2015 Tyrrhenian International Workshop on Digital Communications (TIWDC)


  The quest for higher spectral efficiency and data rate made possible by coherent techniques has to face the problem of fiber nonlinearities. Today, any design based on advanced techniques requiring knowledge of the statistical properties of the received signal is carried on either by simply neglecting the ensuing of nonlinearities or on simplifying assumptions. Moreover, major conferences on optical communication are generally focused on technological rather than theoretical aspects. This workshop aims at laying special stress on in-depth theoretical investigation about the impact of fiber nonlinearities in coherent optical communication systems.

  Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  Channel modeling for nonlinear propagation in optical fibers

  Statistics of nonlinear optical data transmission

  Non-linear effects in WDM systems

  Signal-noise interaction

  Perturbation methods

  Volterra series
