DEVELOPMENT OF OPTICAL FREQUENCY COMB GENERATOR BASED ON A WHISPERING GALLERY MODE MICRORESONATOR AND ITS APPLICATIONS IN TELECOMMUNICATIONS

 

The objective of the project is to obtain new knowledge on whispering gallery mode resonator-based optical frequency combs (WCOMBs) and to develop, construct and test a comb generator prototype for telecommunication applications. The project contributes to the implementation of axes of transformation of the national economy and growth priorities defined in the Latvian Smart Specialization Strategy and to the development of areas of specialization:
• 3. Smart materials, technologies and engineering systems (as new WGM resonators and frequency comb technologies will be developed);
• 5. Information and communication technologies (as an application of WGM resonator frequency combs in telecommunication will be developed).

The project contributes these economical activities (NACE Rev. 2.0.): 26 Manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products, 26.7 Manufacture of optical instruments and photographic equipment; 61 Telecommunications, and 72.19. Other research and experimental development on natural sciences and engineering.
The project includes research categories - industrial research and experimental development. The project corresponds to fields of R&D: 1.3. Physical Sciences and 2.2. Electrical engineering, Electronic engineering, Information engineering. Therefore the project is multidisciplinary.
The type of the project – “activity having no economic nature”.

Main activities (work packages) of the project are:
A1. Development, modelling, testing and optimization of WCOMB;
A2. The development, construction and testing of portable WCOMB for application in fiber optical communication systems;
A3. The adjustment and validation of the portable WCOMB prototype in commercial fiber optical communication system;
A4. Dissemination of project results;
All activities will be held in collaboration among all 3 partners of the project.

Main results planned in the project:
- 5 scientific publications cited in SCOPUS. 2 of them will be in journals with citation rate above 50% of the average;
- 3 technology rights – know-how;
- 1 technology right – patent application;
- 1 license agreement on one or more technology rights;
- 3 prototypes.
