PHOTONICS PRODUCTS & SERVICES
Training - And More
Training - CNDN nurtures talent that is helping industry in Canada lead the way in developing this important technology - training includes:
- Passive Silicon Photonics Fabrication | Active Silicon Photonics Fabrication | CMOS-Silicon Photonics Design | System Integration and Packaging
- For details visit: Training Courses and Tutorials.
- CMC, in partnership with UBC/Si-EPIC (Silicon Electronic-Photonic Integrated Circuits), has provided opportunities for training industry and academics in the design, fabrication and test of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) targeting IME's silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology and for opto-electronics integration targeting IBM 0.13 um CMOS technology. More than 400 students have been trained and had their designs fabricated via this globally recognized program.

Canada's National Design Network - Photonics Success Stories
There is a vibrant photonics ecosystem in Canada. The transformation in products and services made possible by putting light to work increasingly has a made-in-Canada label. We’re pleased to work with Canadian innovators who contribute significantly to global advances in this field. Our post-secondary institutions are exemplary in engaging their students to become the next generation of photonics innovators.
