Dr. Salim FACI, an associate professor from Le Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, Paris (France), visited Prof. Nathan Gomes and his team in the University of Kent, Canterbury (UK) from 12th to 16th November 2018 with the purpose of evaluation of radio over fiber performances for 5G fronthaul applications based on phase modulation and coherent detection. During this STSM, silicone photonic integrated circuits were defined as a potential solution for such analogue photonic systems. Future collaboration between the two intuitions was engaged on this way.
