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.
You find the following highlights at our Booth 350 in Hall 3:
InP Foundry Services – Photonic Integration Toolbox
Fraunhofer HHI enables an own design of InP-based Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) containing passive and active devices on one substrate. It is possible to choose from a range of proven building blocks, such as 40 GHz receivers, 20 GHz transmitters, and 1 dB/cm passive waveguides. Low-cost multi-project-wafer-run-based PICs are already commercially available through Jeppix and customer-specific private runs can be realized on demand. Dedicated design and layout software is provided, and several packaging partners are available.
InP Lasers for Integration into Silicon Photonics – Optical Sources for Si-Photonics
Fraunhofer HHI provides DFB lasers, gain chips and SOAs with flip chip capability for hybrid integration on Si-Platforms. Single devices and arrays are offered for lateral and vertical coupling schemes. InGaAsP and InGaAlAs are used as active MQW layer and operating wavelengths range from 1270 nm to 1650 nm.
PolyBoard Foundry Services
The PolyBoard integration platform allows for rapid prototyping, short iteration cycles and low upfront development effort. Fraunhofer HHI's technology allows the integration of on-chip free space elements, 3D structures, graphene electro-absorption modulators, as well as other optical functionalities such as switches, variable optical attenuators, and tunable lasers.
LED based Optical Wireless Backhaul Link
The robust, low latency infrared LED link is well suited for mobile backhaul. The technology is also well suited for wireless point-to-point communication in industrial environments.
Optical Wireless Links for industrial M2M applications
The robust, mobile data links based on illumination LEDs are insensitive to EM-interference and well-suited for wireless, secure communication in industrial environments.
Real-time Digital Signal Processing Platform for Terabit Transmission
The Fraunhofer HHI presents innovative solutions for real-time signal processing in optical terabit-class transmission systems. This includes a compact coherent optical receiver (> 70 GHz bandwidth) and a sophisticated processing platform based on 56 GSa/s ADCs and Xilinx Ultrascale® FPGAs. In addition, Fraunhofer HHI portfolio provides a variety of high-performance software algorithms for real-time signal processing and for digital non-linear pre-distortion.

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
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...
In the eternal search for next generation high-efficiency solar cells and LEDs, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and their partners are creating...
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.
