Overall Objective

The overall objective of the FIREFLY project is the integration of nano-structured materials into 3-dimensional structured components that will be used for the efficient guiding of light in e.g. optical interconnects for data transmission, and the production process for making them.

The target applications are optical waveguides and photonic structures for the manipulation of light in, for example, optical interconnects on board level. The optical interconnects technology may be applied for data communication in computing systems as well as sensors and consumer-like applications such as multimedia devices.
