PHIX launches silicon nitride spot size converters
30th March 2022
PHIX Photonics Assembly introduces silicon nitride spot size converters (SiN SSCs) for efficiently coupling light between optical fiber arrays and photonic integrated circuits (PICs). These chips with lithographically defined waveguides adapt the mode field of the light so that insertion losses are minimized. These new SiN SSCs complement PHIX’s existing offering of ion exchanged glass (IONext) spot size converters and lensed fiber arrays. They are a powerful building block for the manufacturing of optoelectronic modules based on PICs in scalable production volumes.
