    International audienceSilicon photonics has allowed cost reduction and performance improvement for optical interconnects for the past few years, and short-reach wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) links have recently emerged thanks to the introduction of microring modulators and filters [1-5]. Nevertheless, the promise of optical networks-on-chip foreseen in [1] has to face the integration challenges of scalable low-footprint elementary drivers and robust operation under heavy thermal stress due to self-heating of the cores with varying loads. This work presents a 3D-stacked CMOS-on-Si-photonic transceiver chip, which includes base building-blocks targeting die-to-die WDM optical communication for multicore processors: 10Gbps 2.5V pp OOK modulator driver, associated receiver, and digitally-supervised analog wavelength stabilization using microring heaters and remapping for 0-to-90¬įC operating range, for a total footprint of 0.01mm 2 per microring

    The DUNE Far Detector Vertical Drift Technology, Technical Design Report

    International audienceDUNE is an international experiment dedicated to addressing some of the questions at the forefront of particle physics and astrophysics, including the mystifying preponderance of matter over antimatter in the early universe. The dual-site experiment will employ an intense neutrino beam focused on a near and a far detector as it aims to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy and to make high-precision measurements of the PMNS matrix parameters, including the CP-violating phase. It will also stand ready to observe supernova neutrino bursts, and seeks to observe nucleon decay as a signature of a grand unified theory underlying the standard model. The DUNE far detector implements liquid argon time-projection chamber (LArTPC) technology, and combines the many tens-of-kiloton fiducial mass necessary for rare event searches with the sub-centimeter spatial resolution required to image those events with high precision. The addition of a photon detection system enhances physics capabilities for all DUNE physics drivers and opens prospects for further physics explorations. Given its size, the far detector will be implemented as a set of modules, with LArTPC designs that differ from one another as newer technologies arise. In the vertical drift LArTPC design, a horizontal cathode bisects the detector, creating two stacked drift volumes in which ionization charges drift towards anodes at either the top or bottom. The anodes are composed of perforated PCB layers with conductive strips, enabling reconstruction in 3D. Light-trap-style photon detection modules are placed both on the cryostat's side walls and on the central cathode where they are optically powered. This Technical Design Report describes in detail the technical implementations of each subsystem of this LArTPC that, together with the other far detector modules and the near detector, will enable DUNE to achieve its physics goals
