IRIS project breaks new ground in silicon photonic integration

European project IRIS (www.ict-iris.eu) has concluded with the delivery of a ground-breaking device based on silicon-photonic technology. The demonstrated device is a fully-integrated transponder-aggregator for metro networks, and allows switching and routing 12-channel signals from 4 directions to 8 ports. The ground-breaking aspect of the device is its size: everything is reduced to a 8×8 mm2 silicon photonic chip
