Organization profile

Highlighted phrase

Overcome the limitations imposed by the fibre’s attenuation, dispersion and non-linearities.

Organisational profile

We are pushing the limits towards multiple Perabit/s capacities. Key topics are Space-division multiplexing techniques employing novel multi-mode/core fibers, advanced signal modulation for improved spectral efficiency, dense wavelength multiplexing, compensation of (non-linear) fibre dispersion effects, robust coherent reception using digital signal processing, and single and multi-mode wideband optical amplification schemes.

Fingerprint Dive into the research topics where High Capacity Optical Transmission is active. These topic labels come from the works of this organisation's members. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
