A decade after creating the world’s first graduate-level course for designing and making nanophotonic integrated circuits, UBC Professor Lukas Chrostowski enjoys seeing his students continue to push the limits of innovation in this expanding technology.
CMC Microsystems Response to COVID-19
Lowering Barriers to Technology Adoption:
CMC helps researchers and industry across Canada’s National Design Network® develop innovations in microsystems and nanotechnologies.
An all-silicon modulator developed by Université Laval professors Leslie Rusch (left) and Wei Shi achieved the fastest-ever transmission on silicon photonics. Their low-cost, low-energy component, produced through standard foundry processes, solves a significant challenge in next-generation semiconductor design.
