OFC 2018

Meet LioniX International at the OFC  in San Diego, CA.

To show worldwide what LioniX International is currently working on we’ve planned varied activities during the largest global conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals.

We can be found at the next activities:

  • Short course: Design, Manufacturing, and Packaging of Opto-Electronic Modules

Integrated optical modules combine advanced semiconductor technologies, optical and electronic chips, motherboards, micro-optics and heat-management to meet demanding sub-systems specifications. The assembly, packaging and testing of such modules requires increasingly sophisticated methods to ensure product meets specification. This short course will provide an insight into the packaging and testing specific to such integrated optical modules.

When: Sunday, 11 March
Time: 13:30 – 17:30
Registration: Course SC450 – Click here


  • 5th Workshop on Photonic Integrated Circuits

With an increasing momentum for photonic integration and last year’s PIC workshop attracting over 378 attendees, this year will see the fifth workshop on photonic ICs at OFC. The PIC workshop is unique in the sense that it offers a material-independent one-stop-shop for anyone wanting to get started in photonic integration. The workshop is free of charge, but does require advance registration. Food and drinks will be provided and there is plenty of opportunity to network and interact with PIC service providers.

When: Wednesday, 14 March
Time: 5:45pm – 8:30pm
Where: Room 29ABCD at the San Diego Convention Center


This workshop will examine this opportunity for integrated photonics through plenary and invited talks by leading experts in the field covering different topics. It is targeted at companies and innovators considering or already investing in integrated photonics to meet their future product requirements, and who need to understand key manufacturing challenges and how they can be addressed.

When: Sunday, 11 March
Time: 1:30pm – 5.30pm
Where: San Diego Convention Center


‘Narrow Linewidth Hybrid InP-TriPleX Photonic Integrated Tunable Laser based on Silicon Nitride Micro-ring Resonators’. Co-author with Dublin City University.

When: March 15
Time: 10:30am – 00:30pm
Where: Th2A.14 Joint Poster Session II, Exhibit Hall B

Tu2I.7 Underwater Free Space Optics Systems—Continued: ‘Free Space Intra-datacenter Interconnection Utilizing 2D Optical Beam Steering‘. Co-author with Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya, Spain.

When: Tuesday March 13
Time: 3:45pm
Where: Tu2I.7 Underwater Free Space Optics Systems—Continued, Room 8
