Optical fusion splicing for integrated photonics chips

Juniyali Nauriyal, Photonect Interconnect Solutions


With the increasing need for higher data rates of the order of a few terabytes to zettabytes, data centers and optical transceivers companies are now migrating to integrated photonics to keep up with the data rates. However, packaging of integrated photonic devices to optical fibers remains a slow and expensive process. To keep up with the highly data-driven communication systems and with the advent of co-packaged optics, a low-cost and low-loss packaging technique that can be scaled to high volume manufacturing for photonic integrated circuits is needed. We present a packaging technique that uses fusion splicing to connect optical fibers to integrated photonics chips.
