Abstract [en]

We formulate a “Moore’s law” for photonic integrated circuits (PICs) and their spatial integration density using twomethods. One is decomposing the integrated photonics devices of diverse types into equivalent basic elements, which makes acomparison with the generic elements of electronic integrated circuits more meaningful. The other is making a complex componentequivalent to a series of basic elements of the same functionality, which is used to calculate the integration density for functionalcomponents realized with different structures. The results serve as a benchmark of the evolution of PICs and we can concludethat the density of integration measured in this way roughly increases by a factor of 2 per year. The prospects for a continuedincrease of spatial integration density are discussed.
