The emergence of millimeter-wave technology exploiting unused frequency bands starting from 30 GHz opens new vistas for a plurality of application fields. TRITON will provide and co-integrate highly efficient gallium-nitride-on-silicon-carbide (GaN-on-SiC) and silicon-germanium (SiGe) electronics with silicon-on-insulator (SOI) photonics through a silicon interposer serving as versatile integration bench.


May 2017: Kick-Off Meeting at AMS in Unterpremstätten. TRITON has been launched.


Jun. 2017: First papers on a novel coherent-optical fronthaul transceiver concept accepted for publication at Optics Letters (Link) and ECOC'17 (Link).


Mar. 2018: TRITON publishes 4 papers at OFC, with the world's first coherent TO-can transceiver being top-ranked.
