Workshop Integration of novel materials into silicon photonics

Experts from academia and industry discussed recent advances on the integration of novel materials into silicon photonic platforms and presented the recent advances of the field. Also, they discussed the possible advantages and challenges posed by different materials – from quantum dots, to perovskites, to 2D-materials, etc. – and by different integration strategies.
