MetroAerospace 2023 - Special session on Optical and Innovative Sensors for Aerospace

The Aerospace team that works inside PhotoNext has organized a Special session on "Optical and Innovative Sensors for Aerospace" in the  MetroAerospace 2023 Conference, which will be held in Milan on 2023, June 19-21.

This Session is perfectly superimposed with the PhotoNext research topics on Aerospace applications. Paolo Maggiore and Matteo Dalla Vedova are among the organizers, please contact them for further details.

A new paper of ours was published today in Optics Express!

A new paper of ours was published today in Optics Express (OPTICA Journal) on a possible solution for  future optical access network (for FTTH and Fronthauling on PON above 50 Gbit/s per lambda and in particular on  200G PON). This is another paper from the research group of mine that focuses on physical layer solutions for Passive Optical Networks.

Title:  "Analysis and experiments on C band 200G coherent PON based on Alamouti polarization-insensitive receivers"

Authors: Abir Hraghi, Giuseppe Rizzelli, Annachiara Pagano, Valter Ferrero and Roberto Gaudino

It is an open access paper, so you can read it “for free” :-) at this link.

Congratulations to all the co-authors!
