There is an ever-increasing world-wide commercial need for higher and higher rates of data transport. Despite the cyclical nature of the general economy, the volume of electronic communication has been on a steady growth path. The increasing need for moving large volumes of data has considerably impacted the area of long haul optical transmission. Aggregate long haul data rates, in the C band of the optical fiber spectrum, are expected to reach 25Tbit/s per fiber. This creates a compelling need for both line and client side systems capable of very high data rate transport and switching within a very small volume of space and reduced power consumption. Fulfilling this need requires creative innovations in the field of optical components, and photonic integration has been increasingly proposed and utilized as a solution in this application space.

The OIDA workshop will be held with OSA’s Advanced Photonics Congress at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto, Canada. Workshop attendees will be able to join the Congress sessions for an additional fee.
