ALl optical signal recovery by Photonic neural network Integrated in a transceiver module

Project description

Miniature photonic 'brains' restore integrity in optical networks

Optical networks in which information is carried by photons, rather than electrons, have revolutionised information and communications technologies, supporting an explosion of new applications in many fields. Communications capacity has grown exponentially but is facing an important bottleneck due to hardware-related signal degradation. The EU-funded ALPI project is developing optical circuits that mimic neuronal circuits such as those found in the nervous system to overcome this barrier. In contrast to other computational approaches that are associated with high energy consumption, these all-optical novel networks can be trained to do their jobs efficiently, reducing energy consumption and increasing transmission capacity.
