MNSU Communications Research Group


Faculty Member: Qun (Vincent) Zhang

We are a group of people in the ECE Department at the Minnesota State University, Mankato working hard and enthusiastically on research problems in Optical communication Systems and Networks, Optoelectronic Integrated Circuits (OEICs), and Design Automation Software Tools.


Current Projects:


Polarization mode dispersion effects in optical fibers


SSSF simulation schemes for vector optical fiber channel


Control for coherent optical transceivers  


Outage evaluation for coherent optical fiber communication systems with PMD effects


DSP block processing for coherent optical fiber communication systems


A simulation based discrete time optical communication course development
