The key research areas of the Optical Communications Group (GCO) involve Optical Fiber Technologies, Raman Spectroscopy and High-Speed Networking. GCO experience is related to optical wavelength domain transport and access networks (WDM, HDWDM, SCM), broadband fiber transmission, sources and receivers, all-optical amplification, optical heterodyne detection, wavelength stabilization and monitoring, transparent WDM network architectures and management, optical linear and non-linear distortions, polarization/PMD treatment and network quality monitoring.

The main research areas are: 
  • Optical Networks and Technologies
  • Optical Access Networks
  • Raman Spectroscopy
