Applications & Technology Technical Sessions

Applications & Technology Topical Reviews

A&T Topical Reviews emphasize significant advances in the application of photonic technologies to address current real world problems. In 2019, two sessions will be presented on the show floor — open to all attendees. These sessions are comprised of both invited speakers selected for their expertise and contributed talks that have been rigorously peer-reviewed.

Advanced Design, Imaging and Process Technologies for Next Generation Semiconductors

Exhibit Hall Theater I
Tuesday, 7 May and Wednesday, 8 May
13:00 – 15:00

The successful integration of design, layout, imaging solutions and advances in process technologies continue to provide viable working solutions to continue the advancement of logic and memory technologies. This session will highlight recent advances in design layout to on wafer imaging to on wafer final etch of circuitry. Areas of interest include layout ground rules, use of machine learning throughout the design, verification cycle and the application to imaging solutions through pupil and mask optimization (SMO). Insight into metrology issues, scanner/source (laser) improvements and the integration of etch processes will be reviewed.

Progress in Semiconductor Laser Technology

Exhibit Hall Theater I
Tuesday, 7 May and Wednesday, 8 May
13:00 – 15:00

For over half a century, laser technology has undergone a technological revolution. These technologies, particularly semiconductor lasers, have reached a mature stage and transformed from a fundamental area of research into emerging applications and products. This session will present recent progress in the development of novel light sources in a broad wavelength range along with their applications (i.e., lighting, sensing, biophotonics etc).
