Two new papers accepted today on IEEE/OPTICA Journal of Lightwave Technology

A very nice coincidence! Today, two new papers of ours were accepted today on IEEE/OPTICA Journal of Lightwave Technology.

They are both on next-generation short-reach solutions, and in particular on ultra-high speed passive optical networks (PON) for FTTH and on intra-data center ultra-high capacity links.

Photonext Seminar by Dr. Riccardo Piccoli: Nonlinear phenomena in gas-filled hollow-core fibers

High-energy ultrashort optical pulses have opened new avenues in the investigation of ultrafast and strong-field-driven phenomena. However, the direct generation of such pulses, from visible to terahertz (THz) frequencies, is still very challenging and requires broadband spectra not directly available from common laser gain media. In this seminar, we will see how gas-filled hollow-core fiberscan be successfully employed in a vast variety of situations including extreme pulse broadening and compression, ultrabroadband THz generation, and extreme Raman red-shift.

PhD Course: “Photonext: Hands-on course on Photonics for Fiber Transmission”: 2021 Edition

The 2021 edition of the PhD Course: “Photonext: Hands-on course on Photonics for Fiber Transmission” will ultimately take place! It was not easy, but we manage to find a way to have LIVE experimental session in each of the three weeks of the course.

The students will be guided through three different sets of experiments involving optical fiber systems. You can find further information iby clicking on the title of this news.

Biennale Tecnologia - Politecnico Aperto

PhotoNext will participate to the POLITO dissemination event Biennale Tecnologia - Politecnico Aperto with a live online presentation on the current trends in Applied Photonics.

Stay tuned and... please follow this link for further information!

The event will be in Italian, here is the program: 

Titolo: Fotonica: la “luce” applicata all’Industria 4.0, alle telecomunicazioni, all’ambiente e alla medicina

Descrizione: Un percorso alla “scoperta della luce” attraverso una presentazione in aula con demo dal vivo. I visitatori potranno seguire dimostrazioni sperimentali alla scoperta della fotonica, una tecnologia alla base delle recenti rivoluzioni nella manifattura industriale (lavorazioni con laser), nelle telecomunicazioni (reti ad altissima velocità), nella medicina (chirurgia laser, diagnostica personalizzata) e nel monitoraggio civile e ambientale (sensori integrati nelle strutture).

October-November 2020

PhotoNext Dissemination event "Esperto in Classe - Biennale Tecnologia"

The PhotoNext center is actively participating in the dissemination events organized by POLITO under the initiative "Biennale Tecnologia - Esperto in Classe". You can see the details at the following link:

Our researchers, together with the POLITO OSA student Chapter, will visit four High Schools, with an interactive lesson on digital transmission over optical fibers.
