This course provides an overview of the latest status of the integrated photonics eco-system for the three major photonics technologies: InP, silicon photonics and TriPleX (SiN). The overview will include the available design tools today and the importance of considering test and packaging in an early stage. The unique combination of lectures and hands-on training exercises will teach you how to perform circuit simulations, including fabrication tolerances, how to use a design library (PDK) for mask layout and how to set-up your own libraries in a structured way. Synopsys' Photonic Solutions (RSoft OptSim™ Circuit and PhoeniX OptoDesigner tools) will be used for this purpose.
