This paper presents the high-level COCONUT architecture of an optical access network based on coherent technology, supporting ultra-dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM). The COCONUT network should allow for seamless evolution from present PON architectures, but also support new emerging applications such as mobile back-haul and front-haul. Coherent… (More)
Near edge x-ray absorption fine structure spectra have been measured and interpreted by means of density functional theory for five different azabenzenes (pyridine, pyridazine, pyrimidine, pyrazine, and s-triazine) in the gas phase. The experimental and theoretical spectra at the N 1s and C 1s edges show a strong resonance assigned to the transition of the… (More)
We have measured the synchrotron-induced photofragmentation of isolated 2-deoxy-D-ribose molecules (C(5)H(10)O(4)) at four photon energies, namely, 23.0, 15.7, 14.6, and 13.8 eV. At all photon energies above the molecule's ionization threshold we observe the formation of a large variety of molecular cation fragments, including CH(3) (+), OH(+), H(3)O(+),… (More)
The results of the analysis of the COCONUT (“COst-effective COhereNt Ultra-dense-WDM-PON for λ-to-the-user access”) project architectures with respect to their associated cost, power consumption and migration scenarios are presented. COCONUT develops udWDM access with simplified coherent technology to allow for node consolidation,… (More)
Wider deployment of fiber in the last mile is driven by increased customer needs for broadband communication services. This deployment requires solutions that reduce operational expenditures for the operator. A cost-efficient fully reliable and accurate monitoring solution supporting fault detection, identification, and localization in different fiber… (More)

The core level photoemission and near edge X-ray photoabsorption spectra of guanine in the gas phase have been measured and the results interpreted with the aid of high level ab initio calculations. Tautomers are clearly identified spectroscopically, and their relative free energies and Boltzmann populations at the temperature of the experiment (600 K) have… (More)
