On January 6th, 2020, Dr. Bin CHEN [陈斌] of Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, and Hefei University of Technology [合肥工业大学] gave hold research talk Multidimensional Modulation Formats for High Speed Optical Communications [面向高速光通信的多维度调制技术] at 15:30 in our meeting room 920 in our office building 53 [合肥学院53 栋920]. Today, the internet is a vital part of the infrastructure and subject to an ever-rising demand for bandwidth, much of which is routed through optical-fiber based connections. In his highly interesting talk, Dr. Chen discussed the limits of this technology and how we can push them further. If our national and international network connectivity can keep growing and improving in the future, one of the reasons may well be the work of Dr. Chen, which won two best paper awards. Thanks for this great talk!
Optical fibers underpin our global information society and its use in data communication has experienced an astonishing evolution over the past four decades. Currently deployed commercial systems based on single-mode fibers can transmit data rates in excess of 10 Tb/s per fiber. The continuation of this dramatic growth in throughput has become constrained due to a power dependent nonlinear distortion arising from a phenomenon known as the Kerr effect. In this talk, we will introduce some efficient approaches to support flexible optical transmission links (flexible modulation formats, achieving different transmission rates to support different transmission reach).
