FIRST plenary meeting at l’Aquila

It was great to meet again in person after so many months seeing each other online. FIRST partners met at l’Aquila on September 24th 2021. Despite the Covid-19 situation a lot of joint activities were carried out; we discussed the results obtained in these last 6 months. We are looking forward to have other in person meetings. #l’Aquila #FIRST #SDM #Photonics #passion4photonics

FIRST 3rd plenary meeting ONLINE

Unfortunately the pandemic situation forced again FIRST partners to join in an online meeting on February 5th 2021. Nevertheless it was a pleasure talking together. We discussed project activities performed in these last 4 months. We are looking forward to the time we will be able to meet in person. #l’Aquila #FIRST #SDM #Photonics #passion4photonics

FIRST at 5G Italy 2020

During CNIT LAB TALK at 5G Italy 2020, Cristian Antonelli (Università degli Studi dell’Aquila) presented the Laboratorio Nazionale di Fibre Ottiche Avanzate per Fotonica (L’Aquila) providing a little glimpse also on FIRST project.

FIRST project KoM

Politecnico di Milano hosted the #KoM of the #PRIN2017 project FIRST. Partners from the most prominent Italian optical communication research groups joined for the first time. We started the activities aimed at providing a revolutionary approach based on Space-division multiplexing #SDM on few-mode fibers (FMFs) and multi-core fibers (MCFs) deployed in L’Aquila. The results of #FIRST will provide the ultimate demonstration of SDM transmission, well out of reach of lab experiments relying on spooled fibers. #Photonics
