Peter J. Winzer

Peter J. Winzer studied electrical engineering/communications engineering at the Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, and received his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in 1996 and 1998, respectively. His academic work, largely supported by the European Space Agency (ESA), was related to the analysis and modeling of space-borne Doppler wind lidar and highly sensitive free-space optical communication systems. In this context, he specialized on optical modulation formats and high-sensitivity receivers using coherent and direct detection. He continued to pursue this field of research after joining Bell Laboratories in November 2000, where he focused on Raman amplification, optical modulation formats, advanced receiver concepts, and digital signal processing techniques for 10 and 40-Gb/s fiber-optic communication systems. He is a member of the OSA and a senior member of the IEEE.
