Optically Active Materials in Fibers and Silica-on-Silicon Integrated Photonics Circuits

    Project Details


    The MUP2 frame program "Optically Active Materials in Fibers and Silica-on-Silicon Integrated Photonics Circuits" aims to develop photonics components for local networks and high speed optical communication systems. This requires development of new, optically active and non-linear materials. In particular, the progarm has initiated activities within the following areas:
    - Development of processes for erbium doping PECVD grown silica films
    - development of erbium doped silica planar waveguides with gain
    - development of erbium doped loss-less functional devices
    - development of high-concentration erbium doped fibers for fiber lasers
    - development of erbium doped polarisation maintaining fiber
    -development of low-concentration distributed erbium doped fiber for distributed optical amplifiers
    - development of fiber lasers for high-speed systems
    - development of techniques for fiber termination of integrated photonic devices
    - development of models for high-concentration erbium doped waveguides
    - development of models for erbium doped fiber lasers
