FP7 Collaborative Project on Plasmonics for System-level Applications

The first European research project that aims to utilize plasmonics for system-level applications and bring them into a Tb/s optical routing fabric for data interconnects!

PLATON is a 3-years EC-funded research project envisioning the development and demonstration of an integrated, on-chip Tb/s optical router for back-plane or Blade-Server interconnects through merging plasmonics and silicon photonics technology, employing plasmonics for the switching functionalities and silicon photonics for filtering, multiplexing and header detection processes. PLATON has been launched in January 2010 and is supported by the European Commission within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7-ICT-2009-4).
