As the demands for scaling the capacity of both intra- and inter-data center networks continue to surge exponentially, we find ourselves confronted with a formidable barrier, and on the edge of a crucial moment that requires a drastic transformation in transceiver architecture. This presentation aims to introduce an innovative architecture tailored for the next generation of energy-efficient, high-density transceivers, leveraging our pioneering photonic integrated optical digital-to-analog converters and optical signal processors.
Dr. Tomoyuki Akiyama was born in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan in 1970. He received the Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctoral degrees in electronic engineering from the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, in 1993, 1995, and 1998, respectively. In 1998, he joined Fujitsu, Limited, where he started his pioneering work on investigating optical properties of carrier-injected quantum dots. In 2006, he co-founded QD Laser, Inc., where he started mass-production and -marketing of quantum-dot optical devices. Dr. Tomoyuki Akiyama is currently leading an R&D team of Si PIC-based optical transceivers at Fujitsu Limited. He is currently a member of OFC technical program committee.
