Nature Photonics: Terabit communications with miniaturized optical frequency comb source

April 14, 2014. Publishing in the well-known journal Nature Photonics we present our recent results obtained with microresonator-based frequency combs. For the first time we show that these so-called Kerr combs can be used for coherent data transmission systems and enable data rates of more than a terabit/s. Such sources could be used for example for chip-scale terabit/s optical interconnects.

IPQ successful at this year’s Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics (KDOP)

November 6, 2013. Swen König has been awarded the Karlsruhe School of Optics & Photonics (KSOP) publication award 2013 in the research area optical systems at this year’s Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics (KDOP) for his recent Nature Photonics publication “Wireless sub-THz communication system with high data rate”. Furthermore, Aleksandar Nesic has been awarded the best poster prize in the research area optical systems for his work on “Nanophotonic systems for reconfigurable ultra-fast signal processing”.

 
Nature Photonics: Wireless sub-THz communication system with high data rate

October 13, 2013. The results of our latest wireless data transmission experiment have been published in the renowned journal Nature Photonics. We demonstrate transmission of a record data rate of 100 Gbit/s over a distance of 20 m using a carrier frequency of 237.5 GHz. Our scheme combines the strengths of photonic signal processing techniques with latest sub-terahertz electronics. The experiment is a major step towards wireless communications at terabit/s data rates. (See press release: German, English)

Tyngye Li memorial poster award, 2nd prize goes to Aleksandar Nesic, IPQ, KIT

Aleksandar Nesic has been awarded the second prize at the poster competition at the International Nano-Optoelectronic Workshop iNOW-2013. iNOW is an annual summer school that this year took place in Cargèse, France. The work aims at highly efficient silicon-organic hybrid (SOH) phase shifters for reconfigurable photonic-electronic signal processors and was carried out jointly by Luca Alloatti, Jörg Pfeifle, and Aleksandar Nesic.

Corning best Student Paper Award granted to Robert Palmer

Robert Palmer was awarded the best paper award at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference (OFC'2013) at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. The paper was selected among 400 submissions. The OFC is the most prestigeous conference in the field and having a paper presentation at OFC is an honor by itself. Having the best paper is a true achievement.
