ECIO2018: programme and registration deadline

The European Conference on Integrated Optics will celebrate its 20th anniversary in Valencia from the 30th May to the 1st June 2018. The conference focuses on leading edge research on integrated optics, optoelectronics and nanophotonics and gathers experts from academia and industry. The application scope is broad and it ranges from tele/datacom communications, optical interconnects, and (bio) optical sensing applications to more disruptive areas as quantum computing and mid-IR photonics. The industrial exhibitors will showcase their latest products and services, and will be sponsoring young researchers at an early stage of their careers, through best paper and poster awards...Continue reading

We kindly invite you to have a look at the preliminary conference programme.

Registration is opened until 21st May 2018.

Advances in integrated Photonics

Photonic Integration in the Palm of Your Hand

In the following video, Dr. Pascual Muñoz from Universidad Politécnica de Valencia presents at OFC2017 the technical roadblocks, challenges and evolution of Generic Technologies and Multi-project Wafer Runs for the Integration of Photonic Circuits.

1st Photonic Integration Week (Valencia)

The 1st Photonic Integration Week took place in Valencia (Spain) at the Universitat Politècnica de València from Monday January 16th to Friday January 20th, 2017. It combined industrial presentations, business to business meetings, scientific and technical speakers and training activities.

The event started with two Workshops under the framework of the project H2020 PICs4All (Photonic Integration Circuits Accessible to Everyone) and the Spanish Network of Excellence PIC4TB (Photonic Integration Circuits for Telecommunications and Bio Sciences).

Industrial keynote speakers provided the commercial perspective of use of photonic integration technologies at different positions of the supply chain, from component manufacturers and system integrators to end users of these technologies. Scientific invited speakers presented their latest achievements and prospects of use of the technology in research and development. Once the industry speakers presented their work, the members of the PIC4TB network imparted 4 master lessons on practical design considerations for the development of Photonic Integrated Circuits for Bio and Telecom applications.

The Workshop was followed by a 2.5 days training on the Design of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) given by the design company VLC Photonics.

The Southern European Cluster in Photonics and Optics (SECPhO) organized business to business meetings facilitating the cooperation between companies and researchers. SECPhO also organized an activity where attendees located their logo in a map of coordinates pointing their activity on the value chain on several application fields.


The most of the invited speakers participating in the event belong to the industry sector (53%), followed by the academy (37%) and clusters (10%) as shown in the following graph which also shows the work activities and the application fields from the speakers.
