SURVIVING GLOBAL SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

  • De Neve P
  • Ebert C.

Although there are many good resasons to glabally distribute development activities , success is not garanteed by just opening a development center in another region of the world. This article summarizes and distills best pratices from true global software development.

NONLINEAR GAIN CONTROL OF DISPERSION-MANAGED SOLITON AMPLITUDE ANDCOLLISIONS

  • Wabnitz S.

The stabilizing action of nonlinear gain on dispersion-managed soliton transmissions is investigated. By means of a proper combination of nonlinear gain and filtering, the background and amplitude instability introduced by lumped guiding filters can be controlled. Indeed, radiative background that may not be separated from the signal when the average ...

ON THE PHYSICAL ORIGIN OF THE 3-DB NOISE FIGURE LIMIT IN LASER AND PARAMETRIC OPTICAL AMPLIFIERS

  • Desurvire E.

We integrate into a unifed model the fundamental conclusions of previous theoretical works concerning the quantum theory of linear optical amplifiers. We analyze the statistical processes contributing to noise in both laser and parametric amplification. We show that the so-called “signal/amplified spontaneous emission” beat noise directly originates from thermal statistics ...
