Arne Leinse Ph.D. [M] (Chief Executive Officer) is active in integrated optics for more than 15 years. He received a PhD degree from the University of Twente in the integrated Optical Microsystems group in 2005. Hereafter he joined LioniX BV where he was involved in the invention and development of the TriPleX™ platform from the beginning. He has been involved from the original concept until the exploitation and (co)authored over 100 articles in the last years. He has been active as Vice-President of LioniX BV in the last years and since the establishment of LioniX-international in 2016 active in the role of Chief Commercial Officer. Since January 2020 Arne is active in the role of CEO, leading the Management Team.
The silicon nitride waveguide platform TriPleX™ excels in low loss Photonic Integrated Circuits. Combining it, via hybrid integration, with other active PIC platforms enables new applications in a broad wavelength range. The presentation will show the latest developments in the nitride platform and examples of these hybrid modules in different application domains. These range from bio-photonic sensing to microwave photonics for 5G. High power ultra-narrow linewidth lasers will be an essential building block in this and in addition the multi project wafer access to the technology for the different wavelength ranges is presented.
