Integrated photonic transceivers at sub-terahertz wave range for ultra-wideband wireless communications: iPHOS

Objective:

This project targets the development of compact and low power transceivers that enable wireless data transfer at sub-terahertz carrier frequencies and their application to future high data-rate short-distance communication links.

The interest of the topic relies in the fact that advances in semiconductor technology, favourable spectrum policy and demand for gigabit throughput capabilities have created an opportunity for millimetre wave radio technology above 100GHz.

The iPHOS research plan aims to address what has been identified as the "Achilles heel" of systems operating in this frequency range: "Lack of reliable, compact low cost sources which can give rise to commercially successful products."
