Quilt Packaging: Optical Applications

Student: Linda Allee, 2015-2016

Sponsor: Indiana Integrated Circuits, LLC, South Bend, IN

This project aims to explore different applications of Quilt Packaging into optical devices. Some examples of areas to be explored would be LIDAR, more robust wavelength tuning, and more compact, lower loss waveguide coupling. Looking at the array of fields where QP can be applied, this project will seek to find a few of the highest yield markets to pursue and how it can be integrated. Upon selecting a market, companies will be examined to find the most likely candidate with the highest yield for approaching and working out potential licensing agreements. Ultimately, this project will seek to examine and expand the current markets IIC currently participates in to incorporate more optical applications of QP.
