Fibre Optic nonlinear TEchnologies [FONTE]

– a European Industrial  Doctorate [EID]

 

Research in the FONTE project focuses on the development of disruptive nonlinear techniques and approaches to fibre-optic communications beyond the limits of current technology. The project will make important innovative steps in development of the technique of the nonlinear Fourier transform (NFT) and its implementation in the practical communication systems.
