Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Wavelength Optical Conversion

Acronym: ConvOCO
Main Objective:
Project in consortium with Siemens SA, which aims to develop techniques for optical performance monitoring, for each channel of a multi wavelength optical communications system, based in measurable physical properties. We intend also to study, simulate and implement a optical wavelength conversion module. Both physical functions should be capable to process and analyse optical intensity modulated signals with a 10 Gbit/s bitrate. Both functions will be integrated in a late prototype, where the developed functionalities will be demonstrated. The developed functionalities are in agreement with the needs of the future photonic networks, where the processing and analysis of the signals will be realized completely in the optical domain.
