  •  NEWS   MERL researchers presented 1 workshop talk as a panelist and 2 papers at ECOC 2017, including one invited talk.
  • Date:

    September 17, 2017 - September 21, 2017

  • Description:

    Two papers from the Optical Communications team were presented at the 2017 European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) held in Gothenburg, Sweden in September 2017. The papers relate to enhanced error correction coding for coherent optical links and advanced precoding for optical data center networks. The invited paper studied irregular polar coding to reduce computational complexity, decoding latency, and bit error rate at the same time. In addition to two papers, the team member was invited to talk about constellation shaping as a workshop panelist.
