  2. Space Division Multiplexing with Multi-Core Fiber for Energy Efficient Integrated Photonic Networking Technologies

    SBC: ULTRA-LOW LOSS TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: G

    The trend for short-reach optical fiber communications, those used for data centers and HPC, has been to use simple and power-efficient approaches to scale bandwidth. Approaches include parallel single mode (ex. more fibers), multi-level modulation coupled with direct detection (ex. four-level pulse amplitude modulation or PAM-4), and wide channel spacing (i.e. coarse WDM or CWDM). Bandwidth and c ...

  10. A Miniature Probe for Instantaneous Aerosol Mobility Sizing

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 27b

    Atmospheric nucleation events inject large numbers of ultrafine particles into the air, some of which grow sufficiently large to affect the formation and characteristics of clouds. Yet widespread monitoring of these events is limited by the complexity, cost and size of available instrumentation. The miniature condensation particle counter of this project utilizes an innovative approach to measure ...
