SIMFREE - Open-source freeware for fiber optic communication and sensing simulations
Contractor: NIT (Central Chamber for Telecommunication Metrology - Z-12)
01.07-2017 - 30.06.2019 (24 months)
Project value: 134 462,40 EURO
Project aim: To meet the constantly increasing traffic in optical networks due to ever growing requirements of society spectral efficiency should be increased by using, an advanced modulation formats and reduced channel spacing. This results in increased spectral power density and interferences with an adjacent channels. The application of Raman amplifiers enables reduction of these interferences through more even distribution of power along the entire length of a fibre optic cable.
The goal of SIMFREE project is to develop intuitive opensource software to simulate new generation of fiber optic systems, which can be used as a support for research project sand most importantly in education.
Project co-financed by Ministry of Science and Higher Education within Horizon 2020 programme, competition H2020-MSCA-IF-2016 (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships);
