WS-7: 3rd Workshop on Orbital Angular Momentum Transmission

WS-7: 3rd Workshop on Orbital Angular Momentum Transmission

  Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) is regarded as one of the potential key technologies for B5G and 6G mobile communications. No matter in the optical transmission or the radio wave transmission, OAM has been concerned as a new dimension (or a degree of freedom) which can provide additional multiplexing and higher spectrum efficiency, e.g. Tbps data rate is aimed with OAM channels multiplexed in the free space backhaul transmission and Pbps data rate is aimed in the optical fiber with OAM mode division multiplexing. In addition, the theoretical study of OAM has already been engaged in the quantum mechanics for a long time. Many researches in the vortex electron show the promising technology in OAM photon radiation and reception, e.g., relativistic electron cyclotron radiation and electron cyclotron masers. Therefore, the 3rd workshop on OAM transmission in ICC 2021 will focus on both the detailed physical theories of OAM and applications in wireless communications. The workshop is expected to be held with the discussion of the state-of-the-art research on OAM transmission and the promising future applications. The topics include but are not limited to the following items:

  • OAM multiplexing transmission in backhaul system
  • OAM antenna design
  • OAM wave long distance transmission
  • OAM modulation and coding
  • Secure communication with OAM
  • MIMO transmission with OAM
  • Optical OAM in fiber and in free space
  • Satellite and space communications with OAM
  • Acoustic wave with OAM
  • Quantum theory of OAM photon
  • Electron vortex beam
  • Quantum OAM detection
  • Quantum key distribution with OAM
  • OAM sensor
