Electrons meet Photons
Since 1998, the Institute of Optoelectronics belongs to the Centre for Semiconductor Technology and Optoelectronics and has access to a first class technical infrastructure, including a clean room with 470 square metres area. Beside several European projects, the Institute of Optoelectronics is involved in the Centre for NanoIntegration (CENIDE) and in the NanoEnergy Technologies Centre (NETZ).
Photonic-excited Integrated THz Beam Steering Antennas
Hetero-integrated InP-based THz antenna arrays chip have been fabricated and successfully employed for THz image scanner and mobile THz communications . The video shows beyond 5G wireless transmission with data rates in excess of 20 Gbit/s at 300 GHz carrier frequency and with steering angles of about 45°.

Radio technologies for 5G using Advanced Photonic Infrastructure for Dense user environments
At the beginning of the year, the European Union and Japanjointly had published a call for collaborative research projects in four specially selected technology areas. Within the four main priorities, only one project should be encouraged. University of Duisburg-Essen could prevail with its international partners in the subject "Access Networks for Densely Located User Areas".
