Although a photonic integration project, HAMLET has been conceived using a top-down approach in an effort to address the challenge for the development of a powerful photonic integration technology for microwave photonics. Within the set of possible applications, future 5G systems stand out due to their technical challenge and commercial potential.
HAMLET's work invested on the exploitation and the combination of the features and capabilities of the following technologies and integration platforms:
- Passive optical polymer - PolyBoard™
- Si3N4/SiO2 platform - TriPleX™
- InP elements
