Roma Mercoledì 7 Dicembre 2016, ore 10:00 Dipartimento di Ingegneria, Aula DS1 Via Vito Volterra 62 nell’ambito dei corsi di Fotonica e Comunicazioni, il prof. Ivan Glesk (University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom) terrà il seminario Advancements towards all-optical signal processing in light of current IT challenges.
Abstract. It has been suggested that fundamental limits of electronic switching in today’s data centers relaying on bandwidth limited silicon devices have been reached and new technological solutions are required. It is believed that all-optical systems using photonic integrated circuits and highly scalable optical interconnects may provide needed improvements. We will overview some of key IT challenges, discuss possible solutions and demonstrate novel all-optical devices that may lend itself to the improved highly scalable interconnects based on optical code-division multiple-access.
