Transceiver noise is major limit to maximising optical communication capacity

Created March 2, 2017

Why do lab results often fail to live up to simulations when determining the capacity of optical fibre? That is the question UNLOC researcher, Dr Lidia Galdino (from UCL’s Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, London) asked. She was surprised to discover that the devices used to transmit and receive optical signals – the transceivers – are more important than was previously thought, she concluded.
