Photonics in Computing II

This project is about photons and electrons in information technology. It aims at developing micro-optic components and optoelectronic devices that could play a major role in digital optical information processing and switching systems.

Besides work on the level of individual components, the project concentrates on the construction and demonstration of different prototypes of photonically enhanced information processing systems with high aggregate data throughputs and fast reconfigurable data routing.
