EIC Transition Challenge: Chip-scale optical frequency combs


The overall goal of this Challenge is to advance technological developments of the light states in driven nonlinear systems and to develop novel platforms for chip-scale frequency combs.

This Challenge aims to foster skills, talent, and innovation in semiconductor technologies, specifically for using advanced materials and the integration of photonics and microelectronics in cutting-edge chips. This Challenge should lead to novel results deep-tech innovations for next-generation chip technologies that will enable new applications, providing strong competitive advantage for future innovative start-ups and SMEs that the EIC can further support towards scale up through its Accelerator scheme.
