PhD studentship in optical communications 2023 February 3

One PhD studentships is available for work in the area of optical communications in support of 6G networks. This research will explore how optical access and metro networks can support next generation 6G services. More specifically, it will investigate novel transmission systems, mostly based on Radio-over-Fibre to support the higher capacity requirements, but over highly heterogeneous network architectures. A key investigation will be the coexistence of RoF signals across access and metro networks. Indeed, in order to provide ubiquitous, flexible access, at low cost (which is necessary to enable densification) the high-capacity RoF signals will need to be routed across a highly heterogeneous network, which could consist of standard PONs, enhanced mesh-PON architectures, filter-less node architectures and transparent integration with metro networks. The position will be based both in Trinity College Dublin and Dublin City University. The position will be under the direction of Prof.Marco Ruffini <> and Prof. Liam Barry
