Summary

This course aims at providing engineering and design guidelines for selected Photonic Micro- and Nanosystems. In particular, Optical MEMS and Integrated Photonics are reviewed. Standard fabrication processes and related design approaches are introduced and product aspects are discussed.

Content

Keywords

Optical MEMS, MOEMS, Silicon Photonics, Microspectrometers, Spatial Light Modulators.

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

  • Micro-331 – Technologie des Microstructures I (or equivalent)

Recommended courses

  • Micro-321, 322 – Ingénierie Optique (or equivalent)
  • Micro-330 – Capteurs    
  • Micro-431 – Microstructures Technology II

Important concepts to start the course

  • Microfabrication Techniques
  • Optics Basics

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Explain the working principle of the discussed photonic micro- and nanosystems
  • Analyze a given photonic microsystem with respect to its design constraints
  • Discuss potential fabrication processes for a given photonic microsystem
  • Propose a design for a photonic microsystem
  • Assess / Evaluate design tradeoffs for miniaturized optical systems
  • Propose a design for a silicon photonic integrated circuit

Teaching methods

The lecture will be given ex cathedra. Exercices and design examples will be discussed for selected systems. Short experiments will demonstrate selected particularities of spatial light modulators. A selection of scientific papers will be distributed and discussed.

Expected student activities

Attend lectures, read the course material, participate actively during discussions.

Assessment methods

Oral examination at the end of the course.
