Signal Processing in Photonic Communications (SPPCom)

Advanced Photonics for Communications

Signal Processing in Photonic Communications (SPPCom)

13 - 17 July 2014
Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa, San Diego, California, USA

SPPCom is focused on all aspects of optical and electronic signal processing for photonic communication systems ranging from on-chip communications to ultra-long haul transmission.

Signal processing is required in many types of photonic communication systems and networks - from on-chip data transfer to ultra-long haul transmission. As spectrally efficient modulation formats become more prevalent in these applications, advances in the requisite signal processing for transmitters and receivers are ever more important. This includes techniques for mitigating the effects of transmission impairments and non-ideal components/devices, key transmitter/receiver functions, forward error correction, and enabling technologies. Software defined networks, space division multiplexed systems, Tb/s superchannel systems, and broadband hybrid wireless-optical communication systems are of particular interest.

Topics Categories

  • Spectrally efficient modulation formats and detection schemes
  • Channel equalization and compensation
  • Polarization, clock, carrier, and phase recovery in coherent receivers
  • Channel estimation, distortion identification, and performance monitoring
  • Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM)
  • Nyquist and near-Nyquist signaling
  • Signal processing for space-division multiplexing
  • MIMO algorithms and implementations
  • Forward error correction
  • DAC, ADC and DSP technologies
  • DSP complexity and power consumption
  • All-optical techniques for wavelength conversion and translation, regeneration, correlation, and mitigation of transmission impairments
  • Real-time demonstration of high-speed electronic circuits and subsystems
  • Applications to access, metro, regional, long haul and ultra-long-haul networks
  • Applications to short-reach systems using single- and multi-mode fiber

General Session with Plenary Speakers
Monday, 14 July

Applications of Integrated Photonics Technology - From Optical Interconnects to Neurophotonics, Yurii Vlasov; IBM Research, USA
Abstract: The IBM Silicon Nanophotonics technology enables cost-efficient optical links that connect racks, modules, and chips together with ultra-low power single-die optical transceivers. I will give an overview of its historical development, technology differentiators, current status and a roadmap.
