Performance enhancement of bidirectional TWDM-PON by Rayleigh backscattering mitigation

Ibrahim Elewah

American College of the Middle East ACM

Ibrahim Elwah received his M.Sc. in Electronics and Communications Engineering in 2015 from the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT), Cairo, (Egypt). Before that, he worked as Teaching Assistant for six years (2010-2016) in Higher Technological Institute (HTI, Egypt) in Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. In 2016, he joined American College of the Middle East (ACM) in Kuwait to work as an Instructor in Computer Engineering Technology department. Ibrahim carries out his research at AASTMT. His research focuses on the study of the optical fiber nonlinearities, Passive Optical Networks (PONs), Optoelectronics devices and recently Silicon Photonics.


A bidirectional time wavelength division multiplexing-passive optical network (TWDM-PON) with a centralized light source (CLS) is designed and evaluated. TWDM-PON is the promising solution for PON future expansion and... [ view full abstract ]
