The project aims to investigate various transmission issues for the emerging Terabit optical transport networks through mixture of theoretical analysis, computer simulation and experimental demonstration. The scope of the research encompasses study of ultra high-speed signal nonlinear propagation in dispersive fibre optic channel, coherent optical single-carrier and multi-carrier (or OFDM) performance comparison and advanced optical network functionalities.
