Abstract
Freedom Photonics will investigate new paradigms for ultra-dense and ultra-low power processing electronics that exploit the capability of optical devices. In particular, novel optical gating technologies will be developed with the required robustness, size, power consumption and cascadability to support dense optical interconnects and optical routing with improved capabilities. BENEFIT: The optical ggate technologies developed within this program is expected to lead to new optical networking concepts with increased optical layer functionality. This technology is expected to lead to improved and simplified optical routing paradigms, well positioned for implementation in the emerging market of highly complex optical interconnect networks.
