Denis Paiste, MRL MIT

The semiconductor industry is in a mature manufacturing phase, exploring the application limits of microelectronics and innovative new designs for the microchip. To move a $350 billion semiconductor industry established for microelectronics towards disruptive new photonics applications requires careful coordination among hundreds of companies and the re-envisioning of a novel supply chain to link them. The roadmap provides the definitive path for establishing manufacturing standards and a worldwide consensus on best practices for industry to adopt.


Close to 1,000 people have participated in the creation of the Roadmap, from 300+ organizations in 17 countries.

IKIM is expanding the work it did in integrated photonics to other areas, creating roadmaps for the photonics technician workforce, as well as the workforces in other manufacturing sectors.
