HELIOS

Photonics Electronics functional Integration on CMOS


Acronym: HELIOS
Project type: European
Period: 01-05-2008 / 30-04-2012
Reference: FP7-ICT-224312
Coordinator: Commisariat à L'Energie Atomique - Laboratoire d'Electronique de Technologie de l'Information (CEA-LETI)
Web: www.helios-project.eu
Research lines involved: Nonlinear Silicon Photonics, Micro/Nanofabrication, Optical modulators


Project description:
The mission of the large scale integrating project HELIOS is to make CMOS photonics accessible to a broad circle of users. During 4 years, the HELIOS consortium will develop innovative means to combine a photonic layer with a CMOS circuit, using microelectronics fabrication processes. HELIOS gathers 19 partners among the major European CMOS Photonics and Electronics players and potential users. It will drive the European RTD in CMOS Photonics and pave the way for industrial development.
