Emerging fibre technology for the petabit/s era

Emerging fibre technology for the petabit/s era
For the past 30 years communications research has focused on finding innovative ways of coding and multiplexing optical signals to unlock the maximum practical ~100Tbit/s/ capacity provided by single-mode optical fibre. However, cost-effective future scaling of network capacity may ultimately benefit from fibre solutions that can exploit multiple spatial modes within a single multimode-core, and/or multiple cores incorporated within the fibre cross-section to increase the per-fibre capacity. In this talk I will review progress towards realizing these new fibre types (along with the key component/subsystems required) and describe the necessary requirements for ultimate commercial deployment.

Abstract

For the past 30 years communications research has focused on finding innovative ways of coding and multiplexing optical signals to unlock the maximum practical ~100Tbit/s/ capacity provided by single-mode optical fibre. However, cost-effective future scaling of network capacity may ultimately benefit from fibre solutions that can exploit multiple spatial modes within a single multimode-core, and/or multiple cores incorporated within the fibre cross-section to increase the per-fibre capacity. In this talk I will review progress towards realizing these new fibre types (along with the key component/subsystems required) and describe the necessary requirements for ultimate commercial deployment.
