Applied Photonics

The Applied Photonics Research Area deals with optical communications and optoelectronics. The main research activities are focused on the study of the physical layer of optical networks, for back-bone with glass optical fibers (GOF) and access based on both glass and plastic optical fibers (POF), and to the study and prototyping of special optical fiber for non-telecom applications; for both research fronts it is possible to achieve a certain level of system integration.
