The Photonics Core Technology Platform is an advanced facility that has been exclusively established to address the current and future research activities in the field of telecommunications.

The instruments in this core work in synergy to perform advanced characterizations necessary to test research theories, and for the evaluation and certification (IEEE Standards) of optical and electronic telecommunication devices that operate at very high bit rates. The latest research on data telecommunication channels use a combination of optical and electrical components to offer data rates of 400 Gigabits/sec. The combination of instruments is essential in the field of telecommunication. Individually, the same instruments can be utilized for research in physics, chemistry, engineering, computer science and much more.
