PARADIGM (Photonic Advanced Research And Development for Integrated Generic Manufacturing)

Co-funded by: Framework 7 of European Commission Development Fund

Duration: 10/2010 - 08/2014


  • monolithic integration of DFB lasers, semiconductor optical amplifiers, 10GHz electro-absorption modulators, 40GHz photodiodes, DC phase modulators,and passive-waveguide devices in InP technology

  • development of a generic foundry process that allows device designer (outside of the FhG-HHI) to design photonic-integrated receiver circuits that can be realized at FhG-HHI
