Oxford Instruments Process Solutions enable next generation datacomms with ultrafast photonics devices facilitated at AMO GmbH

Researchers at AMO GmbH have used Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology’s fabrication solutions to develop a graphene based photonics device capable of operating at a data rate of 25 Gb/s per channel. These devices convert optical modulation data into electrical signals that are compatible with electronics-based IT systems, unlocking data streams at ultrafast speeds and large bandwidths, thus becoming a key enabler for the next generation of mobile communication.
