EVENT

OSA Advanced Photonics Congress

27 June 2015

Event organiser: 

Optical Society of America (OSA)

 

Advanced Photonics convers multiple aspects of optical data transfer and its technologies, from photonic integrated circuit design, fabrication and performance, advances in component design and performance, optical interconnects, switching and storage, optical computing, data and information processing. It also covers the network design and the control, implementation and processing needed to mitigate system impairments and optimise network and link performance.

Participating topical meetings include:

Feature

As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance

Feature

Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move

Feature

Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby

Feature

With demand for fibre to the premises increasing, Keely Portway looks at the role training plays in ensuring installation skills remain available to meet this growing demand
