A wide range of cloud and video applications, together with the increased access speeds enabled by 5G, DAA, and next-generation PON, are driving the need for ever more optical bandwidth. To deliver this bandwidth, optical vendors are developing a broad range of coherent optical transceivers addressing different segments of the market, each with its own set of design considerations.

Photonics researchers make one chip to rule them all

A multifunctional silicon photonics integrated circuit that can be programmed to perform a variety of different functions has been developed by researchers from Spain and the UK.

This is “the first photonic integrated chip that enables multiple functionalities by employing a single common architecture”, according to researchers from the Silicon Photonics Group at the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), University of Southampton, and from the Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications (iTEAM) at the Universitat Politècnica de València,
