FRED BUCHALI received the diploma degree in electrical engineering
in 1988 and the PhD degree in 1991 from Humboldt-University
Berlin. During his PhD he worked
on InGaAs/InP p-i-n photodiodes for fibre-optic communication. 1992 Fred
Buchali joined Alcatel-Lucent Germany.
He was involved in development of high speed pin photodiodes including
packaging. Since 1999 he works with optical transmission systems group, where
he investigated the mitigation of transmission impairments in 10, 40 and 100
Gb/s systems by optical, analog and digital electronic means. His current
research interests cover coherent systems for 1Tb/s and beyond using higher
level modulation based on single carrier and multi carrier approaches.
