Perform experimental work on 100G and 400Gcoherent optical transceivers, including component characterization,prototyping, bring-up, debugging, performance testing, and design verificationtesting (DVT). Conduct theoretical work on next generation coherenttransceivers including digital signal processing (DSP) architecture studies, developmentof models for electrical, optical and electro-optical components, and carryingout of simulations using MATLAB and C++ tools to evaluate the performance ofvarious DSP algorithms. Determine the requirements to electrical, optical, andelectro-optical components.
