The Institute of Photonics and Quantum Electronics looks back on the successful 115th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Applied Optics (DGaO). More than 260 representatives of industry, scientists and students attended the event at the Concert House (Konzerthaus) in Karlsruhe. The meeting provided an excellent opportunity to discuss a wide range of topics and to share ideas with colleagues and exhibitors.
It is our pleasure to invite you to the Joint Symposium "Photonic Integrated Circuits: Technology and Applications" that is a partnership of the German Association of Applied Optics (DGaO) and the Helmholtz International Research School of Teratronics (HIRST) supported by the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung.
Date: June 13, 2014
Venue: Konzerthaus Karlsruhe, Festplatz 9, 76131 Karlsruhe, GermanyPlease visit the symposium website for more information
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.
