    Based on a variety of long-term network traffic data from different geographies and applications, in addition to long-term scaling trends of key information and communication technologies, we identify fundamental scaling disparities between the technologies used to generate and process data and those used to transport data. These disparities could lead to the data transport network falling behind ... View full abstract»

    Emerging technologies such as spectrally efficient multicarrier higher order modulation and bandwidth variable wavelength selective switches have led to a change in the optical network architecture from rigid and homogeneous to flexible and heterogeneous in terms of the bit rate, center frequency spacing, modulation format, and optical reach. The elastic optical network (EON) is a network architec... View full abstract»

    Digital coherent transceivers have revolutionized optical fiber communications due to their superior performance offered compared to intensity modulation and direct detection based alternatives. As systems employing digital coherent transceivers seek to approach their information theoretic capacity, the use of multilevel modulation formats combined with appropriate forward error correction becomes...

Aims & Scope

The Journal of Lightwave Technology is comprised of original contributions, both regular papers and letters, covering work in all aspects of optical guided-wave science, technology, and engineering. Manuscripts are solicited which report original theoretical and/or experimental results which advance the technological base of guided-wave technology. Tutorial and review papers are by invitation only. Topics of interest include the following: fiber and cable technologies, active and passive guided-wave componentry (light sources, detectors, repeaters, switches, fiber sensors, etc.); integrated optics and optoelectronics; and systems, subsystems, new applications and unique field trials. System oriented manuscripts should be concerned with systems which perform a function not previously available, out-perform previously established systems, or represent enhancements in the state of the art in general.
