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.
It is a great pleasure to share our novel book chapter entitled "Glass and Glass–Ceramic Photonic Materials for Sensors"!!!! The chapter is part of the PoliTO Springer Series "Ceramics, Glass and Glass-Ceramics" edited by F. Baino, M. Tomalino, and D. Tulyaganov. More info at this link!
Two papers from PhotoNext have recently been published on IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology. They are both addressing future ultra-high capacity transmission in data centers and in access. You can find more info at these links:

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.

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.
