Mansoor Yousefi, Associate Professor at Télécom Paris, is awarded an ERC Starting Grant 201810 January 2019
The objective of his project is to determine the information-theoretic limits in optical fiber networks, and to devise communication schemes that approach these limits. In particular, the project aims to improve understanding of the fiber nonlinearity and its impact on high-speed optical fiber communication systems. A generous funding of 1.5M Euro over a five-year period will enable Mansoor Yousefi to recruit seven researchers and, together with other members of his team, carry out this research.
