Re: Sounds like one does in RF modulation

I was thinking the same thing -- this is what RF digital comms engineers have done for many decades. The cleverness of their technique appears to be the generation of a perfect "picket fence" of rectangular spectra in the frequency domain -- which inherently results in raised cosine pulses in the time domain. I have to agree with the comment from the researcher, that it's hard to believe nobody thought of this before.

A 25% increase isn't the same as 10X.  Thanks for the feedback.  Guess we have to be careful of believing everything we read.

The original paper

http://www.nature.com/ncomms/2013/131204/ncomms3898/full/ncomms3898.html

makes no claim of 10x.  That was added by the University PR.  You really, really have to learn to avoid repeating the PR spam.

The paper quantifies about a 25% gain relative to OFDM found in a related investigation of Sinc pulses, but does not say they achieved that.

If I read this correctly, the idea of shaping the optical symbols to cram as many symbols/sec as possible is what RF engineers have done for a long time. Using smooth shapes, a typical example being the "raised cosine curve," you can reduce the bandwidth of the medium, for any given data carrying capacity.

Increasing bandwidth with a transmitter change will be great for the industry.  Not having to replace the optical medium could be an easy upgrade path for existing deployments.  Thanks for the work and learning.
