About the Project

This project will investigate an emerging technology called microresonator frequency comb (or microcomb). A microcomb has the astonishing property of generating hundreds of optical frequencies in a microphotonic chip when illuminated with a single-frequency laser and is a strong contender for wavelength division multiplexing. This project envisions entering a new era in optical communications, where the phase coherence of microcombs is fully capitalized for realizing multidimensional signal processing architectures in the field of fiber-optic communications. The project is partly financed by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

About the Department

The Photonics laboratory at the Microtechnology and Nanoscience Department (MC2) is a dynamic and creative group with about 30 members working in an international and collaborative atmosphere. We perform both curiosity-driven and applied-research in the areas of optoelectronics, nanophotonics, and fiber optic systems. We enjoy a state-of-the-art laboratory for fiber-optic communications and have access to in-house cleanroom facilities to manufacture photonic devices. Please visit:
