The Summer School is focused on integrated photonics and optical interconnect technologies and architectures, across different hierarchy levels, in data centres and high-performance computing systems. Heck have an overview of CST Global's 100mm, InP wafer platform, which is used to design and fabricate Distributed Feedback (DFB) lasers in high volumes for data centre, PON and 4G/5G applications.
Next generation DFB lasers are currently being developed at CST Global as part of the Innovate UK, government-funded, DilaN and Super8 research projects.
The summer school was chaired by Nikos Pleros, Liam O'Faolain and Amalia Miliou. The audience comprised postgraduate students, post-doctorate students and academics from across Europe; engineers from NTT in Japan; and engineers developing optical systems and subsystem in commercial organisations.
