Optical Communications and Photonics Technology Laboratory
The Optical Communications and Photonics Technology Laboratory of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens belongs to the Division of Communications and Signal Processing of the Department of Informatics. The Academic and Research staff (12 Professors and Associate Researchers) teams up with a number of graduate students. The laboratory activities started at the period of the first rapid expansion of optical communications in the beginning of the eighties. The first research activities of the group were focused in the field of analogue and digital optical transmission systems. The research was developed, progressively, towards some of the most advanced fields of optical communications such as optoelectronic integration, WDM and OTDM techniques, high bit rate communications of very long distances with optical solitons, etc.
