Abstract:

Wafer-scale 3D integration is a very active trend in the electronics industry.  3D NAND memory has already been ubiquitous for more than a decade, and recent efforts extended to integrating processor and memory planes in 3D to overcome the von Neumann bottleneck.  On the other hand, photonic integration efforts so far mostly stayed with 2D (2D PIC) because it already offered high channel capacity and high bandwidth thanks to wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) while avoiding similar constraints due to skin effects and impedance.   3D photonic integration has recently emerged as very important steps for bringing new functionalities and high degrees of integration to microsystems.  3D Photonic Integrated Circuits (3D PICs) overcome many limitations of 2D PICs where all photonic components must reside on the same plane.  As we will discuss in this talk, 3D PICs allow multiple functionalities on multiple planes of 2D PICs to achieve combined functions on a limited footprint.  3D PIC based on silicon photonics is extremely important because it combines low-energy operation, high-density functionalities, and high-yield manufacturing on a CMOS platform already developed for 3D electronic integration.

In this talk, we will discusses design, fabrication, and characterization results of new high-density 3D photonic integrated circuit being developed for LIDAR imaging systems.In particular, we will detail the design and fabrication of the vertical U-shaped couplers that enables 3D light transport within 1 mm3 volume with subwavelength element pitch and a proof-of-concept illustration of silicon photonic unit cell optical phased array. Our latest efforts on a wafer-scale interposer as an optical backplane and its coupling to silicon photonic unit cell will also be introduced.
