About UC Santa Barbara, AIM Photonics
The Institute for Energy Efficiency is an interdisciplinary research institute at UC Santa Barbara that is dedicated to the development of cutting-edge science and technologies that support an efficient and sustainable energy future. The institute’s research activities leverage the considerable expertise of UC Santa Barbara’s highly acclaimed faculty, scientists, engineers and researchers. The west coast headquarters of AIM Photonics is administered and managed by the Institute for Energy Efficiency.
AIM Photonics is a new Department of Defense (DOD) funded Institute for Manufacturing Innovation (IMI) in the National Network for Manufacturing Institutes (NNMI) led by the Research Foundation of the State University of New York (RF-SUNY). AIM Photonics will create an end-to-end integrated photonics manufacturing ‘ecosystem’ in the U.S., and will include integrated design tools for efficient simulation and design of integrated photonics circuits, domestic photonic device fabrication foundry access, automated packaging, assembly and test of integrated photonic circuits, and workforce development. Activities under AIM Photonics will enable universities and small-to-medium enterprises... to participate in the integrated photonics revolution. AIM Photonics will bring government, industry and academia together with the goal of organizing the current fragmented domestic capabilities in integrated photonic technology and better position the U.S. relative to global competition.
