We present results on optical crosstalk in the photonic integration platform developed at Fraunhofer HHI. Two fundamental mechanisms are investigated: stray light generation at butt-joints and coupling between two passive waveguides. The latter can happen in two regimes: evanescently or radiatively, depending on the gap between the waveguides. Measurements show the amount of crosstalk that is to be expected on ASPICs. Moreover, means to reduce crosstalk levels that are compatible with the existing technology are demonstrated.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

  • Wu Q.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
