UNIVERSITAET DUISBURG-ESSEN (UDE)
Short description of the participating partner organization
Universität Duisburg-Essen (UDE), Germany serves as the coordinator of IPHOBAC. Our major R&D contribution to IPHOBAC will be the design and development of advanced ultra-wideband and high-output power travelling-wave photomixer with (10-300GHz) and without (110GHz) integrated antennas for optical mm-wave generation, the design and fabrication of packages for antenna-integrated photodetectors and modulators together with U2T and the design and packaging of resonant (60GHz) reflection-type electroabsorption transceiver together with KPRC.
The center for semiconductor technology and photonics (ZHO) at UDE is among the leading German institutes in the field of high-frequency mm-wave electronics and optoelectronics. The researchers involved have a strong and long-lasting background in research and fabrication of high-frequency III/V components and educational activities in the area of optical communications and sensing. UDE performs research on broadband wireless and wireline optical access, low-cost optical access network equipment and components as well as high-frequency compound semiconductor electronics and optoelectronics in general. UDE is contributing to recognized international committees including the IEEE-LEOS, the IEEE-MTT, and the MWP. The researchers involved in IPHOBAC also participated in the European networks such as IST-NEFERTITI, IST-ePhoton/ONe and IST-ePIXnet (still ongoing) as well as in national and European research projects. UDE is a founding member of the European Institute for Telecommunication Technologies (eiTT) and the host of the Optechnet e.V., a national network in optoelectronics and optics representing the German industry in the International Coalition of the Optoelectronics Industry Associations (ICOIA).

Short description of the participants (in alphabetical order)
Rüdiger Buß was born in Duisburg, Germany, on August 11th, 1965. He received the Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering both from Gerhard-Mercator-University Duisburg, Germany, in 1991 and 2002, respectively. In 1991 he joined the Department of Optoelectronics which is part of the Center for Semiconductor Technology and Optoelectronics since 1998. His main research interests are in the fields of neurotechnology, optoelectronic devices and systems for medical applications, artificial neural networks, and fiber-wireless multimedia communication systems. Dr. Buß is a member of the German Association of Electrical Engineers (VDE), the IEEE Lasers & Electro-Optics Society (LEOS), and the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS).
Sascha Fedderwitz was born in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany on November 17th, 1977. He received his Diploma-Engineer degree in electrical engineering from the University Duisburg-Essen of Duisburg in 2006. In his diploma thesis he was concerned with vertical electrooptic modulators based on semiconductor-heterostructures. Since 2007 he is a member of the Department of Optoelectronics at the University Duisburg-Essen.
Andreas Stöhr received the Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering from Gerhard-Mercator-University Duisburg (GMUD), Germany, in 1991 and 1997, respectively. Since 1995 he is a staff member of the Optoelectronics Department at GMUD. In 1998 and 1999 he joined the Communications Research Laboratory (CRL), Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, Japan. His current research interests include the design and fabrication photonic components as well as microwave/millimeter-wave fiber-optic transmission systems and THz photonics. He has published more than 70 papers in refereed journals and conferences. Dr. Stöhr received the 1997 Annual Award from the Duisburger Universitätsgesellschaft (DUG). He has been a member of the Technical Program Committee and Organizing Committee for several international conferences. Dr. Stöhr is a member of the IEEE Laser and Electro-Optic (LEOS) and the Microwave Theory and Techniques Societies (MTT). He is further development chair of the IEEE German LEOS.
