As capacity demands in optical communications continues to increase, and with standard single mode optical fibres (SMF) still prevailing as the main communications channel, techniques to maximise the spectral efficiency of SMF's available bandwidth are now moving from research to implementation. While DSP and higher order modulation formats are becoming widely available commercially, in particular for 400G-600G approaches, Tb/s capacities per transponder are likely to be achieved with multi-carrier schemes. In this talk, we will review the need for multi-carrier coherent transmitters, what they are and show potential configurations, discuss how to overcome foreseenble challenges, and especulate when this technology will be potentially ready.
Dr Gunning is a Senior Staff researcher and Head of Graduate Studies at Tyndall National Institute, and Senior Research Fellow at the Physics Department, University College Cork, Ireland. She worked previously at Corning Research Centre in UK, had several internships at British Telecom at Adastral Park in UK, and holds a Master and PhD degrees in Physics from Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She was part of the team pioneering on Optical Coherent Wavelength Division Multiplexing (also known as “superchannels” or coherent transmitters) at Tyndall. Her current research focus on the development novel devices for high capacity systems at 1.5 and 2 microns wavelengths, and on incorporating adaptive physical layer solutions with Software Defined Networks for network efficiency, control and management. Dr Gunning collaborates closely with Tyndall’s semiconductor devices team on the next generation of integrated photonic devices, and incorporates high-speed testing at chip level in the lab. She also volunteers and leads initiatives to promote , and in particular efforts to increase gender representation in Physics and Engineering at all levels. She’s the acting chair for Empowering Women Committee @ Tyndall, participates in UCC’s Athena Swan focus groups, champions Tyndall’s Centre of Integrated Photonics (IPIC) gender action plan and the IEEE Photonics Society as AVP for Multicultural Outreach.
