IHP coordinates large EU-Project on the development of the 5th Generation of Mobile Networks (5G). The project kick-off meeting takes place on 24.-26.07.2017 at IHP in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.
The world becomes more mobile and the requirements for transmitting pictures, videos, music and cloud data are increasing.
To cope with the growing mobile data traffic, the fifth generation of mobile networks, termed 5G, is being defined and developed. IHP - Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics in Frankfurt (Oder) is coordinating an EU funded project in this field.
“Within 5G-PICTURE, the aim is to develop an integrated transport network involving optical and wireless communications, to allow a dynamic adaptation to changing requirements. Together with distributed compute and storage resources, this will be the backbone for our future mobile internet access”, explains Prof. Eckhard Grass, coordinator and Team Leader at IHP.
The project consortium, consisting of nineteen European partners, has a vision of an integrated, scalable and open 5G infrastructure aiming to support operational and end-user services for both information and communications technologies (ICT) and ‘vertical’ industries.
“This infrastructure will rely on a converged fronthaul and backhaul solution, integrating advanced wireless access and novel optical network domains”, adds Dr. Jesús Gutiérrez Terán, who is Project Leader at IHP’s department “System Design”.
5G is considered to significantly enhance former mobile radio platforms. It will allow a speed of several Gigabit per second - at least ten times faster than current 4G technology. The EU is funding “5G-PICTURE” with about eight million Euro as part of the Horizon 2020 program. The work at IHP will be funded with about 600.000 Euro.
“The joint work of experts from many different countries across Europe in a project like 5G-PICTURE not only accelerates the development of the 5G technology but also supports mutually beneficial cooperation in science, technology and industries within the European Union at a larger scale”, points out Prof. Eckhard Grass.
The project kick-off meeting takes place on 24.-26.07.2017 at IHP in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.
Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.
An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.
Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
