Do we need anything other than the C-band?

Do we need anything other than the C-band?
Single-mode silica fibers and erbium doped fiber amplifiers have been the cornerstone of optical communications for decades, but they are now approaching fundamental limits. This workshop aims to look well beyond the immediate short-term horizon and will discuss the need for and potential of more radically new forms of optical fibers and amplifiers.

The workshop will bring together fiber and amplifier end-users and manufacturers, glass scientists and network operators to exchange views on the projected requirements for future communications systems and on the anticipated capabilities of alternative fiber and amplifier technologies. Is a gradual evolution of the current technology still possible or is a revolution required at some point? Are there potentially breakthrough technologies that could enable radical cost savings and energy efficient capacity growth? What if not? Blue sky thinking will be actively encouraged.

Abstract

Single-mode silica fibers and erbium doped fiber amplifiers have been the cornerstone of optical communications for decades, but they are now approaching fundamental limits. This workshop aims to look well beyond the immediate short-term horizon and will discuss the need for and potential of more radically new forms of optical fibers and amplifiers.

The workshop will bring together fiber and amplifier end-users and manufacturers, glass scientists and network operators to exchange views on the projected requirements for future communications systems and on the anticipated capabilities of alternative fiber and amplifier technologies. Is a gradual evolution of the current technology still possible or is a revolution required at some point? Are there potentially breakthrough technologies that could enable radical cost savings and energy efficient capacity growth? What if not? Blue sky thinking will be actively encouraged.
