The entire L-up team is proud to be part of the PATTERN project, which had its kick-off meeting on 15 and 16 September.
PATTERN will develop the world’s first Process and Assembly Design Kits (PDK & ADK) for microwave photonics at ultra-high frequencies (100+ GHz) as well as new methods of heterogeneous integration of III-V gain materials (e.g. InP) and BiCMOS drivers with electro-optic and nonlinear platforms such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI).
PATTERN officially started on 1 September 2022 and has a runtime of 48 months.
The PATTERN consortium unites the expertise of ten renowned research entities, SMEs, and industrial players in the photonics sector to achieve ambitious objectives. L-up supports the consortium in terms of project management, communication / dissemination and exploitation.
The project is funded by the European Union under the Horizon Europe programme (grant number 101070506).
