  • To bring to full maturity key advanced components and modules for photonic networks and to demonstrate their practical use in applications.

INTEC's Role:

  • Development of an automated characterisation and parameter extraction framework.
  • Development of advanced laser sources for high-bitrate transmission links and WDM-networks
  • Development of multi wavelength laser consisting of gain section and a passive wavelength demultiplexer based on phased array concept (active/passive integration achieved by selective area growth)
  • Targets : 4-8 channels
  • Channnel spacing : 400 GHz / 200 GHz
