22 - 26
The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI is a world leader in the development for mobile and optical communication networks and systems as well as processing and coding of video signals. Together with international partners from research and industry, Fraunhofer HHI works in the whole spectrum of digital infrastructure – from fundamental research to the development of prototypes and solutions.
At ECOC 2019 Fraunhofer HHI presents the latest developments in Photonic Components and Photonic Networks and Systems at Fraunhofer Booth 88, Hall 1 from September 22 to 26 in Dublin, Ireland.
Generic InP Foundry Platform
An InP technology to cover a vast variety of monolithic or hybrid integration solutions.
The generic InP integration platform at Fraunhofer HHI continues to be extended. Latest upgrades include components for handling of optical polarization as well as general performance upgrades. Fraunhofer HHI offers an InP platform that integrates receivers (40GHz), transmitters (20GHz) and (1dB/cm) passive components. Partners offer services for design work and packaging.
Best of all worlds
Fraunhofer HHI’s PolyBoard platform enables the hybrid integration of complex and highly functional photonic integrated circuits (PICs), including active and passive optical functionalities.
Recently on-chip isolators with an isolation ratio of 30 dB over a bandwidth of 100 nm have been developed as new optical functionalities of the platform, utilizing on-chip free-space sections which also allow the integration of nonlinear optical crystals to target applications in Quantum Technology. Further developments include tunable lasers at 1064 nm and 785 nm for sensing and spectroscopy applications and low-loss vertical multi-mode interference couplers in combination with stacked waveguide layers, paving the way to 3D photonic integration.
Workshop on Hybrid PICs at ECOC
As part of the ECOC, a workshop on Hybrid PICs takes place on September 22, 2019. Organizers of the event are Norbert Keil, Head of Hybrid PICs Group at Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute and Hercules Avramopoulos, ICCS/NTUA.
Hybrid Photonic Integrated Circuits (Hybrid PICs) are complex and cost-effective at the same time. This half-day workshop will cover all topics of Hybrid PICs from materials to integration technologies, enabling platforms and modelling tools towards their use in different fields of applications such as communications, quantum technologies, and sensing.
