The Lab

WinPhoS group is equipped with suitable software and equipment for the conduction of research through simulation and experimental characterization of Photonic based Integrated Circuits, Systems and Networks. Each division within the group is staffed by highly skilled personnel with varying experience ranging between Senior Researcher and MSc Students. For the accommodation of the different research areas, WinPhos is constantly investing in the expansion and upgrade of existing infrastructure with the inclusion of new tools that enable more in depth analysis of optical and electrical signals. The lab is able to handle packaged and non-packaged optoelectronic chips and 5G equipment.

To date WinPhoS is equipped with the following equipment:


  • Lumerical for electromagnetic simulations
  • VPI for system level setups
  • Zemax for free space setups
  • Synopsis and Nazca software for GDSII design
  • Network performance analysis simulators for large scale Data Center and HPC networks based on Omnet++ platform
