Signal Processing in Photonics Communications

Signal Processing in Photonics Communications

24 - 27 July 2017
Astor Crowne Plaza, New Orleans, Louisiana United States

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. SPPComm covers advances in signal processing for transmitters and receivers, including techniques for mitigating the effects of transmission impairments and non-ideal components/devices, key transmitter/receiver functions, forward error correction, and enabling technologies. SPPComm also includes software-defined networks, space division multiplexed systems, Tb/s superchannel systems, and broadband hybrid wireless-optical communication systems.

Student & Early Career Professional Development & Networking Lunch and Learn

Tuesday, 25 July, 12:30 - 14:00
Toulouse A

Join us for an interactive lunch and learn program focused on professional development within the Advanced Photonics field. This program will engage students and early career professionals with the key leaders in the field who will share their professional development journey and provide useful tips to those who attend. Lunch will be provided.

Programs are open to OSA Members. There is limited space and we ask that you RSVP to attend.

Emerging Optical Materials: Perovskites, 2D Optical Materials and Nanocolloids

Wednesday, 26 July, 12:30 – 14:00
St Charles B
Join the OSA Optical Material Studies Technical Group for a panel discussion exploring new and emerging optical materials. The panel will feature Dr. Barry Rand of Princeton University, Dr. Christian Klinke from the University of Hamburg, Dr. Parag Deotar from the University of Michigan, and Dr. García de Arquer from the University of Toronto. Each panelist will give a five minute talk highlighting the progress and challenges of their respective areas. Following their talks Dr. Garo Khanarian, who serves as chair of the Optical Material Studies Technical Group, will lead a discussion bringing together the different topics and opening the conversation to participation from attendees. An RSVP is required for this technical group event as lunch will be provided. Contact to register, pending availability.
