At this year's ECOC, the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI presents its latest solutions in the area of photonic components and photonic networks and systems. Meet us at our booth 412.
You find the following highlights at our booth 412:
Tunable Laser with integrated Wavelength Locker - Based on Fraunhofer HHI’s hybrid integration platform PolyBoard
Fraunhofer HHI's PolyBoard platform enables the hybrid integration in one chip of a Polymer/InP tunable laser, a 100-GHz reference etalon based on GRIN lenses, an air gap, and monitor photodiodes coupled by means of 45° mirrors. Wavelength stabilization with a resolution of ±4 GHz has been successfully demonstrated.
Foundry Services for InP PICs
Fraunhofer HHI offers photonic integrated circuits fabricated as an InP platform that integrates receivers (40GHz), transmitters (20GHz) and low-loss (1dB/cm) passive components. VPIcomponentMaker™ Photonic Circuits supports foundry-specific simulations. Our partners offer services for design work and packaging.
1Gbit/s Visible Light Communication
LED luminaires, normally used for lighting purposes, securely transmit data at high speed and low latency even in environments where radio encounters difficulties. A standard RJ45 interface enables the fast integration into existing networks and the use for different applications like distribution of high-definition video streaming as well as two-way communication.
Latest developments cover so-called optical backhaul links based on LED-technology, allowing for point-to-point connections. Data rates up to 500 Mbit/s at 100 m distance and even higher data rates at shorter distances are possible in real-time.
100 GHz Coherent Receiver Frontend - Coherent detection of high-speed optical QPSK and m-QAM signals
High-bandwidth coherent receiver optical frontend for the detection of optical data signals with up to 100 GHz bandwidth. The receiver frontend features optical extender heads with ultra-high bandwidth to be directly connected to electrical oscilloscopes. This system frontend allows coherent detection of high-speed data signals with various modulation formats (QPSK, n-QAM) on multiple optical carriers simultaneously.

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
