This conference provides a forum to present the latest advances in technology and product developments in next-generation optical communication including coherent, space- and mode-division multiplexed optical transmission systems. The conference program encompasses components and subsystems related to next-generation optical communication technology as well as coherent, ultra-wide band, space- and mode-division multiplexed optical communication systems. Early-stage concepts and controversial solutions are also welcome and encouraged.

We particularly invite students to submit their thesis work to this conference. Students who are first authors will be eligible for the Optical Communications Best Student Paper Awards.

Topics for the conference include but are not limited to:

Optical Communications Best Paper Awards

We are pleased to announce Best Paper Awards in Optical Communications, sponsored by Corning and NTT Electronics. These awards will recognize the outstanding work of students and professionals who present the most notable recent results with broad impact in the area of optical communications. Qualifying papers will be evaluated by the awards committee. Manuscripts will be judged based on technical merit, impact, and clarity. The winners will be announced immediately following the Optical Communications Joint Keynote Session, and the presenting authors will be awarded a certificate and cash prize.

To be eligible for the Best Student Paper Award, you must:
  • be a student without a doctoral degree (undergraduate, graduate, or PhD student)
  • be listed as an author on an accepted paper within conferences OE801, OE802, or OE803
  • have conducted the majority of the work to be presented
  • submit your manuscript online by 29 December 2021
  • present your paper as scheduled
  • be present at the Awards Ceremony.
To be eligible for the Best Technical Paper Award, you must:
  • be a post-doc or early career professional
  • be listed as an author on an accepted paper within conferences OE801, OE802, or OE803
  • have conducted the majority of the work to be presented
  • submit your manuscript online by 29 December 2021
  • present your paper as scheduled
  • be present at the Awards Ceremony.
How to Apply: After your Manuscript is submitted online (by 29 December 2021), send an email to nasfine@stny.rr.com by Monday 3 January 2022, stating your desire to be considered, and for which award you qualify.

In our work, we propose two methods where we have successfully quantified the Rayleigh and SALS contribution to the DMA and total loss of each mode of two weakly coupled FMFs with different index profiles (step and trapezoidal) supporting 6-LP modes, without knowledge of the dopants or the fabrication process. One by analyzing the angular distribution of the light scattering of each mode of the fibers, and another based on a theoretical approach where we spliced the two fibers and performed bidirectional OTDR measurements at several wavelengths to compare the Rayleigh scattering of the same mode propagating in different FMFs.
Session 2: Short Reach and Optical Devices

We describe multi Gb/s NRZ modulation of LEDs at low current densities (~30A/cm^2). These structures exhibit extremely short carrier lifetime, but with high radiative efficiency. Coupled to large lateral silicon photodetectors, one can obtain high speed optical lanes in a very simple and low-cost topology over a large environmental temperature range of -40C to 150C.

Raytheon Intelligence & Space (RIS) in El Segundo, CA is currently developing photonic integrated circuit devices for the improved efficiency of photonics-based optical phased arrays (OPAs). The OPAs will serve as coherent transmit and receive terminals for high data rate, high bandwidth, free-space laser communication. Devices under development include spiral delay lines, multi-node nano-antenna transmit/receive elements, improved fill factor nano-antenna fields as well as unique OPA architectures. The goal of this design effort is to improve the data rate/scalability and range of OPA laser communication systems. This paper presents device design characteristics, predicted performance and experimental results from fabricated devices.

An underwater optical wireless sensor network prototype consisting of two sensor nodes and an optical hub is developed for the first time to implement real-time underwater environmental monitoring in this work. In a laboratory testbed and a field trial conducted in an outdoor diving pool, the sensor nodes can transmit the collected information (temperature, salinity, conductivity and pH) to the base station through the optical hub with 100% packet success rates over a transmission distance of 60 cm. This work is the first step toward the future implementation of real-time underwater mobile sensor networks and the underwater Internet of Things.

How can we address the increased demand to higher baud rates and scale in volume while driving the costs down? We need combinations of technologies to cope with these challenges, what are the sweet spots for each and where do they meet. How to combine the best of both worlds? Join us as we explore this and dive deep into other issues surrounding this question.
