Optical Communications Laboratory

optics and photonics Welcome to the 
Optical Communications Laboratory (OCL)

We investigate components and systems for optical communications. Current research includes investigation of silicon photonics components, coherent optical communications and radio over fiber systems. We optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) systems for passive optical networks, packet-switched networks with OCDMA-based labels, smart Radio over Fiber systems for spectrally efficient wireless local area networks, optical processing for ultrawide band (UWB) signals, and modeling of semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA) dynamics for burst metro area networks.
