This Topical Meeting is designed as a forum to discuss recent advances in optical communications. This includes, fundamental limits, components, measurement techniques, passive and active devices, fiber and propagation physics, digital signal processing, advanced modulation formats, quantum communication, systems and sub-systems, network, microwave photonics, radio-over-fibre as well as future trends and topics.

The impact of industry-driven research is also addressed as optical communication has been historically driven by industry.



Topics include (but are not limited to)

  • Fiber and propagation physics
  • Fundamental limits
  • Passive optical devices (couplers, filter, polarizers…)
  • Active optical devices (eg. Amplifiers)
  • Digital signal processing and Advanced modulation formats
  • Measurement techniques
  • Microwave Photonics
  • Spatial Division Multiplexing
  • Quantum communication
  • Optical Sub-systems
  • Optical Systems
  • Optical Networks
  • Free-space optical communications
