Optical communication technology and fiber optics are the technological foundation of today‘s Internet. Berlin-Brandenburg is one of the world’s leading locations in this field. The German capital region unites worldwide leading research institutions such as the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration (IZM) with major sector players like Corning, Finisar, Leoni, ADVA and Coriant and many highly innovative small and medium-sized companies like SHF, LUCEO and FOC. Thanks to the high level of interconnection in its photonics cluster and the location‘s appealing incentives, Berlin-Brandenburg offers unique conditions to innovative companies in the sector. Optical communication networks, energy-efficient laser diodes and the implementation of the 100G standard are the region‘s primary focal areas. »State-of-the-art technology in historical buildings! Juxtapositions like this are typical of vibrant Berlinand support Coriant‘s choice of Berlin as its location. It is the perfect place for being involved on a global level.« Peter Streit Senior Vice President Operations Coriant GmbH »Half of all the information on the Internet is transferred via transmitter and receiver chips that were developed and produced in Berlin.« Prof. Dr. Martin Schell Director Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute New paths for wireless data communication Wireless data transmission via radio is standard today, but this is not always the ideal solution. Optical wireless data communication can be a valuable alternative because it facilitates reliable high-speed connection in areas where radio-based systems cannot be used or are undesirable – in medicine, production halls, aircraft or under water, for example. The researchers at Berlin‘s Heinrich Hertz Institute are working on one method called visible light communication (VLC). With this wireless transmission technology, data can be transfered via the commercial LED lamps used to illuminate rooms. At a data rate of up to 800 Mbits/s, the developers‘ optical WiFi technology holds the current world record. Data highways in space When Sentinel-1A, the ESA imaging satellite, was successfully launched, Berlin reinforced its position as a reference site for development and production in the field of free-space optical communication. Equipped with a laser communication terminal that contains the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut‘s laser diode benches and several optical components and systems from Berliner Glas Group, the satellite uses

Powerful scientific basis Large number of specialized small and medium-sized companies with a wide range of know-how Close networking between science and business R&D areas of concentration: Photonics system integration (chip-integrated and hybrid), optical sensor systems for orientation and position determination, analytics, the development of high-rate dynamic communication systems and free-space optical communication Appealing location for well-educated skilled specialists Excellent financial incentives Photo of Berlin from the Sentinel-1A satellite, transmitted via laser laser to transmit data across very long routes: a first in imaging satellite communication. Laser technology shift Internet services and the associated data centers require enormous amounts of elec tricity. This is a highly important ecology- and economy-related theme. The interconnects used today are encountering physical limits when it comes to energy efficiency, data rate and transmission distance. This is why a technology shift that will satisfy data center electricity needs at high transmission rates and temperatures is necessary. This is where research being done at TU Berlin comes in. The scientists there are developing innovative optical interconnects based on radically energy-efficient, surface-emitting lasers. In comparison to classical electrical and optical interconnects, they provide a significantly higher data transmission rate – at a low energy consumption rate, higher temperatures and larger maximum transmission routes. »For optical communication and sensor systems technology, the physical advantages of optoelectronics and optical packaging technologies in data communication and telecommunication, medical technology, industrial sensor systems and the life sciences are crucial. A wide spectrum of expertise, a first-class research infrastructure, short channels and sustainable networks – these are the factors that make Berlin-Brandenburg attractive. For many years, the close exchange between science and business has been a tradition in our focal area of photonics for communication and sensors.« Dr. Henning Schröder Spokesperson Focal Area Photonics for Communication and Sensors Fraunhofer IZM Michael Graurock Managing Director FISBA Photonics GmbH »FISBA is the market leader in the area of micro optics for laser diodes. Our experience shows that Berlin is a hot spot for new developments and their translation into industrial applications in our field and adjacent ones.« Close networking in the cluster Photonics for communication and sensors is one of the six focal areas in the Photonics cluster in Berlin-Brandenburg, one of the world‘s leading sector locations. The powerful scientific basis and the large number of specialized small and medium-sized companies with a wide range of know-how create the ideal conditions for mutual transfer between science and industry. At the same time, it drives innovation in other sectors. This is reflected in a very dynamic growth profile. The yearly growth rate averages 8% and the share of exports is 86%.
