Freedom Photonics proposes to develop custom Photonic ICs to allow for dynamic optical packet-switched Tbps optical networks for supercomputers, LAN or data center applications. General statement of how this problem is being addressed: The problem is being addressed through fast-tunable transmitters and optical burst mode receivers. What is to be done in Phase I?: Phase I will address the network design, device design and key technology demonstrations, preparing the ground and removing risk for Phase II. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: The transceivers developed have wide commercial applications in data center and telecom markets.
