Lecture by Prof. Christophe Peucheret, University of Rennes 1, France.

Title: Integrated transmitters for short-reach optical links in the C- and O-bands


In this talk, I will first present the activities of the FOTON Institute and its Optical Communication Group. In a second part I will review some of our recent demonstrations of novel transmitter structures employing Si or III-V integration for inter data center links. We will in particular look at how the effect of group-velocity dispersion in the C-band can be circumvented in multi-(OFDM) and single-carrier (PAM4) modulation formats thanks to specially designed transmitter architectures.


Short bio:

Christophe Peucheret received the graduate engineering degree from Telecom Bretagne, Brest, France, the M.Sc. degree in microwaves and optoelectronics from University College London, London, U.K., and the Ph.D. degree from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Copenhagen, Denmark. He has been with the Department of Photonics Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark between 1997 and 2013. Since September 2013 he is with the FOTON Institute (Univ. Rennes, CNRS - UMR 6082), Lannion, France. His current research interests include the applications of silicon photonic devices to optical communication systems and interconnects.
