Transmitting Data Using Light

As the digital transformation is essential to every part of our society, needs for high-speed transceivers is set to continue. To illustrate, a staggering 90% of today’s data has been generated within the last three years [1]. We therefore emphasize achieving ultra-high-speed, premium-quality communication links, supporting symbol rates beyond 200 GBd. The range of applications comprises:

  • Datacom: short-reach data center transceivers converting electrical signals to optical ones both inside the data center and between campuses.
  • Telecom: long-haul transceivers converting electrical signals to optical ones in long distance communications.
  • Wireless: 5G/6G transceivers at macro cell sites bringing the signal from the backhaul to the antennas.
  • Space and free-space optical (FSO) communication: optical links coping with the bandwidth demand of future and satellite-ground networks.
