Lunch Chat: Low loss integrated photonics

Tue, 11.10.2022, online


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

Low loss integrated photonics: present offering and future developments

We will present the LIGENTEC offering for low loss silicon nitride PICs for application such as quantum, LiDAR and sensing. Options of active integration, such as LNOI are discussed. The offering includes fast R&D cycles in low volume PIC fabrication though multi-project wafer runs to high volume PIC fabrication in an automotive qualified CMOS line.


Dr. Michael Geiselmann, President Ligentec SA
Michael Geiselmann studied physics and engineering at University Stuttgart and Ecole Centrale Paris. After his PhD at ICFO in Barcelona in 2014 he joined the laboratory of Prof. Kippenberg at EPFL in Lausanne, where he advanced frequency comb generation on integrated silicon nitride chips towards applications and was involved in several international research projects. In 2016, he co-founded LIGENTEC and brought the company to the international stage of photonic integration.
