ISTFUNFOX

IST: FUNFOX

Full Name:Functional Photonic Crystal Devices for Metropolitan Optical Networks

Duration: 1/7/2004-30/6/2007 (Finished)

Partners:

  • Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Institut d'Optique (CNRS) (coordinator)
  • Alcatel-CIT
  • St. Andrews University
  • Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz-Institut
  • University of Udine
  • IMEC
  • University of Würzburg, Technische Physik
  • Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, IPEQ
  • Photon Design Ltd

Objective:

  • The overall objectives of the FUNFOX project consist in demonstrating functional, miniaturised and potentially low-cost components, based both on substrate and membrane approaches, for applications in metropolitan optical networks.

INTEC's Role:

  • Develop a process for integrating 2D fiber couplers-polarisation splitters with low-index contrast InP photonic crystal devices.
