ERC: PhotonicSWARM

Full Name:Photonic Integrated Circuits using Scattered Waveguide elements in an Adaptive, Recon gurable Mesh.

Duration: 1/4/2017-31/3/2022


  • Scale Silicon Photonic Circuits to tens of thousands of components that can be tuned or configured to a specific application
  • Research new photonic circuit topologies where light is distributed over multiple pathways.
  • Develop generic reconfigurable circuits (programmable photonics) that can perform different functions.
  • Implement control algorithms based on natural processes (e.g. swarms) that can scale with larger photonic circuits.
