13 December 2014

Event organiser: 

OSA

 

Photonics – 2014, the 12th in the series of this biennial conference will cover a broad spectrum of photonics research from fibre optics to nanophotonics, materials for photonic devices, next-generation optical components and devices for optical networks. Special emphasis would be given to cutting-edge technologies in the area of metamaterials, plasmonics, quantum optics, guided wavephotonics, and mid-IR photonics.

Feature

Cost and compatibility can make a compelling case for pushing 100Gb/s bandwidth over a single optical channel, both as individual links and supporting 400Gb/s Ethernet, finds Andy Extance

Robin Mersh takes a look at how the industry is creating next-generation optical access fit for 5G

Feature

Technological advances to aid the increasing demand for bandwidth, on the path towards the terabit network, should lead to optical signals that are flexible and adaptive, like water, argues Dr Maxim Kuschnerov and Dr Yin Wang
