Lunch Chat: Swiss PIC initiative

Tue, 19.10.2021, members only


Dear Member of the Swissphotonics family

We are pleased to announce and invite you to our weekly online zoom events.

Discussion on Swiss PIC initiative

Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) have demonstrated their disruptive potential in miniaturizing classical optical systems in size, weight, power and cost with increased performance at the same time.

Switzerland has some leading activities in this exiting field and we would like to discuss in the lunch chat with the PIC players their need and interest to create a joint initiative, Swiss PIC with the support of Swissphotonics to strengthen the national position.
