Photonics – enabling technologies, still and now more than ever!

Berlin Brandenburg is one of the innovation hotspots in very diverse fields of Photonics, optics, microsystems technologies and quantum technologies. Berlin Brandenburg is also a start-up hotspot in digital and also photonics based technologies.

During this year’s Photonics Days Berlin Brandenburg, TERAmeasure will participate in the session “Photonic terahertz technology for beyond 5G wireless communication”, which will be held on Tuesday, October 05, 2021 from 10:00 am, chaired by Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Björn Globisch (Assistant Professor Technische Universität Berlin & Head of THz Sensor Systems Group at Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI)

The online seminar on photonic terahertz technologies for broadband wireless communication will review current trends, recent developments and future challenges of wireless links in the terahertz band. Possible application scenarios are mobile backhauling for 6G networks and ultra-broadband short reach links. A special focus will be laid on photonic and hybrid integration technologies as well as photonic terahertz sources and sensitive receivers for broadband wireless links. The webinar is organized by Fraunhofer HHI in cooperation with OpTecBB as part of the Photonics Days Berlin Brandenburg 2021.
