Performance of 124 GBaud single-carrier based on 4-subband transmitter is compared experimentally with 4x30.25 GBaud superchannel solution. Using QPSK and 16QAM in a 125 GHz grid, subband single-carrier outperforms superchannel using QPSK thanks to empowered FEC however with 16QAM higher implementation penalties at 124 GBaud overcome this gain.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...
