Optical Fiber Communications Systems : Theory a...



Candidates must have a strong background in optical communications and experience in system design, algorithm development, and simulation of fiber optical communication systems. In addition, the following skills and experiences are highly desirable:


Dispersion compensation was originally proposed to equalize pulse distortion. With the development of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) techniques for large capacity optical communication systems, dispersion compensation technologies have been applied into the field. Fiber-based dispersion compensation is an attractive technology for upgrading WDM communication systems because of its dispersion characteristics and good compatibility with transmission optical fibers. Dispersion compensation fibers and the modules are promising technologies, so they have been receiving more and more attention in recent years.


In this work, high performance dispersion compensation fiber modules (DCFMs) were developed and applied for the 40 Giga bit-rate systems. First, the design optimization of the dispersion optical fibers was carried out. In theory, the better the refractive index profile is, the larger the negative dispersion we could obtain and the higher the figure of merit (FOM) for the dispersion optical fiber is. Then we manufactured the fiber by using the plasma chemical vapor deposition (PCVD) process of independent intellectual property rights, and a high performance dispersion optical fiber was fabricated. Dispersion compensation fiber modules are made with the dispersion compensating fibers (DCFs) and pigtail fibers at both ends of the DCFs to connect with the transmission fibers.

This course will introduce quantum mechanics from the perspective of quantum information science and engineering, focusing on two-level systems and the concepts of entanglement and decoherence. It will educate students on how quantum information can be used in quantum communication and quantum computing, both in theory and experiment. The course covers basic concepts such as two-level systems, Schroedinger equation, Bloch sphere, superposition, entanglement, quantum bits, quantum gates, Bells inequalities, and mixed states. Covering these basic concepts prepare the students for more advanced courses in the minor where they learn in depth about quantum algorithms, physical implementation of different quantum systems, and how to compute with existing quantum computers.


Transient response, frequency response, Bode plots, resonance, filters, Laplace transform, Fourier series and transform, discrete-time signals/ systems; sampling z-transform. E E 352 Signals and Systems (4) E E 352 is a course designed to study the characteristics of continuous and discrete time linear systems. These include signal and power input/output relationships in both domains, impulse responses, and the differential equations that describe these systems. Convolution is an essential component of any linear systems course, therefore several classes will be devoted to this topic in order that students fully understand the concept. Fourier series is used to determine the spectral content of periodic signals thus illustrating how a signal is distributed in frequency. This is very important when determining bandwidth requirements. There will be a brief refresher on the trigonometric Fourier series then the exponential series will be studied extensively. The Fourier transform can be used to determine the spectral content of virtually any signal encountered in the undergraduate curriculum, aperiodic, or periodic. It is also valuable in determining the frequency response characteristics of linear systems. Some filter theory is included in the course along with the Laplace transform. Much of the signal processing performed today is done digitally so the remainder of the course will approach most of the aforementioned topics from the viewpoint of the discrete domain with a strong emphasis on sampling and aliasing. Finite impulse response filters will be introduced along with recursive filters using the bilinear transform method.


Fourier series and Fourier transform; discrete-time signals and systems and their Fourier analysis; sampling; z-transform. E E 353Signals and Systems: Continuous and Discrete Time (3) is a core course taken by all computer engineering students that provides exposure to a variety of topics in linear systems. The material in this course is needed for further study in image processing and data communications, both of which are major areas of specialization within the computer engineering curriculum.This course is divided into three main sections - continuous-time linear system analysis, sampling and reconstruction, and discrete-time (digital)linear system analysis. Although the material covered in the first and last sections is similar, fundamental differences between continuous- and discrete-time exist. One of the goals of this course is to make the student aware of these differences.The first part of the course discusses continuous-time linear system analysis. It begins with basic time-domain mathematical descriptions of various signals and systems. The bulk of the analysis, however, is in frequency domain approaches such as the Fourier Series and the Fourier Transform. Applications such as modulation and multiplexing are understood much easier using frequency-domain analysis approaches.The middle part of the course deals with the bridge between continuous- and discrete-time, namely signal sampling and reconstruction. Theoretical and practical approaches to sampling/reconstruction are covered. Finally the Nyquist sampling theorem, which is the key to all digital signals, is developed. At this point, students are ready to study discrete-time systems.The final part of this course revisits system analysis, although now discrete-time (or digital) systems are considered. As in the continuous-time case, both time-domain and frequency-domain approaches to the analysis problem are discussed. The course ends with select topics in the z-transform, which is the digital counterpart to the Laplace transform.


Generic communication system; signal transmission; digital communication systems; amplitude modulation; angle modulation. E E 360 Communications Systems (3) E E 360 is a junior-level elective course in the electrical engineering curriculum that provides a detailed foundation of communications systems, expanding on the topics covered in a standard linear systems class. The first part of the course deals with analog communications. First, analog amplitude modulation (AM) is presented, covering double-sideband suppressed carrier, double-sideband large carrier, single sideband, and vestigial sideband modulation formats. Detection techniques for these modulation schemes are also covered. The phase-locked loop for coherent carrier tracking is also presented. Second, analog angle modulation is presented in the forms of frequency modulation (FM) and phase modulation (PM). Estimating the bandwidth of the angle modulated carrier is covered, as well as various generation and detection methods. After analog communications are covered, the basics of digital modulation are presented. Sampling theory and analog-to-digital conversion are covered. Particular attention is paid to the signal-to-noise ratio and the aggregate bit rate at the output of the digital modulator. The principles of Nyquist pulse shaping are presented. Particular topics include intersymbol interference, line coding, and power spectral density. A presentation of emerging digital communications technologies concludes the course. Topics may include mobile radio, high definition television, broadband services, video compression, and high-speed local area networks.


Data transmission, encoding, link control techniques; communication network architecture, design; computer communication system architecture, protocols. CMPEN 362CMPEN (E E) 362 Communication Networks (3)CMPEN (E E) 362 is an elective course in both the electrical and computer engineering curricula which provides an overview of the broad field of data and computer communications. First, a general model of the communication task is presented, including the layered concept by which each layer provides services for the layer above. First, the lowest (physical) layer is studied. This involves signal design, Fourier analysis representations, bandwidth concepts, transmission impairments and communication media properties. Then the next higher (link) layer is considered which involves organizing bits into frames, data link and error control methods (including frame sequence numbering and error detection principles). Multiplexing to share a link is studied, including frequency division multiplexing, dedicated time division multiplexing, and statistical time multiplexing.At the network layer level, there are two categories: broadcast (usually local area) and switching networks. Broadcast and local area network studies include bus, tree and star topologies, Ethernet, optical fiber bus networks, ring networks, and medium access control protocols.Switching and routing concepts for networks are explained, including both circuit and packet switching, datagrams and virtual circuits. Properties of frame relay and asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks are described. Internetworking frame structures, routing and protocols are studied. Also, bridge routing for local networks is described.At the still higher transport (network end-to-end control) layer, transport protocols, including TCP/EP, are described. 041b061a72
