IM/DD and Coherent Optical Fiber Transmission Systems: Challenges and Opportunities

Thursday, August 17, 2023 @ 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

The insatiable growth of datacenter traffic mandates increasing the capacity of cost-effective transceiver technologies to meet the foreseen demand. Competing configurations include Intensity Modulation / Direct Detection (IM/DD) and coherent transceiver architectures. In this presentation we will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with these two options including such topics as: wavelength, reach modulation format, modulator technology, and power consumption. In partnership with the (https://nrc.canada.ca/en/research-development/research-collaboration/programs/high-throughput-secure-networks-challenge-program)Challenge program at National Research Council (NRC), we invite you to join this virtual seminar series to promote scientific information sharing, discussions, and interactions between researchers. —- Résumé : La croissance insatiable du trafic dans les centres de données exige l’augmentation de la capacité des technologies d’émetteurs-récepteurs rentables pour répondre à la demande prévue. Les configurations concurrentes comprennent la modulation d’intensité/détection directe (IM/DD) et les architectures d’émetteurs-récepteurs cohérents. Dans cette présentation, nous discuterons des défis et des opportunités associés à ces deux options, y compris des sujets tels que la longueur d’onde, le format de modulation de la portée, la technologie du modulateur et la consommation d’énergie.
