Fiber Optics Lab
The lab performs inter-disciplinary research on communications, electronics, and optics. Some projects also require the interaction with researchers in computer engineering, math, and chemistry. The research areas are listed below:
Optical networks including automatically-switched optical networks (ASON) and optical transport network (OTN), next-generation packet networks, optical label and packet switching, multicasting and multi-granularity issues in optical networks.
Optical transmission including high-speed large-capacity systems, optical access systems, free-space optical communications, and optical wireless systems.
Opto-electronics covering passive and active components, integrated optical devices, modules and subsystems based on new materials and processes.
Information photonics including quantum communications and cryptography, signal processing, photonic crystal and fibers, nano-photonics, self-spinning opto-electronics, ultra-fast optics and optical sensing.
Software and hardware in optical networks, including design, implementation, and testing of communication protocols, network management, embedded systems, and programmable logic devices and circuits.
