The emerging applications like 5G, cloud, and high-definition streaming is driving the need for faster and high spectral efficiency optical networks. As a result, there is an urgent requirement for developing low-cost and high spectral efficiency transceivers to quench the ever-increasing bandwidth requirement. The demand for integrated photonic solutions is increasing due to the advantages of integration in terms of size, cost and energy consumption compared to the discrete architectures. These requirements can only be met by continued innovation. This talk will focus on the development of an integrated simplified coherent receiver and the utilization of bandwidth-efficient multi-level duo-binary modulation formats to fulfill the requirements of the next generation access networks. 



Md Ghulam Saber received the B.S. and M.S. degrees, both in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Islamic University of Technology (IUT), Bangladesh in 2013 and 2015, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in Photonics from McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 2019.  His research interest includes silicon photonics, plasmonics, and optical communications. Dr. Saber is currently working as a Senior Optical Engineer at Infinera Canada Inc, where he is involved in the optical design, calibration, optical DVT, and debug of line system products, and other advanced optical modules. He has authored over 46 peer-reviewed journal articles (26 as first-author) and 20 conference papers and filed for 1 patent. He received the IUT Gold Medal for academic excellence during undergraduate studies. He also received travel grants from Optica (formerly known as Optical Society of America) to attend Siegman Laser school at Stanford University, USA and IONS KOALA at the University of Adelaide, Australia. During his Ph.D., he was awarded the R.H. Tomlinson Doctoral Fellowship from McGill University and the FRQNT Doctoral Fellowship from the province of Quebec. He also received the SPIE Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship and the prestigious IEEE Photonics Society Graduate Student Scholarship (awarded to only 10 students each year globally) in 2019. Currently he is serving as a Topic Editor for MDPI Photonics.
