Winner of the EIC Accelerator program

Alcyon Photonics will develop a commercial photonics circuit portfolio and a digital platform that will facilitate access to design new photonic integrated circuits (PICs)

 

Photonics has brought well-established processing technology from the microelectronics industry to the development of high-density Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs).

PICs employ a range of components in waveguide form to emit, focus, split, isolate, polarize, couple, modulate, and detect light. This has enabled complex optical signal processing in compact chips and fabrication in standard foundries of microelectronic devices at low costs. Although significant progress has been made in developing PICs for communication applications, key functional building blocks (BBs) do not deliver the performance required for many PIC applications regarding bandwidth, energy consumption, and price.

Alcyon Photonics will develop a commercial photonics circuit portfolio and a digital platform that will facilitate access to design new photonic integrated circuits (PICs). The platform will be empowered by Alcyon’s proprietary photonics circuit design process based on sub-wavelength gratings (SWG), which are photonics metamaterials with unique characteristics. The impact of the project on the photonics value chain will be huge. Thanks to the Alcyon platform, new and more efficient photonics-based applications will be commercialized.

This project will be able to be carried out thanks to the funds received after winning the EIC Accelerator program, 1.9 million euros in subsidy, plus the investment in exchange for shares. Aristos Innovation Funding helped Alcyon Photonics prepare the proposal to access the interview phase, as well as practice the interview successfully.
