Optica Tech Talk: Link Design and Modeling for Intra Data Center Optical Interconnects

Tuesday, 08 March 14:00 – 14:30
Optica Booth, Exhibit Hall

The course will include in-depth coverage of signal propagation in multimode fibers (laser launch conditions, fiber DMD), effects of various signal dependent types of noise (mode partition noise, modal noise, relative intensity noise) and their impact on the link performance. We will include discussion of connector effects (mode mixing). We will also discuss the measurement methodologies used to specify the modern multimode fibers and sources operating at 850nm.

We will also discuss advanced modulation formats (PAM-4, DMT) and their applicability to short optical interconnects.
