IEEE EPS Switzerland- Workshop: Precision Assembly in Photonics Packaging


During this workshop, which will be conducted as a joint event between IEEE EPS chapter Switzerland, Swiss photonics and CSEM, we will will take a deeper look at precision assembly solutions from the industry and from development partners. Whether it be an active or a passive assembly of photonics components, it requires in many cases precision alignment of e.g. lasers, waveguides, detectors and lenses.

Worldwide initiatives are underway to standardize assembly and integrate functionalities into photonic circuits. However, given the large diversity of materials used in photonics applications, in still many cases packaging solutions often necessitate custom hybrid packages. We are looking forward to bring topics to the discussion, like about common assembly strategies and e.g. trade-offs between active vs. passive alignment, hermetic vs. non-hermetic, etc. Participants will have the opportunity to submit requests and specific questions before the workshop.
