Demonstration of vector mode multiplexing and demultiplexing in a 160 Gbit/s free-space link
"We experimentally demonstrate mode division multiplexing using four vector modes, which are part of a modal basis set having spatially varying polarisation. We show a link capacity of 160 Gbit/s, modal crosstalk less then -16.7 dB and measured BER results. "

Experimental Demonstration of Obstruction-Tolerant Free-Space Transmission of Two 50-Gbaud QPSK Data Channels using Bessel Beams carrying Orbital Angular Momentum
We experimentally demonstrate free-space optical transmission using two multiplexed OAM-carrying Bessel beams under obstructed path conditions. An OSNR penalty < 2.5 dB is observed when the obstruction is placed in the beam center.

Evaluation of Frequency Fluctuation in Fiber-Wireless Link with Direct IQ Down-Converter
We demonstrate 12-Gbaud QPSK signal transmission in a fiber-wireless link and compare a modulator-based optical two-tone generator and an optical heterodyning with free-running lasers. The obtained frequency fluctuation of the two-tone system meets the requirements of the radio regulations.

5.6 Gbit/s Downlink and 1.5 Gbit/s Uplink Optical Wireless Transmission at Indoor Distances (? 1.5 m)
We experimentally realized a bi-directional high-speed optical system working at common environment distances and illumination levels. The record aggregate bitrate of 5.6 Gbit/s is achieved exploiting WDM approach, commercial LEDs and DMT modulation.

36.7 Gbps Spectrum-efficient Indoor Optical Wireless System with Beam-Steering
We propose a novel spectrum-efficient indoor optical wireless solution providing multi-Gigabits-per-second with passive diffractive beam-steering technique and discrete multitonemodulation. Diffracted link performance of 36.7 Gbps over more than 2.5 m is reported.

432-Gb/s PDM-16QAM Signal Wireless Delivery at W-band Using Optical and Antenna Polarization Multiplexing
We have experimentally demonstrated 432-Gb/s PDM-16QAM modulated W-band wireless signal delivery adopting optical and antenna polarization multiplexing with a SE of 11.4b/s/Hz. The BER after 2-m 4×4 MIMO wireless delivery can be less than FEC threshold of 3.8×10-3.

Metamaterial Fibres - Hyperlenses and Beyond
Fibre drawing can be used to mass-produce metamaterials with designer electromagnetic response, for THz, infrared and beyond. We present a summary of the field, including experimental demonstrations of THz hyperlenses, infrared metamaterial fibres, and the path to shorter wavelengths.

Multiple Four-Wave Mixing in Optical Fibres
We propose a general formulation to derive the set of equations of a multiple four-wave mixing process involving any number N of waves, equally spaced in frequency. We compare the model with experimental results for N=6 and find excellent agreement

Optical Flip-Flop Memory and Routing Operation Based on Polarization Bistability in Optical Fiber
A polarization bistability and hysteresis cycle phenomenon is demonstrated in optical fibers thanks to a counter-propagating four-wave mixing interaction. Based on this process, we successfully report the proof-of-principle of an optical flip-flop memory and a 10-Gbit/s routing operation.

Observation of Manakov Polarization Modulation Instability in the Normal Dispersion Regime of Randomly Birefringent Telecom Optical Fiber
We present the first experimental observation of cross-polarization modulation activated modulation instability in the normal dispersion regime of a randomly birefringent telecom optical fiber. The instability is induced by two wavelength-division-multiplexed and orthogonally polarized pumps.
