EU cross-fertilisation workshop on “Heterogeneous Integration in Integrated Photonics”

Workshop on “Heterogeneous Integration in Integrated Photonics” in Paris, France, on 23-24 April 2024, hosted by THALES Research and Technology

ELENA Fourth Steering Committee Meeting

The ELENA consortium gets together for their fourth Steering Committee meeting on 9th – 10th January 2024 at CEA-Leti premises in Grenoble, France.

ELENA Third Steering Committee Meeting

The third Steering Committee of ELENA took place on 22/23 of June, and was hosted Rosenberg in Fridolfing, Germany.

ELENA’s PDK Featured at CLEO2023

For the first time, ELENA’s LNOI building blocks were featured in VPI’s Design and Simulation Training for Photonic Integrated Circuits at CLEO2023.

MPW RUNs: Updated Schedule

ELENA’s pre-commercial Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) RUNs enable researchers to access the novel LNOI PIC platform at affordable cost, lowering the barrier for the industry to adopt the new technology.

ELENA Consortium Meeting – Two Intense Days in Switzerland

True, we didn’t stick 100% to the schedule of our agenda, but that’s because it’s simply best to discuss in person. And when our consortium meets, we seize the opportunity to talk to each other 200%!

Live from the Swiss Mountains: ELENA Workshop

Workshop time! The modelling of photonic components and circuits is crucial for reliably functioning PICs. VPIphotonics has taken the first steps to integrate the world’s first lithium niobate-on-insulator (LNOI) PIC process design kit (PDK) into their photonic design suite. This is one of the main goals of the ELENA project.

PATTERN Project Launched

ELENA is thrilled about the launch of its sister project PATTERN! The Horizon Europe project PATTERN officially started on 1 September and had its kick-off meeting on September 15 and 16 at CSEM in Neuchâtel / Switzerland.

Thales and Rosenberger Visit CSEM

ELENA nurtures synergy and cross-fertilisation within the partnership, which are crucial to establish solid development pillars early on in the project.

Workshop on LNOI Characterisation

One of the best things about collaborative projects are workshops, because expert-level exchange is always highly inspiring. After the successful RF workshop in June, another one took place this month: Elena partner CEA-Leti hosted a workshop on LNOI characterisation.

ELENA General Assembly

From 29 June to 1 July, sunny Paris hosted H2020-ELENA’s first face-to-face meeting! The event welded our team even closer together and concluded with a clear roadmap setting out the next steps.

Workshop at VPI Photonics

To kick off work on the LNOI photonic building blocks H2020-ELENA aims to create, H2020-ELENA partner VPIphotonics recently organised a series of comprehensive training courses.

ELENA at PIC International Conference

The coordinator of the ELENA project, Dr Amir Ghadimi, will be giving a talk at the upcoming PIC International Conference, throwing light on the emerging LNOI PIC platform and its unique features.

Launch of H2020 Project ELENA

Here we go – the ELENA project officially kicked off on 10 and 11 February!
