Asia Communications and Photonics Conference (ACP) & International Conference on Information Photonics and Optical Communications (IPOC)

Workshop 8: Advanced Optical Fiber Technologies for Underwater Applications

Submarine fiber-optic cables now carry >95% of all transoceanic telecommunications traffic in an economic, fast and secure way. Fiber-optic cables also play a very important role in underwater sensing or monitoring. To develop advanced optical fiber technologies for underwater applications has been attracted extensive and intensive research interest. This workshop will give some representative optical fiber technology and application cases, involving in novel optical fibers and cables, high-speed high-capacity submarine fiber-optic communication in C+L and visible bands, and fiber-optic sensing or monitoring.
