This project studies fundamental questions regarding data transmission in the nonlinear optical channel, including for example, the maximum amount of information that optical fibres can carry in the highly nonlinear regime.
The project studies multi-dimensional modulation formats to increase the capacity of optical communication systems based on an information-theoretic approach.
The project studies accurate channel models for the nonlinear optical channel in the high-power regime and novel coded modulation transceivers tailored to the nonlinear optical channel.
SILIKA is a European funded Marie Curie project that started September 1, 2016, with partners from Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands. Its main purpose is to train 12 young researchers (PhD students) to become experts in key technologies for future mobile telecommunication systems. Throughout the training programme, the PhD students will each work on an individual research topic that is of high relevance for the successful development of the next generation mobile telecommunication system (5G).
We are looking for enthusiastic candidates who are passionate to perform research in communication and information theory applied to fiber optical communication.
