Paper submitted by Prof. C.T. Shu was accepted by Top Class OFC Conference postdeadline.
As quoted from Prof H.K. TSANG, a renowned researcher in the area :
"I wish to extend my congratulations to Chester for getting his postdeadline paper accepted at OFC here in San Diego. There were 117 postdeadline submissions and only 35 accepted. As OFC is the top optical communications conference in the world (thousands of attendees), it is an extremely difficult and rare achievement to get a postdeadline paper accepted at OFC particularly as only the most significant results are submitted for the postdeadline session - Chester deserves our congratulations for his success in bringing international recognition to CUHK for his work in optical signal processing."
The paper is entitled "Delay-asymmetric nonlinear loop mirror" authored by Dr. Mable P. Fok and Prof. Chester Shu. They demonstrate a new class of nonlinear optical fiber device that provides a unique solution to address the challenge of demodulating differential phase-shifted keying signals at variable bit-rates. The work will have a significant impact in ultrafast processing of optical communication signals.
