In this talk, we will discuss key advancements in optical wireless communications showing a pathway to terabit optical wireless connectivity. We will review white light sources based on blue lasers and show their potential for long-range (hundreds of meters) and high speed (tens of gigabit) wireless connectivity.
A critical element in optical wireless communications is the receiver. To this end, we show results obtained from digital single-photon avalanche diodes (SPAD) arrays in CMOS, and highlight sensitivity gains in the region of 10 dB. Lastly, we present experimental results of optical wireless systems which use solar cells as data detectors and demonstrate their capability to receive data at speeds greater than 1 Gbps.
The Seminar will be held on the Zoom platform.
