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.
PATTERN is a 48-month collaborative research and innovation action (RIA) funded by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe programme (grant N° 101070506).
PATTERN will develop the world’s first Process and Assembly Design Kits (PDK & ADK) for microwave photonics at ultra‐high frequencies (100+ GHz) as well as new methods or heterogeneous integration of III-V gain materials (e.g. InP) and BiCMOS drivers with electro-optic and nonlinear platforms such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI). It also envisions new and advanced PIC building blocks, such as acousto-optic modulators (AOMs) and magneto-optic insulators.

The PATTERN team is excited to dive into this fantastic project and develop innovative solutions in the field of integrated photonics circuits!
Stay tuned and read more soon!
