Paper at ECOC 2012

On Monday, Rene Schmogrow will be presenting a collaborative paper at the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC 2012). This work was performed as a collaboration with Rene Schmogrow, Matthias Meyer, Phillipp Schindler, Wolfgang Freude, and Juerg Leuthold at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and with Rachid Bouziane, Polina Bayvel, and Robert Killey at University College London.

“Real-Time Digital Nyquist-WDM and OFDM Signal Generation: Spectral Efficiency versus DSP Complexity.” Rene Schmogrow, Rachid Bouziane, Matthias Meyer, Peter A. Milder, Philipp Schindler, Polina Bayvel, Robert Killey, Wolfgang Freude, and Juerg Leuthold.

Rene has been nominated for the Best Student Paper award for this work!

Abstract: We investigated the performance of Nyquist WDM and OFDM with respect to required DSP complexity. We demonstrate Nyquist pulse-shaping requiring less resources than IFFT-based OFDM for a similar performance. Tests are performed with QPSK/16QAM in a three-carrier WDM scenario.

Edit 9/20: Rene was one of two students awarded the Best Student Honorary Award for this work. Congratulations!
