Breakthroughs in the latest optical and digital techniques
Transatlantic cables and optical fibre communications.
The head of the ONG group and director of the EPSRC-funded UNLOC programme will become an elected fellow of the Royal Society at a formal ceremony in July.
Domanic Lavery, a senior research associate with UNLOC has been awarded a 5-year Research Fellowship from the Royal Academy of Engineering.
ONG researchers are invited to lead a masterclass on extending the capacity and reach of transoceanic optical communication systems at the SubOptic 2016 conference taking place between April 18-22 in Dubai.
Members of the Optical Networks Group are heading to the largest conference on optical fibre communications taking place next week in the USA to present latest research results and share their leading expertise in nonlinear fibre systems with the global telecommunications community.
UNLOC director, Prof. Polina Bayvel joined a selection of recognised scientists and engineering at the RISE Connect event organised by the EPSRC.
Researchers from Aston University and the Optical Networks Group in University College London working on the UNLOC project confirmed experimentally that a laser-based technique first proposed in the 70s can be successfully applied in long distance fibre communications systems to significantly increase their capacity and reach.
The cost of deploying fast fibre connections straight to homes could be dramatically reduced by new hardware designed and tested by UCL researchers.
new record for the fastest ever data rate for digital information has been set by UCL researchers in the Optical Networks Group. They achieved a rate of 1.125 Tb/s as part of research on the capacity limits of optical transmission systems, designed to address the growing demand for fast data rates.
Senior research associate in the ONG, Alex Alvarado joined the editorial board of IEEE Transactions on Communications.
Prof. Seb Savory joins Churchill College in Cambridge University after 10 wonderful years with the Optical Networks Group
Prof. Polina Bayvel, head of ONG named among top ten women in communications/networking we should all know
Polina Bayvel was selected among "10 women in networking/communications that we should know" for her research contributions in the field of optical networks.
ONG research fellow Tianhua Xu who is currently working for the UNLOC project was invited to present at a workshop during the Asia Communications and Photonics Conference in Hong Kong
ONG research student Sezer Erkilinc was awarded the runner-up prize for Best Student Paper at ECOC 2015.
An paper published in the Journal of Lightwave Technology by ONG members working on the UNLOC project has been ranked 23rd in the most frequently downloaded articles during July on the IEEE Xplore website.
ONG research student Sezer Erkilinc has been awarded 2015 IEEE Photonics Society Graduate Student Fellowship.
Six members of the Optical Networks Group have been awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering's Colin Campbell Mitchell Award.
ONG researcher Dr Robert Maher has recently become a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
The Optical Networks Group will be bringing its research to the general public over the bank holiday weekend, showcasing a variety of hands-on demonstrations as part of the On Light festival.
