Thematic network of excellence on “Photonic Integrated Circuits for Telecom & Bio Sciences (PIC4TB)

Finantial support: Red de Excelencia. Dirección General de Investigación Científica y Técnica Subdirección General de Proyectos de Investigación (MINECO)
Participating Institutions: CIN2-CSIC. Principal Investigator: Laura M Lechuga
From: 01/12/2015  a  01/12/2018


Nine research groups have teamed up in the PIC4TB network, aiming at integrating the research efforts in Spain on photonic integrated circuits design for telecom and bio applications, broken into four objectives: 1) to educate the next generation of photonic integrated circuit designers, 2) to integrate the research groups and their technical activities, 3) to create a common pool of resources and 4) to raise awareness on these technologies and their applications.
