R & Ds for 21st Century Photonic Network in Japan

  title={R & Ds for 21st Century Photonic Network in Japan},
  author={Ken-ichi Kitayama},
Government-funded R&D initiatives have been playing crucial roles for developing photonic networks. The R&D project is typically carried out for a relatively long period of five-years, and the goal is set so high that no single private sector can afford the risk. In this paper, challenging governmentfunded R&D initiatives of photonic networks in Japan is introduced. They have been launched in 2006, which aims to establish the photonic platform to provide abundant bandwidth on demand, at any… CONTINUE READING
