Chongjin Xie

Chongjin Xie received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, China in 1996 and 1999, respectively. He worked at Photonics laboratory, Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden as a post-doctor from 1999 to 2001, where he did research on polarization-mode dispersion effects in soliton transmission systems and polarization-mode-dispersion compensation techniques.

Dr. Xie joined Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies (now Alcatel-Lucent) in Holmdel, New Jersey, USA in 2001 and became a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff, doing research on optical communication systems and networks. He has been involved in research on high-capacity optical transmission systems and networks, from 10-Gb/s and 40-Gb/s direct-detection systems to 100-Gb/s and 400-Gbs coherent-detection systems. His research interests cover many aspects of fiber optical communication systems and networks, including high-speed transmission, advanced modulation formats and detection techniques, digital signal processing, fiber nonlinearity management and compensation, polarization effects and mitigation, optical performance monitoring, optical signal processing, and etc. Dr. Xie joined Alibaba Group in 2014, working on optical interconnects in datacenters.

Dr. Xie has authored and co-authored more than 200 journal papers and conference publications, and two book chapters. He holds 25 US patens and 27 other countries patents. He was invited to attend 2013 NAE Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. Dr. Xie is an associate editor of Journal of Lightwave Technology, and has served as chairs, TPC chairs or TPC members in many conferences, such as OFC, IEEE Photonics Conference, Frontiers in Optics, OECC and ACP. Dr. Xie is a Fellow of OSA and a senior member of IEEE.

For JLT he is handling submissions on the following topics:

  • Digital signal processing
  • Coherent subsystems and systems
  • Modulation formats
  • Transmission system design, modeling, and experiments
  • Datacenter optics
