IBM Research has defined the future of information technology for more than 70 years, across its 12 global labs. The development of monolithic integrated silicon photonics and advanced optical packaging concepts, to meet the demand of the emergence of large data centers in cost and performance, is a significant contribution to this tradition. AIM Photonics will provide a basis to build an ecosystem for these technologies entering manufacturing, and will enable new products for industry.
