Title:Making better optical fibers

Conventional optical fibres based on total internal reflection have enabled high-bandwidth digital communications and many other applications. However they are fundamentally unable to achieve some desirable performance characteristics. For example, they cannot transmit ultraviolet and mid-infrared light, or powerful short or ultrashort pulses. For these applications, optical fibres based on the use of a hollow core surrounded by microstructured silica can be much better. Over the last few years, a new family of hollow-core fibres based on the use of anti-resonances has emerged. We will review the basic physics and demonstrated performance of these novel fibres, and discuss their potential limitations and expected further performance gains.

Jonathan Knight is a Professor of Physics at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom. His research focuses on developing new forms of optical fibre, from concept through fabrication and characterisation to applications. 

Chao LU The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China
Title: High Capacity Optical Communication Systems: Challenges and Opportunities
Prof. Chao LU obtained his BEng in Electronic Engineering from Tsinghua University, China in 1985, and his MSc and PhD from University of Manchester in 1987 and 1990 respectively. He joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University(NTU), Singapore in 1991 and has been there as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer and Associate Professor until 2006. From June 2002 to December 2005, he was seconded to the Institute for Infocomm Research, Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore, as Program Director and Department Manager leading a research group in the area of optical communication and fibre devices. He joined Department of Electronic and Information Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University as Professor in 2006 and is Chair Professor of Fibre Optics there now. Over the years, he has published more than 300 papers in major international journals such as Optics Express, Optics Letters, IEEE Photonic Technology Letters and IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology. He has been organizer or technical program committee member of many international conferences. His current research interests are in the area of high capacity transmission techniques for long haul and short reach systems and distributed optical sensing systems. In addition to academic research work, he has had many industrial collaborative research projects and has a number of awarded patents. He currently serves as Associate Editor for Optics Express and is a fellow of the Optical Society (OSA).
