Senior Process Integration and Development Engineer Laser interfacing
Huawei Technologies Research & Development Belgium NV is a center of excellence for silicon photonics design and processing. Initially called Caliopa, it was created as a spin-off from the University of Gent and Imec in 2010 and then was acquired by Huawei in 2013. Huawei is the global No.2 telecom solution provider and uses approximately one sixth of all photonics components produced in the world. Huawei aims to significantly reduce the cost of these components by investing aggressively in silicon photonics research and development and implementing solutions based on this technology. Huawei R&D Belgium Caliopa team is at the heart of this research and development. Silicon Photonics has achieved excellent results monolithically integrating high performance passives, various modulators and detectors but monolithic integration of laser devices is still some way from production. In order to address this Huawei has different programs whose goal is to deliver a laser-silicon photonics chip interface which is both low cost and compatible with non-hermetic packaging. For each approach modifications to the silicon photonics chip are required to provide the ‘handles’ necessary to enable the various low cost packaging solutions. A position has now been created for a Senior Process Integration and Development Engineer Laser interfacing to take responsibility for the development activities on the silicon photonics platform related to these different interface solutions. Huawei Technologies R&D Belgium N.V. is headquartered in Gent, Belgium and silicon photonics products are fabricated by different foundries in Europe. Although the role is nominally based in Gent this work will be done in close collaboration with a Huawei foundry partner in Europe and it is expected that the job will require extended periods based at this foundry.read more »
