DTUFor almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted—the father of electromagnetism—who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increase and develop our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s scientific advice.

The DTU Photonics Communications Technologies Cluster works with all aspects of current and future communication technologies. This cluster consists of four research groups working with networks, wireless communication, high-speed transmission, and video coding.

High-Speed Optical Communications Group

Research topics:

  • Nonlinear optical signal processing: parametric effects, time lenses
  • Digital signal processing: coherent optical communications
  • Silicon photonics: photonic chips for future supercomputers
  • Space-division multiplexing: Multi-core/multi-mode fibers
  • Tbit/s Ethernet: Data center applications
  • Ultra-high-speed communications: 1.28 Tbit/s swrial data, THz photonics

Research themes:

Space, time, silicon (space+optical signal processing), THz, time lenses, WDM advanced modulation regeneration, data centers, phase-sensitive
