IST: NEWTON

Full Name:NEw Widely Tunable lasers for Optical Networks

Duration: 1/9/2001-1/3/2005 (Finished)

Partners:

  • IMEC - University of Gent (INTEC)- Belgium
  • Intune Technologies Ltd. - Ireland
  • Technische Universität München (Walter Schottky Institute) - Germany
  • Syntune - Sweden

Objective:

  • To develop and experimentally investigate new types of widely tunable laser diodes which are expected not to exhibit the disadvantages of existing types. A total of three new concepts for widely tunable laser diodes will be investigated in the project.

INTEC's Role:

  • Project coordination
  • Design and characterisation of new widely tunable TTG and Y-branch laser diodesDesign
  • Fabrication and characterisation of widely tunable ring resonator sampled grating filter
  • Grating fabrication for widely tunable TTG laser diode.
