PIC Training Silicon Valley 2016

After the first successful PIC training last year with enthusiastic reactions, a second training is now being organized, this time on the West coast in Santa Clara, California. The training is one-stop-shop and covers all the material systems, whether Silicon, InP-based, or dielectrics such as TriPleX (SiO2/Si3N4). The training is supported by JePPIX as well as a broad consortium of companies and is hands-on as well as in-depth. For more info, please refer to the special website.


The date for the PIC training is the week of Monday Nov 14 through Friday Nov 18. This week was picked after checking in detail with interested trainees as well as the supporting companies for their availability/preferences. The program will start on Monday Nov 14 at 9 am and will finish on Friday Nov 18 at 3 pm so people can leave early and get a flight home on Friday evening.


The training is held at Tektronix, Santa Clara, California in US-SCLA Training Room 229. Santa Clara is right in the center of Silicon Valley where many of the important high tech companies in the world are located. For example, Intel, Google, Infinera, Cadence, Cisco, Apple, eBay, Yahoo, and many others are all headquartered in Silicon Valley. In addition, Silicon Valley hosts many companies that are active in photonic integration.

Santa Clara is easily reachable via either San Jose (SJC) 12min or San Francisco (SFO) 45 min airports.
