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.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
