Title: Novel wideband optical switches for wideband systems
Overview: The PhD will investigate and design novel disaggregated WDM optical cross-connect switch architectures using integrated and miniaturized devices each to deliver switching at various granularities such as wavelength and band while supporting the wideband operation. The aim is to explore ways to deliver a modular pay as you grow architecture where sub-systems can be added/ removed/switched-off or re-arranged to handle services and traffic demands.
