Roadmap Structure & Overview

A collaborative effort between MIT's Microphotonics Center and the Netherlands-based PhotonDelta, IPSR-I 2020 creates synergy by relying on both institutions to coordinate technological vision, development, and implementation of effective manufacturing strategies for emerging technologies. IPSR-I integrates and expands upon the sucessful roadmapping efforts of both partners to address systems and manufacturing needs in integrated photonics. Developed by seventeen working groups, each focused on a particular field, module or technology, the IPSR-I 2020 Roadmap highlights the performance requirements necessary for these applications and the ecosystems in which they can be created.  Modules and systems are the interface between the application manufacturers and the integrated circuit industry. It's at this interface the functional performance parameters are converted to component requirements and vice versa.
