On April 26th, Prof. Magnus Karlsson was invited by Prof. Songnian Fu to visit our school. He is from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. On April 27th, juniors of our school had an optical fiber communication technology class delivered in English by Prof. Magnus Karlsson. Apart from the pure English teaching, they further understood the study of the course. On April 28th, Prof. Magnus Karlsson gave us a report named Recent Chalmers FORCE-Center Activities on Communications and Parametric Processing. Teachers and students from relevant majors attended this forum with great passion, and they had a lively discussion with Prof. Magnus Karlsson in Q&A of the report.
Abstract: This presentation will review recent work in the fiber optic communications research center at Chalmers University (FORCE). It comprises transmission using phase sensitive amplifiers, studies on novel modulation formats and nonlinear mitigation for coherent long-haul links, transmission using phase sensitive amplifiers, and finally 4- and 8-PAM transmission in short-haul IM/DD-links up to 70 Gb/s.
Biography: Magnus Karlsson received his Ph.D. in 1994 and is since 2003 as Professor in photonics at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. He has authored or co-authored around 300 scientific journal and conference contributions, in the area of photonics and fiber optics. He is currently associate editor of Optics Express, has served in the technical program committee for the OFC and ECOC, and is currently active in the TPCs for the Asia Communications and Photonics Conference (ACP), ECOC, ICC and GLOBECOM. He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America. His current research interests comprise linear and nonlinear fiber transmission effects, and multilevel modulation in optical communication systems.
