Brief description Bandwidth and energy demands of telecommunications networks are rapidly reaching a crisis point technologically, economically and from a sustainability viewpoint. At the same time, on-chip interconnects for silicon integrated circuits are also reaching a bottleneck. This project aims to combine the expertise of eight leading international groups to pioneer nonlinear photonic integrated circuits compatible with silicon technology (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor technology, or CMOS) to achieve new capabilities on a chip for signal generation, processing and measurement for telecommunications, computers, and fundamental science. These platforms are expected to allow the integration of electronics with photonics and to be faster, cheaper, smaller, and more energy efficient than current technology.
