Current Research Fields

Coding and modulation are basic components of a digital communication system. The increasing demand for higher transmission speeds keeps the field of coding theory vibrant. Codes have become essential for data links where they were originally thought to be unnecessary. [more]

Coding for relaying and networks refers to methods and algorithms that network nodes use to process symbol streams so as to optimize communication efficiency, reliability, and security. [more]

Coooperative communications refers to network communication where nodes cooperate, rather than compete, to transmit data for themselves and others. [more]

Information theory is the mathematics that deals with the coding problems to achieve efficient, reilable and secure communication. Multi-user information theory applies these approaches to networks. [more]

Our modern, information-based world would not be conceivable without the tremendous achievements in optical communications over Single Mode Fibers of the last three decades. Nevertheless, the ever increasing demand for bandwidth requires continuing extension of the transmission capacity of optical communication systems. [more]

Optical fiber carries the bulk of the world's data traffic through long, thin strands of glass. Despite their great importance, the capacity of fiber-optic channels seems difficult to compute because the standard model, the generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation (GNLSE), seems difficult to understand. [more]

For inhouse-communication or data-transfer in planes or vehicles, Polymer Optical Fibers are an efficient alternative to copper, or silica fibers. [more]
