NSF encourages integrated photonics research using AIM Photonics capabilities
The National Science Foundation encourages innovative exploratory and translational research by academic faculty and small businesses in all aspects of integrated photonics that utilize the current silicon photonics capabilities resident in AIM Photonics.
See NSF Dear Colleague Letter: Research on Integrated Photonics Utilizing AIM Photonics Capabiilities (NSF 17-073) for an introduction to AIM Photonics, project preparation instructions, proposal submission guidelines and contacts.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2017, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
