact us before Friday 12/01/18 at info@vlcphotonics.com and you will get the registration form and all training details and logistic information.

This training will be the end of an exciting week started on Monday and Tuesday with the 2nd edition of the Photonic Integration Week, PIW2018, that will combine industrial presentations, business to business meetings, scientific and technical speakers and training activities. The event will be held at the Technical University of Valencia (UPV), in Spain.

The PIW2018 will start with two Workshops under the framework of the project H2020 PICs4All (Photonic Integration Circuits Accessible to Everyone) and the Spanish Network of Excellence PIC4TB (Photonic Integration Circuits for Telecommunications and Bio Sciences). Industrial keynote speakers will provide the commercial perspective of use of photonic integration technologies at different positions of the supply chain, from component manufacturers, system integrators and end users of these technologies. Scientific invited speakers will present their latest achievements and prospects of use of these technologies in research and development, and caveats for the design aimed at Bio and Telecom applications will be given in 4 master lessons by the members of the PIC4TB network.

Registration deadline: January 12th
