ADVANCED EDUCATION COURSES
Course Cycle on Integrated Photonics - II edition
Target candidates are coming from the academia and the industry with a master of science in the area of Electronic or Telecommunication Engineering or Physics, or professionals with adequate background who want to pursue intensive specialization courses with practical sessions in the complete line of design, fabrication, packaging and characterization.
The Integrated Photonic Technologies Center INPHOTEC, part of the TeCIP Institute of Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, Pisa, Italy, in collaboration with CNIT (National Inter-University Consortium for Telecommunications), offers a comprehensive training programme on photonic integrated circuits design and fabrication, and on photonic/electronic packaging and characterization.
INPHOTEC makes available during the courses to the enrolled trainees its 700 sqm highly professional fabrication facility and technology platforms for clean room live sessions.
The Courses will take place at TeCIP Institute, Via Moruzzi 1, Pisa, according to the following schedule:
1) Photonic Integrated Circuit Design and Fabrication (PIC D&F) - 8 – 12 May 2017
2) Photonic and Electronic Integrated Circuit Packaging (PEIC Pack) - 15 – 17 May 2017
3) Characterization and Testing (C&T) session - 4 – 7 December 2017.
Registration fees are as follows:
- €500,00 for attendance at the entire cycle of courses PIC D&F + PEIC Pack + C&T session;
- €350,00 for attendance at the PIC D&F course (including the chip fabrication expenses) and C&T session or shipment of the circuit to the student;
- €150,00 for attendance at the PEIC Pack course.
Students enrolled in any PhD program of the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies are subject to a reduced flat fee of €200,00 for attendance at the entire cycle of courses PIC D&F + PEIC Pack + C&T session.
The main training objective of the courses is to strengthen skills in the design and fabrication of photonic integrated circuits, in photonic/electronic packaging and in characterization processes for staff from both the academic world and industry. The course offers the opportunity to interact with a unique infrastructure on the national scene – the Clean Room - located at the TeCIP Institute, which operates in a highly-strategic environment at the international level.
The courses includes activities in both the classroom and laboratory, which are intensive pace and designed in order to teach concepts that will lead to the undertaking of independent activities in public or private institutions with integrated circuits design and manufacturing facilities.
