Publication in Light: Science & Applications: 3D nano-lithography greatly simplifies photonic multi-chip assembly

May 2020: IPQ researchers have demonstrated chiplet-based optical communication engines that exploit 3D-printed freeform waveguides as chip-chip connections. These so-called photonic wire bonds are fabricated in-situ onto the chips by advanced 3D lithography and can efficiently connect a wide variety of waveguide types on different integration platforms. By greatly simplifying the assembly of advanced photonic multi-chip modules, the technique has the potential to transform a variety of applications, ranging from high-speed communications and ultra-fast signal processing to optical sensing and quantum information processing.

Success Stories: IPQ research featured by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ)

May 2020: 16 May 2020 is the 60th Anniversary of the invention of the laser by Maiman. On this occasion, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) has published a movie on important innovations related to laser light. Following the award of the Berthold Leibinger Innovationspreis to IPQ researchers in 2018, this movie also features our research on 3D-printed waveguides as one of such applications.
