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 ...

TRR 142 - Compact high performance photon pair source using ultrafast hybrid modulators based on CMOS and LNOI (C11*)

The project aims to study and demonstrate miniaturized sources of decorrelated photon pairs with high repetition rate. The goal will be achieved by jointly integrating high-bandwidth electro-optic modulators, and a specifically tailored parametric down-conversion (PDC) section, both in a lithium-niobate-on-insulator (LNOI) platform. To obtain ...
