NAnophotonics for TErabit Communications
NATEC is a Centre of Excellence funded by the Villum Kann Rasmussen Foundation to do fundamental research on devices based on quantum dots and photonic crystals and their application in terabit communication systems. This involves fundamental theory, fabrication, characterization and systems experiments.
The Centre of Excellence is headed by Prof. Jesper Mørk from DTU Fotonik and the research will be carried out in collaboration with DTU Nanotek (Antti-Pekka Jauho), DTU Mekanik (Ole Sigmund and Jakob Søndergaard Jensen), DTU CEN (Rafal Dunin-Bokowski), DTU DANCHIP (Mogens Rysholt Poulsen) and DTU Fotonik (Christophe Peucheret, Palle Jeppesen, Leif Oxenløwe, Kresten Yvind, Lars Frandsen, Jørn M. Hvam, Niels Asger Mortensen).
The overall funding is DKK 25 million over a period of five years. The Villum Kann Rasmussen foundation supports research activities, especially within the technical and natural sciences, agricultural and veterinary sciences and industry research.
