:Metro network capacity increase via innovative photonic technologies and communication systemsAbstract:
The PhD research project places in the context of the European project H2020 PASSION (Photonic technologies for progrAmmable transmission and switching modular systems based on Scalable Spectrum/space aggregation for future agIle high capacity metrO Networks). The activity is aimed at increasing the capacity of optical fiber metropolitan area networks (beyond Tb/s per channel), reducing the energy consumption and the complexity of the system significantly. To achieve this result, new photonic technologies developed during the project will be tested together with the exploitation of complex modulation formats and multiplexing techniques based on space and polarization.
