Is a high-performance datacenter platform using InP a silicon photonics play? This issue will be addressed. Designing and packaging InP-based PICs (Photonic Integrated Circuits) & OEICs (Optoelectronic Integrated Circuits) will be discussed. A review of packaging technologies for datacom products will be made. Particular attention will be a focus on a highly reliable and robust platform with Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) that have included lasers, modulators, detectors, waveguides, Mux/Demux, and large spot converters by OneChip Photonics. Current products are focused on both client-side and line-side applications in data and tele-communications networks. Initial performance levels indicate suitability for 100Gb/s datacenter and 50Gb/s metro opportunities using OneChip's InP-based OEIC platform.
- Speaker Biography:
Michael Libby's career has spanned all aspects of the optoelectronics business ranging from research and development, operations, manufacturing, and finance, to sales, marketing, and investing. With more than 180 USPTO utility patents issued in the field of optoelectronics, he has been cited by the USPTO to be in the most prolific 75 inventors in the country from 1988-1997.
In 2013, Lebby joined One Chip Photonics, a privately held company headquartered in Ottawa, Canada as CEO. One Chip Photonics is a leading provider of low-cost, small-footprint, high-performance Indium Phosphide (InP)-based Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) and PIC-based modules for the Data Center Interconnect (DCI) and Passive Optical Network (PON) markets.
Prior to this he was with Translucent and headed up the company's R&D efforts to commercialize rare earth oxides for epitaxial based materials that have been developed over the past decade. Crystalline based semiconductor rare-earth oxides exhibit a number of attractive properties for advanced substrate and device solutions that include GaN-on-Si for solid state lighting and power electronics, Ge-on-Si for CPV solar, and GaAs based photonics and electronics.
He led the drive for green photonics while heading OIDA in the mid-2000s. The adoption and acceleration of this new discipline has become a significant focus for the photonics industry.
He is a Fellow of the IEEE and OSA, and has testified on behalf of the optoelectronics industry while working for OIDA on Capitol Hill. He also has given numerous talks, speeches, panel discussions, and interviews on the subject of optoelectronics internationally over the past two decades. Lebby has 2 doctorates and a MBA from the University of Bradford in the UK.
