OIDA Sponsored Webinar: How Design Tools Help You to Leverage Photonic Integration for New Applications

On Demand

01 September 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

With photonic integration making more inroads and getting mature, optical chips are bound to get larger and more complex. But this calls for more sophisticated modeling tools, first of all to well handle these larger chips, but also in order to allow for first time right, similar to what happens with electronic IC designs. During this webinar, a number of use cases will be discussed that span a range of PIC applications and that illustrate how complex active and passive structures can be best modeled. The webinar is intended for everyone who is interested in photonic integration and does not require prior PIC modeling expertise.

This webinar will introduce various aspects of coherent technologies in the scenario of B5G and 6G fronthaul, including high speed modulation, energy-efficient implementation of digital signal processing, point-to-multipoint architecture, resource allocation, and so forth.

Resilience: Career Growth and Insights

On Demand

19 August 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Sometimes we get lost in the throws of life- work, family, school, children, deadlines, deliverables, milestones, pregnancies, death, life. And while “life” is happening, we somehow believe we are “in-control”. In an instant, this sense of control can be shaken to its core by a death, tragedy, job loss or other life “shift”. March 2020 marked a shift in the way we lived and did business. While countries gave it various names- Shelter-in-place, Lockdown, Quarantine - the world saw a change in the way we lived our daily lives. People went from going to work every day to work-at-home, or in many cases, job shifts, furloughs or job loss. There are many items that are important in times like these – health and wellness (in all aspects of your being), safety, security, shelter, clothing, nourishment (to name a few). It can certainly feel like the carpet has been ripped from under you when circumstances change. Whether you are feeling the impact of COVID-19, a change at work or home, or you are getting ready to make a change, this workshop is designed to help you understand that you were made for such a time as this. This session will provide you with frameworks to use as you continue in your current role, and/or transition to your next opportunity and/or move to the next phase in your life. Each person’s transition is different, and we will provide you with tools to assist you in this moment in time, as well as reference material to assist you during your transition. Ultimately, you will walk away understanding that there is a purpose behind your path, and guidelines as to how to maximize it.

Laser Systems Engineering

17 August 2021, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

While there are a number of courses on laser design, this course emphasizes a systems‐level overview of the design and engineering of optical systems which incorporate these unique sources of light. Starting with a review of Gaussian beam characteristics and propagation, we then look at laser system optics, beam control and scanning, detectors specific to laser systems, and the integration of these topics for developing a complete laser-based optical system. The emphasis is on real‐world design problems, as well as the commercial off-the‐shelf (COTS) components used to solve them.

OIDA Sponsored Webinar: Multicore SM and MM Fibers with Trenches and Air-Hole Assisted

28 July 2021, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Optiwave Systems Inc. offers software tools that can be used to simulate & analyze single-mode and multimode multicore fibers with/without trenches and air-hole assisted structures. The supported modes in the structure are accurately obtained by modal analysis in OptiMode software. Then, the coupling coefficients between the modes in the same core or different cores are calculated and the crosstalk is found using OptiSystem software. The crosstalk parameters are used also in OptiSystem software to simulate modulated signal transmission in MCF as will be demonstrated in this webinar.

Optical Networking an Enabler for 5G and Beyond

On Demand

26 May 2021, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Digital technologies have been identified as key in addressing fundamental challenges associated with societal and economic objectives, such as improved quality of living for citizens, sustainable development and economic growth. In this context, 5G infrastructures will play a fundamental role in bringing these technologies to society transforming their every day’s life in the way services are provided, and businesses are run. However, this transformation requires new service capabilities that network operators need to support including: i) connectivity for a growing number of very diverse devices, ii) ubiquitous access with varying degrees of mobility in heterogeneous environments and, iii) mission critical services, supporting highly variable performance attributes in a cost and energy-efficient manner. These demanding and diverse requirements bring the need of a paradigm shift migrating from closed purposely developed infrastructures into open elastic ecosystems able to support a variety of very diverse services and end-users. These ecosystems will rely on flexible architectural models adopting convergence and integration of a variety of network and compute technologies, network softwarisation, hardware programmability and disaggregation of compute/storage and network resources. In this context, the webinar will focus on describing the relevant ecosystem and the key role that advanced optical networking solutions can play in the 5G era and beyond. Performance evaluation results as well as relevant demonstration activities will be also discussed.

OIDA Sponsored Webinar: How to Choose the Right Diffraction Grating for Pulse Compression

On Demand

19 May 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Diffraction gratings are critical components for most Chirped Pulse Amplification (CPA) laser systems. There are many different grating types (metal, all-dielectric, and hybrid metal-dielectric reflection gratings, as well as transmission gratings), and equally as many trade-offs relating to diffraction efficiency, spectral and angular bandwidth, polarization, laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT), and temporal dispersion, to name a few. Choosing the right grating for a given laser system can be very confusing. In this webinar we will describe how you can make the best grating selection for your laser requirements.

OIDA Sponsored Webinar: How to Monitor Laser System Performance With Power Measurement

On Demand

06 May 2021, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Does your laser system always produce the exact same output? The laser itself, the optical components that guide your laser’s light to its delivery point and also the surrounding environment, all have an impact on the output and efficiency of your processes. To ensure consistent, repeatable results, it is important to track your system’s health at various checkpoints. Do you know how to measure it?

5G and Manufacturing: Implementation Guideline for your Smart Factory

On Demand

03 May 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Imagine a world where intelligence is added to all elements of manufacturing. Picture a manufacturing floor where every single “thing” is able to produce, receive and analyze data (hence making every “thing“ a “smart thing“). Now, imagine that all “smart things“ are connected such that they can exchange data with each other, analyze the data, and make and execute decisions. When we move beyond the “thing“ being simply smart, to a place where we are: 1. Utilizing machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other forms of data science and analytics to improve manufacturing processes 2. Building digital threads and digital twins for cradle to grave track and traceability, and 3. Establishing connected communications within a digital supply chain then we are moving toward the true meaning of the smart factory. One can imagine the ease of tracking defects, the opportunity for new digital platforms and business models, and, most importantly, the change to the way we manufacture. This presentation will provide a "starter kit" for those on their road to smart factory implementation. Whether you are a novice or a veteran, this starter kit will teach/remind you of the key elements to keep in mind as you begin any implementation.
