About this Research Topic
Nowadays, optoelectronic devices play an important role in the modern access networks such as optical 5G-based access system, and optical-wireless access networks. Access networks involve many kinds of optoelectronic devices and sensors, such as optical fiber devices, photoelectric detection devices, light-reflecting devices, etc. With the development of optical devices, materials and advanced access network technology, optoelectronic devices have become an indispensable part of access network-based industrial fields. Their technical level has a serious impact on the performance of related industrial products. Therefore, the new principles and improvement of performance have always been eternal topic in optoelectronic devices for access networks.
Optoelectronic devices involve many fields such as device fabrication, physical modeling and simulation, signal processing, photoelectric detection and display. Moreover, many related photonics devices have been derived. In the past few decades, the related technology has developed rapidly. With the continuous progress of the new access network systems, optical information, numerical analysis and new materials, optoelectronic devices have also obtained the means of technological development. At the same time, the development of society puts forward a higher demand for optoelectronic devices in access networks with new features such as broadband, high-speed, integration, intelligence. Therefore, various new devices have been emerging; and their performance and functions have been improved and their new access network applications have been developed.
Despite the rapid development of optoelectronic devices, we still need to continue to adopt new technologies, use new materials, study new principles and develop new applications for access networks. For example, a more advanced optoelectronic system model, innovative optical processing devices, optical signal transmission efficiency, and the improvement of optoelectronic devices with the development of related disciplines would be beneficial.
