Zhe Li wins Corning Outstanding Paper at OFC 2017

The Corning Outstanding Student Paper is awarded to a student presenting at OFC who has demonstrated innovation, research excellence and presentation abilities in optical communications.

Zhe had two papers accepted to OFC 2017, both focusing on reducing complexity to speed up inter-city data connections. You can read more about Zhe's recent work in our round-up of contributions to OFC 2017.

One of Zhe's papers was also listed as a top scored paper at this year's conference, "Tu3I.4 - 112 Gb/s/λ WDM Direct-Detection Nyquist-SCM Transmission at 3.15 (b/s)/Hz Over 240 km SSMF Enabled by Novel Beating Interference Compensation".

2017 represents the 10th year of the competition, which is held at the world's largest optical fibre communications conference (OFC). Corning, the award sponsors, are one of the world's leading optical fibre manufacturers.
