Zhixin Liu, UCL EEE

Research Interests

    My research aims at investigating optical components and subsystems for enabling larger data transmission capacities with a simultaneous reduction in power consumption and system complexity. My research interests include:
  • Optical transmitters for short and medium reach optical communication systems
  • Digital and analog signal processing for low latency and power-aware optical communications
  • Analysis and characterization of laser dynamics for generation of high-fidelity signals
  • Applications of optical signal processing, photonic integration, and special fibre

  • We are looking for PhDs interested in optical communications and photonics subsystem and devices. Please contact me with a CV and a few lines about your research interests.

    PhD oppotunity

    The Optical Networks Group at UCL EEE is looking for talented candidates to conduct PhD research in the areas of optical transmitters and signal generation. An interested candidate should send the CV (including GPA, ranking, publications, working papers), academic transcript to Prof. Zhixin Liu before Monday 11 December 2017. Applicants are encouraged to write a brief summary of research interests (max 200 words) to describe how his/her background fits the PhD projects. New ideas relevant to the research field are welcome.

    Dr Liu published postdeadeline paper in OFC2017

    In standard optical fibre, light pulses that carry data travel through a glass core. In contrast to standard fibre that guides light by total reflection, hollow core fibre guides light in an air core and comes in two fundamentally different guidance mechanisms.
    Lead by Dr Zhixin Liu, researchers at ULC and the ORC at Southampton University have contributed to a new record data transmission 6.8Tbit/s in a type of fibre called antiresonant hollow core fibre. Click here for detail press release
