IPD for short-range optical communications:
Various integrated photonic devices for the realization of photonic transmitters and receivers will be designed, simulated and realized with the focus on energy-efficient short range optical interconnect applications especially for on-board inter-chip, or on-interposer inter-chip communications.
IPD for optical signal processing and computing:
Nonlinearities in integrated waveguides is being investigated for basic optical signal processing and computing applications.
