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.
