Optical Networks Group


The Optical Networks Group (ONG) group studies optical communications, operating on all time and length scales. We are interested in all linear and nonlinear phenomena related to the propagation of optical signals in different media, including different types of fibres and free-space.

Our current research is focused on:

  • Network Architectures: wide-area, access & interconnects
  • Network Routing and Control: adaptive, dynamic & intelligent
  • High-speed Transmission Systems: use of advanced modulation formats, optimised detection and digital signal processing to increase system and network capacity in a variety of fibre types

Our current projects include:
