Final Report - MUFINS (Multi - Functional Integrated arrays of Interferometric switched)

Project ID: 4222
Funded under: FP6-IST


The staggering rate at which data networks have grown in recent decades, whether connecting homes, business or cities, has been made possible because scientists are coming up with increasingly faster ways of sending information over copper and optical cables. The EU, for its part, earmarked almost EUR 3 million from the Sixth Framework Programme to foster this growth.

The need for ever-faster data transfer rates was the starting point of the Mufins (Multi-functional integrated arrays of interferometric switches) project which sought to develop all-optical network components such as amplifiers and switches at acceptable prices. The main achievements per work package of this three-year project are summarised in this final activity report.
