RTU Telecommunications Institute at international conference "PIERS 2013" in Taipei, Taiwan

RTU Institute of Telecommunications  presented latest scientific research results at “Progress In Electromagnetics Research Symposium – PIERS 2013” that was held in Taipei, Taiwan, during March 25 - 28, 2013.


Progress In Electromagnetics Research Symposium („PIERS”) takes place twice a year. This was already the 33rd PIERS conference in a row. It provides an international forum for reporting progress and recent advances in the modern development of electromagnetic theory and its new and exciting applications starting 1989. Topics include radiation, propagation, diffraction, scattering, guidance, resonance, power, energy and force issues, and all other modern developments, with spectra ranging from statics to RF, microwave, photonics, and beyond.

This year conference was organized by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA), University of Washington (USA), Oriental Institute of Technology  (Taiwan), Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia), Chuo University (Japan).

Scientific personnel of RTU Institute of Telecommunications at this conference presented following research topics covering fiber optic access and transport networks as well as measurement area of optical fiber’s parameters:

  • Vjaceslavs Bobrovs, Aleksejs Udalcovs, Rolands Parts, Ilja Trifonovs - „Evaluation of Nonlinear Effect Impact on Optical Signal Transmission over Combined WDM System”;

  • Girts Ivanovs, Sandis Spolitis, Rolands Parts, Vjaceslavs Bobrovs - „Performance Improvement of Spectrum-sliced Passive Optical Network”;

  • Andis Supe, Jurgis Porins, Girts Ivanovs - „Optical Fiber Nonlinear Coeffcient Measurements Using FWM”;

Research papers accepted for the presentation at this conference will be indexed in SCOPUS, Thomson's Science Citation Index Expanded and IEE's INSPEC databases.
