Within the frame of HELIOS, the University of Trento (Nanoscience Laboratory) demonstrated a bidirectional optical link between Si-nc based light-emitting diodes
The results have been published by A. Marconi et al. “ High power efficiency in Si-nc/SiO2 multilayer light emitting devices by bipolar direct tunneling” Applied Physics Letters 94, 221110 (2009) and will be presented at ECIO conference, 7-9 April 2010, Cambridge, UK
HELIOS achievements in first year
Within the frame of HELIOS, the University of Paris-Sud (UPS-IEF) demonstrated a 40 GBit/s germanium photodetector integrated in silicon-on-insulator waveguide
The results have been published by L. Vivien et al. Optics Express 17 (8), 6252-6257 (2009) and at Group IV Photonics, San Francisco, USA, 9-11 September 2009
Within the frame of HELIOS, IMEC demonstrated a High-efficiency Silicon-On-Insulator Fiber-to-Chip Grating Couplers Using a Silicon Overlay.
The results have been published as post-deadline paper at Group IV Photonics, San Francisco, USA, 9-11 September 2009
The first HELIOS Winter School was organized in Trento with 50 participants and 20 speakers
Grenoble, France: 1 September 2008.
The European Commission (EC) has launched in May 2008 a new CMOS Photonics project within the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) theme of the 7th Framework Programme (FP7). The project HELIOS (pHotonics ELectronics functional Integration on CMOS) gathers 19 European partners and aims at combining a photonic layer with a CMOS circuit by different innovative means. This 4-year project is coordinated by CEA-LETI and has been awarded a grant valued at 8.5 Million Euros [website www.helios-project.eu]
