Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) 2017

March 21, 2017 — March 23, 2017 — Los Angeles, California, USA

NRC photonics experts will be at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC); the biggest event of its kind in the world, OFC has attracted international optical communication professionals for more than 40 years.

OFC is the premier destination for professional networking, business opportunities and partnerships in photonics. It brings together the biggest names in the industry, and fosters innovation and inspiration by showcasing major trends and cutting-edge technological advances. In 2016, OFC attracted more than 13,000 participants from 65 countries.

Our expert Dr. Pavel Cheben is presenting the results of his research as part of the technical conference:
