DTU Fotonik, Technical University of Denmark



Institute background

The research activities at DTU Fotonik cover a unique spectrum of central core areas within communication technology, laser technology, sensor technology, optics and materials research. DTU Fotonik is one of the only university departments in the world that cover all aspects of Photonics. Research at DTU Fotonik includes development of high speed optical communication systems, novel technologies for metro-access, and short range communication, fibre based lasers and optical enhancers, design and implementation of ultra-high-speed communications systems, development of diode lasers and diode lighting systems, development of optical sensor systems and modeling and production of advanced semiconductor based components, such as lasers and modulators. We also work with the building and administration of advanced communication networks, at back-bone as well as user levels, such a Fibre-to-the-home applications where, among other things, new compression algorithms for, for instance IPTV, are being developed.

As per COFUND guidelines, fellowship programmes will be based on individual-driven mobility, i.e., researchers will be able to freely choose a research topic fitting their individual needs.

The subject of the research project is expected to contribute to European competitiveness and to be in the general field of Photonics and/or its applications. Within these limitations, applicants can freely choose both their research topic and their host organisation, in the spirit of the ‘European Charter for Researchers’.
