LOLIPOP | Lithium NiObate empowered siLIcon nitride Platform for fragmentation free OPeration in the visible and the NIR

“LOLIPOP is a photonic integration project that aims
to fill this gap, and enable
the silicon nitride platform
to make the next step and
fully flourish.

LOLIPOP project

Despite the huge progress by photonics, extended spectral bands at wavelengths below 1100 nm remain heavily underserved in terms of integration solutions. At the same time, the silicon nitride is booming and the lithium niobate is making an impressive comeback in the form of lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI), with both materials being transparent both in the visible and the NIR. With all these viewed as a unique opportunity, LOLIPOP steps in to develop a disruptive platform that will offer the highest integration, modulation and second order nonlinear performance in the entire spectrum from 400 up to 1600 nm, based on the combination of the LNOI and the silicon-nitride (TriPleX) technology.
