Welcome to Optical Communications
Research Group

The appeal of the optical medium for communications, its tremendous bandwidth, is only fully exploitable through multiplexing of many signals, in time, wavelength, or other domain. Our research explores the use of signal processing, communication theory, and optical techniques in designing high capacity optical multiuser/multichannel systems and networks. Topics of current interest include:

Visible light communication systems (Publications)

Advanced modulation and coding for optical communication systems (Publications)

Cross-layer design and optimization of optical networks (Publications)

Ultraviolet non-line-of-sight communications (Publications)

FSO and hybrid RF/FSO networks and communications (Publications)

Fiber-optic channel characterization (Publications)

Signal Processing for optical communication systems (Publications)
