IRIS project breaks new ground in silicon photonic integration

European project IRIS (www.ict-iris.eu) has concluded with the delivery of a ground-breaking device based on silicon-photonic technology. The demonstrated device is a fully-integrated transponder-aggregator for metro networks, and allows switching and routing 12-channel signals from 4 directions to 8 ports. The ground-breaking aspect of the device is its size: everything is reduced to a 8×8 mm2 silicon photonic chip

Device born in Italy puts the turbo on the internet

The device capable of sending complex signals on optical fibers promises to turbo the internet and telecommunications, making communications much more efficient. It is a revolution comparable to that occurred in electronics thanks to smaller and more powerful chips. Described in Nature Photonics journal, the device was born in Italy, from the Institute of Communication, Information and Perception Technologies (TeCIP) of
