WorkInnova 2014

Posted in DTU news

The third edition of workInnova has been successfully hold in Medellin, Colombia the 24th and 25th of November 2014. The main goals were:

  • Present the latest developments in photonics and nanotechnology applications: e-health, energy and smart grid, environmental and bio-sensing, automation of industrial processes and communications;
  • Identify cooperative research possibilities, innovation activities, and business opportunities that will be enabled by such technological breakthroughs in South America and Denmark.

EU project GigaWaM final demo successfully completed

The “Gigabit access passive optical network using Wavelength division Multiplexing” (GigaWaM) was initiated in June 2008. The key technical objectives of the GigaWaM project were to implement 64 channels of 50~GHz channel spacing, delivering 1.25~Gb/s symmetric bandwidth per wavelength across a distance of 20 km on a single fiber. The final tests demonstrated end-to-end optical power loss of only 20 dB over a 20~km distance, providing a comfortable margin in the overall power budget. The system was shown to scale to at least 2.5~Gbps for upstream, and 10~Gb/s downstream, limited by receiver sensitivity only.
