STOIC PIES PSIAC

Background:

The Photonics Communications Systems group at the Engineering Department in University of Cambridge has been involved in several research projects (STOIC/PIES/PSIAC) since 2005 on the development of board-level optical interconnects based on the use of multimode polymer waveguides. These projects, carried out in collaboration with Dow Corning Corporation and have yielded in interesting scientific results and led to important publications at major conferences and journals in the field. The main research activities include the following topics:

Design, fabrication and characterisation of multimode polymer waveguides and waveguide components for high-speed board-level optical interconnects

Development of interconnection architectures for card-to-card and chip-to-chip optical communications

The development of manufacturing and assembly methods for the production of low-cost optoelectronic (OE) PCBs and the cost-effective integration of optical and electrical component on conventional PCBs

The integration of different materials with polymer waveguides (liquid crystals, fluorescent dyes, active glasses)
