ECOC 2019: Post-Deadline paper on Hollow-Core Fiber transmission experiment


The OptCom Group, in collaboration with Southampton University, the Links Foundation and CISCO Photonics, has been awarded a prestigious Post-Deadline paper presentation at ECOC 2019 (PD.1.5). The paper reports on a breakthrough and record-setting transmission experiment on the revolutionary “hollow-core” fiber that Optoelectronics Research Center of Southampton has recently fabricated. This fiber holds the promise for increasing the capacity vs. standard fiber by a factor of up to ten, or more. The paper will be presented by Pierluigi Poggiolini on Thursday, Sept. 26th. The presentation will be available for download from this site.
