(Nicole Lindenmann) In March the project partners of the BMBF funded project “Phoibos” met at IBM Research in Rüschlikon (CH) for their half-annual meeting. In fruitful discussions the next steps in the project have been identified and the achievements of the first project year have been reviewed. One highlight of the meeting was the presentation of the dedicated photonic wire bonder that has been installed at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in early March.
