WS-10: Workshop on Orbital Angular Momentum Transmission

WS-10: Workshop on Orbital Angular Momentum Transmission

  The first workshop on Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) transmission was successfully held in ICC2019, which focused on electromagnetic wave transmission with Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM). No matter in the optical transmission or the radio wave transmission, the 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. Moreover, the theoretical study of OAM has already been engaged in the quantum mechanics for a long time. Many researches of the vortex electron show the promising technology in OAM wave photon radiation and reception, e.g., relativistic electron cyclotron radiation. Therefore, the 2nd workshop on OAM transmission in ICC2020 will enlarge the scope of the call for paper. Not only the OAM in optical and wireless radio transmissions, but also the deep physical theories and relevant studies are welcome, such as Quantum Electro-Dynamics (QED) analysis of OAM photon (especially in RF band), electron vortex beam, OAM wave quantum sensor, etc. 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
  • OAM security communication
  • MIMO transmission with OAM
  • Optical OAM in fiber and in free space
  • Satellite and space communications with OAM
  • Acoustic wave OAM
  • OAM wave detection and image
  • Quantum theory of OAM photon
  • Vortex electron beam
  • OAM property of electron
  • OAM quantum sensor
  • OAM and SAM coupling
