Research Project: Integrating microphotonics integrated circuits (microPICs)-MEMS inertial sensors on Silicon-On-Insulator -design, fabrication and characterization.
The objective of the project is to use a double Silicon-On-Insulator (SOI) platform to integrate microPICs-MEMS inertial sensors (accelerometers and gyroscopes) on a single chip to provide a multifunction optical navigation microchip that can provide high performance attitude sensing for micro-sat platforms. This project was financially supported by Canadian Space Agency (CSA).

- Integrating micophotonics elements (optical waveguides, T-splitters,…) with MEMS actuators such as Comb drives on one single SOI microchip.
- Performing optical simulation for each micophotonics element using design software and CAD tools.
- Performing ElecroMechanical simulation (CoventorWare) for MEMS parts.
- Optical and mechanical characterization of the fabricated devices.
- Integrating the input of the microchip with optical fibers and the output with photodetectors.
- Packaging using wire bonding.
- Gained six years of experience in optical sensors designing, fabrication and testing.
- Acquired six years of experience in reporting, documentation, advising and making recommendation on a CSA scientific research project.
- Excellence through results-delivering through own work, releationships and responsibilities.
- Engagement-Working effectively with people, organizations, and partners (MPB Inc. and CSA).
