New Optimized Receiver for Pilot Symbol Assisted Modulation (PSAM)

Description
Pilot Symbol Assisted Modulation is a wireless communications method for reducing the effects of a fading signal. By periodically inserting known ‘pilot’ symbols into a transmitter’s data stream, a receiver is able to derive an estimation of a fading channel’s amplitude and phase reference. This channel gain estimate allows the receiver to compensate for fading, […]

Low Loss Meta-Material Optical Waveguides

Description
The researchers at the University of Alberta have developed a new class of optical waveguides with a meta-material cladding which enables strong confinement of energy within the waveguides making it an ideal choice for Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC) and optical communication systems. Unlike many other existing approaches, the current approach does not suffer from propagation […]
