Anjali Agarwal is a Senior Scientist at Applied Communication Sciences (formerly Telcordia Technologies Applied Research), with experience in physical layer aspects of high capacity dense wavelength division multiplexed networks, nonlinear optics and optical signal processing, avionic networks, and optical code division multiplexing systems and more recently quantum communications. At ACS, she has been a primary contributor to a large number of government-sponsored programs, playing a key role in new formulations and experimental demonstrations for a wide range of optical technology applications. Her current research focuses on innovative applications of fiber parametric amplifiers including the quantum noise properties of such amplifiers, analog optical systems, and optical signal processing.
Dr. Agarwal received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern University in 2001. She then joined Lucent Technologies where she performed pioneering research in the development of next generation optical products, specifically, high capacity, ultra-long-haul optical transmission systems. She has published more than 90 technical papers in international journals and at leading industry conferences and has been granted five US patents. Dr. Agarwal served on the technical committee for OFC: Core Networks from 2010-2012 and is a member of the OSA and IEEE.
For JLT she is handling submissions on the following topics:
- CDMA subsystems and systems
- Nonlinear optics applications
- Quantum information subsystems and systems
- Free-space optical communications
- Microwave photonics
- Radio-over-fiber systems
