At the European Micrwove Week (EuMW) in Berlin, the workshop "Broadband and Microwave Signal Processing Using Electronic-Photonic Integration" was held by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christoph Scheytt (Uni Paderborn) and Prof. Dr. Jeremy Witzens (RWTH Aachen). Several SPP members participated in presentations at the workshop.
The annual status meeting took place on September 6 and 7, 2023 at the Heinz Nixdorf Institute of the University of Paderborn. Current research statuses of the subprojects were presented and discussed by the total of 29 participants.
At the Signal Processing in Photonic Communications (SPPCom) subconference, Mr. Olaf Schulz, a Ph.D. student at the Chair of Communications (CAU Kiel), qualified as one of three finalists for the prestigious Best Paper Awards with his paper, "Nonlinear Fourier Transform Based WDM Transmission Using Electronic-Photonic Signal Processing," and was awarded the Best Student Paper Award.
At the SPPCom in Busan, the workshop "Ultrafast Signal Processing by Combined Photonic-Electronic Integrated Systems: Where, why and when?" was conducted by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Wirt.Ing. Stephan Pachnicke (CAU Kiel) and Dr.-Ing. Patrick Runge (Fraunhofer HHI). Several scientists from the SPP participated.
The SPP2111 Summer School 2022 took place on September 15 and 16 at DESY Hamburg. The summer school included 4 lectures, a DESY guided tour, a social event and a poster session. 24 PhD students participated in the school. The lectures dealt with mode-locked lasers and modeling of integrated lasers, as well as photonic quantum computing and corresponding sources and detectors. All participants visited different laboratories at DESY and exchanged…
On September 5 and 6, 2022, this year's workshop/status meeting of the DFG priority program SPP 2111 took place at the Heinz Nixdorf Institute. A total of 35 participants, including professors and staff from 10 subprojects, gathered in Paderborn. A welcome by Prof. Scheytt was followed by a short overview of the DFG projects of the last years by Dr. Neumann from the DFG. During two days, each subproject presented its work, followed by a…
We are pleased about the extension of SPP 2111 for the period 2022 to 2025! In the 2nd phase, 10 research projects and one coordination project will be funded with a total of 7.5 million EUR. To get started together, a kickoff meeting was held on 09.02.2022. In the meeting, the projects for the 2nd phase were presented an discussed. The kick-off took place online due to the pandemic situation.
In ECOC Workshop WS 5, ten speakers from academia and industry presented current and future examples of electronic-photonic signal processing circuits enabled by photonic integration and addressed their challenges and limitations.
