Paper Abstract

Generic packaging concepts for silicon photonics have been developed in the frame of EU-funded Network of Excellence ePIXnet (FP6). Three approaches for Silicon photonic packaging will be presented within this paper. Two concepts provide solutions for fiber array coupling to high-index contrast photonic wire waveguide gratings. Third concept is the integration of inverted taper-based fiber coupling structure with silicon etched V-grooves. Using standardized SOI chip designs and commercial available assembly parts, the packaging concepts allow for small footprint or flexible use in an R&D environment. The work presented here has resulted from cooperation within the European Network of Excellence ePIXnet.
