The 2nd phase 5G PPP projects blueSPACE, 5G PHOS, 5G-PICTURE and Metro-Haul jointly organized a workshop and cross-pollination meeting on Optical Fronthaul and Backhaul Technologies for 5G Networks in connection with the IEEE Conference on Photonics in Switching and Computing 2018. The full programme of the cross-pollination workshop, including the speakers’ presentations for download is found below.
Researchers from the University of Twente's MESA+ research institute and the photonics company LioniX International have developed the world's most narrowband diode laser on a chip. This laser represents a breakthrough for the fast-growing field of photonics, bringing applications like 5G mobile Internet and far more accurate GPS measurements closer. Research leader Professor Klaus Boller presented the research results during a scientific conference at Laser World in Munich.
