This logo is for a physics research project. It will be placed on a project website. The overarching objective of the MAGNIFY project is to transition recently developed and patented photonic integrated circuit-based Erbium doped waveguide amplifiers (EDWA) from a lab prototype to a demonstrator, which will be used for early access demonstrator studies with telecommunication companies. The technology will be used in coherent communications and microwave photonics for commercialization. Erbium amplifiers are the key technology for the internet and telecommunications, i.e. fiber connections to transfer data. They amplify optical signals when traveling over hundreds of km. We change currently used bulky devices with a compact photonic chip-based technology. See images of the chips in the attached file
