NSF encourages exploratory and translational research on integrated photonics using AIM Photonics capabilities
February 14, 2023
NSF continues to encourage submissions by academic researchers and small businesses to explore innovative exploratory and translational research in all aspects of integrated photonics that utilize the current silicon and silicon nitride photonics capabilities resident in AIM Photonics. AIM Photonics offers design tools, pilot photonics foundry, test, and packaging capabilities.
