R&D Activities

Eulambia's team is constantly trying to push the boundaries of existing technology. In order to offer evolutionary products and services we never stop to research new ideas and try to bring them to life.

Physical Unclonable Functions (PUF)

Optical Physical Unclonable Functions (o-PUF) comprise physical systems whose response resides on a complex, non reversible transfer function. The hardware device is resilient to physical cloning and machine learning attacks whereas response generation remains a deterministic process. Therefore, o-PUFs are unclonable-secure hardware modules able to:

  • generate random numbers on demand alleviating the need for secure storage.
  • provide user/device authentication
  • generate cryptographic keys, compatible with state-of-the-art protocols
  • generate seeds for pseudo-random generators

 

Eulambia's patented technology provide a secure low-cost o-PUF module that:

  • surpasses the performance of existing PUF solutions in terms of probability of physical cloning.
  • produces random keys compatible with strict international standards (NIST-DIEHARD).
  • is fully customisable in terms of size, random number generation rate and type of interface.
True Random Number Generation

Eulambia's key engineers have a long successful history in envisioning and implementing novel optical techniques for true random generation.

Physical mechanisms like: optical chaotic carriers and synchronisation events in large scale optical networks have been exploited so as to achieve optical true random number generation.

 

Through Eulambia's industrial experience these academic concepts have achieved a technological maturity and custom photonic solution can be delivered able to provide:

  • Random number sequences fully compatible with international standards (NIST, DIEHARD)
  • Generation rate at multi tens of Gb/s.
Secure Optical Communication

Eulambia's members have a solid academic background in envisioning and implementing new concepts in the field of secure optical communications.
The area of application of these concepts extend from the physical layer up to the application layer, thus providing a holistic approach regarding network security. Physical mechanisms like: optical chaotic carriers and synchronisation events in large scale optical networks, photonic physical unclonable functions have been exploited so as to achieve:

  • True random number generation with multi Gbps rates.
  • Unclonable hardware pseudo-random number generators for authentication and encryption
  • High bit-rate chaotic cryptography
  • Intrusion resilient optical networks

Through Eulambia's industrial experience these academic concepts have achieved a technological maturity and custom photonic solution can be delivered for a wide range of applications.

UV Exposure Measurement Device

UV exposure measurement device for biological applications:

  • Instantaneous and cumulative measurement of UV-A and UV-B irradiation
  • Calculation of the maximum allowed dose by measuring the biological substrate (e.g. skin)
  • Wireless communication with mobile platforms (e.g. smartphones)
  • Monitoring software applications
Ice Detection for Aerospace Applications

Photonic, miniaturised sensors based on off-the-shelf components, including signal processing and wired/wireless communication subsystems capable of detecting ice accretion on airfoils.

  • Discrimination between water and ice surfaces
  • Detection of thin ice layer for immediate alert
  • Detection of ice thickness from tens of microns to 2cm
  • Detection and discrimination between different ice types (glazed, rime and mixed)
Smart Cities – Infrastructure Surveillance

The last years optical networks have expanded from the backbone of the telecomm infrastructure and have rapidly infiltrate the access network. This geographical expansion of optical networks combined with the vast offered bandwidth, can enable seamlessly integrating and interconnecting optical sensors in the telecomm infrastructure. These optical sensor modules can be exploited so as to monitor critical parameters, such as temperature, water level, structural integrity and traffic.

 

Eulambia's long standing experience in the development of custom optical sensing modules comprise:

  • Fiber bragg grating sensors
  • Interferometric fiber sensors
  • Optical back-scattering sensors

Alongside the in-house developed fast interrogation units and the proper communication control and acquisition software allow the development of accurate, easy-to-use and durable sensing modules that can be deployed easily in existing infrastructures.
