Enabling Digital Technologies

Safe and secure electronic communication links are a key requirement for the modern society. We are investigating new methods to exploit physical properties of optical and wireless communication media and their quantum prerequisites to increase safety and security.

Research Compound secures best innovation practice

At the Center for Digital Safety & Security we have intertwined the research activities in the fast-emerging technology fields like Photonics, Quantum and Wireless Communications and Embedded Systems to drive innovation and to meet with existing and upcoming digital challenges in all societal and industrial areas of our fully networked data economy.

In the optical domain quantum effects are used to guarantee security, hence nobody can listen to the communication without being detected. For energy efficient high data rate communication links coherent optical communication devices and technologies are investigated. In the wireless domain, we devise novel communication methods for ultra-reliable and low-latency communication links in 5G and future 6G systems.  Use cases include replacing cables with wireless links in industrial production halls or increasing reliability and reducing operational costs of energy efficient systems.
