© 2019 Optical Society of America under the terms of the OSA Open Access Publishing Agreement We demonstrate the transmission of a 30-GBd polarization-multiplexed probabilistically shaped 4096-ary quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) signal over 50.9-km standard signal-mode fiber (SSMF), with a net single-carrier bit rate of 484.4 Gb/s carrying 16.1 information bits per symbol (a potential spectral efficiency of 15.9 bits/s/Hz when taking into account a 0.01 spectral roll-off). The signal is generated from 28-nm complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) digital-to-analog converters (DACs) with 8-bit nominal resolution and is received by an intradyne coherent receiver with a laser that has a linewidth of ?1 kHz.

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 ...

Digital networks at the nexus of productivity growth

  • Kamat S.
  • Prakash S.
  • Saniee I.
  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
