Description

The rapid increase in data traffic in the past years and traffic forecasts will lead to capacity exhaust in the optical fibre communications infrastructure which carries over 95% of all data services. Nonlinear effects and dispersion during fibre transmission lead to distortions, limiting both achievable capacities, spectral efficiencies and distances. COIN investigates nonlinear coding and detection, tailored to the nonlinear channel to dramatically improve the data throughput of future optical networks.
