Research fields of the Optical communications group

The Optical communications group mission is to produce high-quality scientific knowledge in the fields of photonics and electronic applications through research projects, R&D contracts and collaboration agreements with the private sector.

Its research is based on the synergy of four main research fields:

In the last five years, the group has published more than 100 international papers and conference contributions in these topics and it has participated in a number of research projects.

We have contributed to more than 20 Spanish CICYT projects or European ones, (European Network of Excellence NEFERTITI–IST-2001-32786, Project STOLAS IST-2000-28557, COST action 299, COST action TD 1001) or several projects from Gobierno de Navarra, all related with photonic sensors or optical communications.

We have also carried out a number of projects for private companies as Azkoyen, Volskwagen, Nanosonic (USA), Talltec sensors, AH & Associates, Navarra de gestión para la administración, Ingenieria Domótica, Gamesa Eólica, related with fiber optic communications, sensors and home automation systems.

Several Spin-offs have been created from our group, such as Ingeniería Domótica, Nanoresist or Nadetech S.L.

The group also belongs to the Spanish Technologic Platform of Photonics (Fotónica 21) and nanoelectronics and integration of smart systems (Genesis Red).
