What are the necessary equipments / tools / instruments required to build a silicon photonics lab for research purposes. We need to characterize both active and passive photonic components. How Agilent can help? Are there any simulation tools provided by Agilent Tech?
thanks for posting this interesting question. Agilent has a broad offering of T&M instruments that are used in many Si-Photonics labs worldwide. (However, no Simulation SW yet). As there are many different research topics in the Area of Si-Photonics (like coupling & interfaces, waveguides, Si based optoelectric components Tx, Rx, modulators, optical routing etc.) it is difficult to give a general advice here.
