Research Areas

Professor Carter has spent the last 25 years working on High Data rate Optical Communications. His recent work in this area included the co-leading a team that developed a record breaking nonlinear optical semiconductor wave guide for applications in format and wavelength conversion in optical communication systems. He has also been active in the area of coherent optical communications. He is transitioning this research from long haul to data center applications. He is also collaboratively pursuing mobile time transfer using optical techniques.
