Optoelectronics & Communications

UK workshop will address optical communication modulation formats

SPIE Newsroom
13 September 2011

The available bandwidth from optical fiber communications can be significantly extended with the use of advanced modulation formats. In many cases the techniques used are reapplied from those developed in RF communication. However delivering advanced modulation formats puts additional strain on both optical and electronic hardware. A technical workshop sponsored by SEPNET in the UK invites discussion of the current developments in optical modulation formats and associated supporting hardware, emerging developments, characterisation and measurement techniques and standards.

The event will take place on 29 September at the Centre for Nanoscience and Quantum Information at the University of Bristol (UK). It is supported by SPIE Europe, and is open to anyone researching, developing or advising on components, modules and systems for advanced optical communications.

SEPNET is a network in the south of England, supported by the Photonics Knowledge Transfer network. SEPNET directors are David Payne and Mike Philips. For registration and more information about the workshop or SEPNET, visit http://www.sepnet.net.
