Who we are

PhosNet Research GroupPhotonic Systems and Networks (PhosNET) Research Group was established in 2008 as part of the Computer Architecture and Communications Laboratory (CACLab) of the Department of Informatics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Our main research mission extends along the utilization of photonics in all aspects of optical communications and networking aiming at the development of high throughput, high-rate and low energy communication environments. PhosNET has worldwide links and collaborations with other top research institutes and industrial research organizations and its activities are supported by industrial grants, national and EU funded research programs.

What we do


PhosNET research activities involve all aspects of optical communications and networks extending from circuit design to system-level experimental demonstrations and up to network architectures and protocols. Its main research areas are:

  • Optical Interconnects
  • Optical Buffering and Optical RAM
  • Optical Access and Radio-over-Fiber Networks
  • Optical Signal Processing for Data Routing and Switching
  • Secure Optical COmmunication Systems using Chaos
  • Biophotonics
