Information and Communication Theory Lab


On June 19, 2019, Arie Koppelaar gave an invited talk about “Challenges in Digital Radio Broadcast reception”.


We are an academic research group in the Signal Processing Systems Group (Department of Electrical Engineering) at Eindhoven University of Technology in The Netherlands. Our main research interest is in information and communication theory, and its applications. Our mission is to study information processing in a broad sense…


In 1972 J.P.M. (Piet) Schalkwijk was appointed as full professor in the field of Information Theory in the Electrical Engineering Department at Eindhoven University of Technology. Together with his staff (Joop de Brouwer, Jan Rooijackers, and Han Vinck) Piet Schalkwijk founded the Informatie en Communicatietheorie Group (EI)…

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.

Read more

The project studies multi-dimensional modulation formats to increase the capacity of optical communication systems based on an information-theoretic approach.

Read more

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.
