Zhe Li

Biography

Zhe Li received his B.Eng. degree in optical information science and technology from Jilin University, China, in 2011. The following September, he joined UCL to pursue an MSc in Wireless and Optical Communications. For his thesis he worked with Dr Benn Thomsen on exploiting the bandwidth potential of multimode optical fibres by using COMIMO technique.

In December 2013, Zhe joined the Optical Networks Group at UCL as an MPhil/PhD candidate. Under the supervision of Dr Robert Killey, he is currently investigating spectrally efficient and low-cost optical communication systems with direct detection.

Research Interests

Optical Duobinary, Nyquist-shaped Sub-carrier Modulation, Optical OFDM and DMT, Carrierless Amplitude and Phase (CAP) Modulation.

Project Title

Spectrally Efficient Low-cost Optical Links with Direct Detection
