Automotive VLC - Open Hardware Project Kommunikation mit sichtbarem Licht (2. Projektphase)

Licht emittierende Dioden (LEDs) werden immer häufiger als primäre Lichtquelle im Innen- wie auch im Außenbereich eingesetzt. Neben ihrer Funktion als Lichtquelle können LEDs, dank ihrer hohen Schaltgeschwindigkeit, auch für das neue Einsatzgebiet der Kommunikation mit sichtbarem Licht (VLC) verwendet werden. VLC nutzt dabei mehrere THz lizenzfreie ...

PhoQS project: Quantum Assisted Sensor Systems

In this research project, a quantum-assisted lidar and photonic radar system will be built. For this purpose, a sensor transmit signal is modulated onto a CW laser signal, which is then transmitted directly (lidar) or after electro-optical conversion and an optional frequency multiplication (radar). In the case of photonic radar, the received ...

RadiOptics - EXIST Business Start-up Grant: RadiOptics

The goal of the RadiOptics project is to commercialize the next generation of microwave signal generators using a mode-locked laser (MLL). MLLs can generate a low-noise optical reference clock which have better precision in time unit measurement by orders of magnitude. The optical pulses of MLLs, however, cannot simply be used in a conventional ...
