Fraunhofer HHI's hybrid integration platform PolyBoard combines polymer passive waveguides with InP and other materials. We present new functionalities integrated in PolyBoard: Isolation: With a microoptical bench integrated into polymer isolators can be built. Quantum and sensing: By integrating nonlinear materials into the microoptical bench, 2nd (775 nm), 3rd (515 nm), and 4th (387 nm) harmonic generation could be observed 3D: First results for a 2x4 phased array have been achieved Flip-chip laser active alignment: We have developed an active alignment process, which also works for flip-chip lasers which are impossible to electrically contact during the alignment process. First automation results show the potential for cost effective volume scaling.
