O2: The Future of Coherent Optical Communication Systems

After 15 years in the digital coherent era of optical communication, what has been achieved and what remains to be done? Digital coherent communication has transformed the way that optical communication is being done and the way that systems are been designed. The key component of this technology is the Digital Signal Processing ASIC but it has also been a design changing factor for other devices, including lasers, modulators and receivers, and for fibers too.
First deployed in long-haul core networks, this technology rapidly made its way to submarine systems and to metro application; now, it is being considered for pluggable modules for IP routers, short reach applications and space communication.
This symposium will cover the evolution of technology and new areas of application for coherent optical communication. It will also cover constraints in DSP implementation, including power consumption and the impact progresses in CMOS process.

P1+P2: Photonic technologies towards attaining SDGs in Post-COVID Era

The importance of attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the United Nations as the heart of the 2030 Agenda, is becoming higher than ever, given the drastically changing society after COVID-19. This symposium discusses how the advanced photonic technologies can contribute towards solving these emerging global challenges and achieve SDGs in the post-COVID era. The topics include low-energy optical communication, computation, sensing, and bio-photonic technologies for constructing smart city infrastructures as well as safe, healthy, and resilient societies for all.
