In this ebook we current a photograph of the state-of-the-art in photonics in 1994, exhibiting regular purposes and rising new ones; discussing the most important applied sciences in the back of those purposes, their barriers, and customers. The articles during this e-book are prolonged types of the papers awarded on the first overseas convention on functions ofPhotonic expertise (ICAPT'94), held in Toronto, Canada, on June 21-23, 1994. Photonics has been well-known as one of many key applied sciences for the 21 st century, as electronics used to be the know-how of the twentieth centrury and electric engineering replaced the lifetime of humans within the nineteenth century. in line with the hot record of the association for monetary Cooperation and improvement in Paris (OECD), the marketplace for photonics will develop dramatically within the subsequent 10 years with an anticipated world-wide expenditure people $230 billion from a few US $30 billion in 1992. The explosion of knowledge know-how used to be the most important motive force for the deployment of photonic know-how. It created insatiable call for for ever-higher info transmission and processing charges, which can't be sustained by means of electronics by myself. Boosted via the enonnous funding of the telecommunications and protection industries, the call for for photonics (or optoelectronics) is gradually expanding. it really is solidly demonstrated within the lengthy­ haul communications, laser printers and CD-ROMs.

Summary We have described the implementation of a dual-window multi-gigabit WDM research network over the existing interoffice fiber plant using advanced optical technologies. Several SONET/ATM network experiments were performed and service applications were demonstrated using ATM switching and OC-3c and DS3 interfaces. 7. Acknowledgments We would like to acknowledge the collaboration of many of our Bellcore colleagues and Corning Inc. for providing the dispersion-compensating fibers and the EDFAs.

Most of the connections between research nodes are between ethernet networks. A number of tests have been undertaken, however, to provide ATM from desktop to desktop, a feature which will be used increasingly in future communication networks. The research network provides facilities for testing different ATM and mixed network architectures. There is access to satellite services through the CRC and Telesat nodes. Experiments are planned to develop interactive services which can be delivered over the satellite networks to remote locations.
