Photonics integration goes open-source with IPKISS
Belgian collaboration releases open-source software to help design complex photomasks for photonics circuits.
The source code for an advanced software platform used to design complex photonics circuits is being released on an open-source basis, in a move designed to speed the development of integrated photonics.
