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.

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.
Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...
Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, provider of research and development services for OLED lighting solutions, announces the founding of the “OLED Licht Forum” and presents latest OLED design and lighting solutions during light+building, from March 18th – 23rd, 2018 in Frankfurt a.M./Germany, at booth no.

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...
For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.
In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
Animal photoreceptors capture light with photopigments. Researchers from the University of Göttingen have now discovered that these photopigments fulfill an...
