Swissphotonics PIC Convention

Fri, 21.06.2024, Polariton Technologies AG, Adliswil

Guiding Light, Sharing Knowledge

Join us for an interactive workshop where the guiding of light meets the brilliance of shared insights. Dive into the world of Photonics Integrated Circuits (PICs), whether you're a newcomer eager to understand the basics or an expert seeking to navigate the path to mainstream success.

For Non-Experts
  • What defines PICs and how do they shape our technology landscape? 
  • What are real-world applications where PICs are currently being used or have the potential to make a significant impact on everyday technology? 
  • Can PICs solve your challenges? What tasks can PICs handle, and which ones are beyond their capabilities?

For Experts
  • How can we cross the chasm from early adoption to mainstream market success?
  • What specific fabrication processes are at the forefront of PIC development? What development is being conducted to enhance scalability and mass production?
  • What are potentially impactful next-generation trends and standards and how can we respond?

Let us bridge gaps and cultivate collaboration. Register now for this exceptional event!
