Objectif

Polariton Technologies Ltd.'s objective is to deliver the world's fastest and smallest modulators, overcoming the current limitations in telecommunications and sensing applications. In particular, we address the transport bottleneck due to faster evolution in electronic signal generation than in fiber optical transport capability. Modulators that are key components in today’s communication infrastructure perform the conversion from an electrical signal to an optical signal. Today’s electro-optic modulators cannot deliver the speed required for future high-speed telecommunications; they are too large in footprint and hence expensive in fabrication, and energy inefficient. All of this is caused by the photonic nature of current electro-optic modulators. Through recent advances in our endeavor, we could demonstrate plasmonic modulators that are 10 times faster and 100 times smaller than current devices. Further, our devices are extremely energy efficient, thus reducing the carbon footprint for future telecommunication systems.
Coming out of ETH Zurich, Switzerland, Polariton Technologies Ltd. is a newly incorporated start-up. Our preliminary results and the echo from our partners make us confident that we are on the right way for closing the gaps with respect to our objectives. We are currently on the way to prepare the first pilots. In order to produce the first devices we still need to invest in R&D in different sectors to achieve the stability and the ideal packaging for the different applications.
The expected outcome of this feasibility study is to have reached TRL6 with demonstrations of the technology in relevant environment. The EU funding will accelerate market entry by supporting to solve the remaining technical and business related challenges that are relevant to the industry.
