Next generation lasers for short-reach optical fibre communication (2019–2022)

Abstract:
This Project aims to develop next-generation laser systems for multimode fibre optic communication systems by leveraging recently developed techniques for measuring and controlling the spatial properties of light. These techniques could provide new insights into the physics of the lasers themselves, as well as overcoming fundamental limitations which have traditionally hindered operation at high speed. Expected outcomes of this Project would be inclusion of these techniques in the development and operation of future generations of fibre communication systems. Creating new classes of laser systems which scale to large bit rates and enable the historical growth in this area to be sustained into the future.
