This year’s Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) conference and exhibition—co-sponsored by Optica, the IEEE Communications Society and the IEEE Photonics Society—will take place from 24 to 28 March in San Diego, CA, USA, and online. David Richardson, a partner researcher at Microsoft, UK, will give a plenary talk entitled, “Emerging Fiber Technologies for Future Optical Networks.” He will cover advances in fiber research over the past few years, including the capabilities of new technologies like hollow-core fibers—the focus of his own work—to increase the capacity of optical communication networks. Before his talk, OPN chatted with Richardson for a preview of what’s to come.
