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.

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
