AbstractPhotonic integrated circuits (PICs) are considered one of the most attractive and promising solutions for modern optoelectronics, with the potential impact on the market similar to integrated electronics revolution. From two major technology platforms, based either on silicon or indium phosphide, the latter is much more attractive due to the possibility of realizing monolithically integrated laser light sources, amplifiers, modulators and detectors operating in the third telecom window. Nowadays two European InP foundries, SMART Photonics and Heinrich Hertz Institute, offer access to their generic platforms by means of organizing multi-project wafer runs, which provides an efficient and costoptimized way of prototyping novel photonic devices. This offer is complemented by support in desinging and optimizing PIC-based solutios, provided presently by several European design houses, one of which is Eastern Europe Design Hub (EEDH) at Institute of Microelectronics and Optoelectronics of Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. In this work we demonstrate the capabilities of the InP technology with respect to applications in optical communication networks and optical sensing systems, which are at present the main drivers of integrated photonics market growth. To showcase the concept of photonic integration and demonstrate its potential we discuss selected examples of photonic integrated circuits - multichannel transmitters and receivers, interrogators of a fiber Bragg gratings based sensors, optical gyroscope systems and others. We present and discuss also the concept of hybrid integration of PICs with integrated electronic circuits. All presented and discussed circuits were designed by EEDH research team and realized using InP-based generic integration technology.
