Heightened connection among people around the globe has created tremendous challenges for data center operators. Not only has the surge in demand for bandwidth within data centers been dramatic, but the pace of its increase has never been seen before, opening a huge opportunity for photonic integrated circuits (PIC). In this presentation, we will discuss the challenges presented by massive deployment of photonic devices and PICs inside data centers. In order to address these challenges, practical guidance for reliability and the quality control process in PIC manufacturing will be proposed and reviewed.
