Overview

Top Research Topics at International Conference on Photonics in Switching?

  • Optics (32.92%)
  • Electronic engineering (31.66%)
  • Optoelectronics (29.54%)

The conference focuses on Optics, Electronic engineering, Optoelectronics, Optical switch and Optical performance monitoring. Optics studies presented in the conference focus on topics such as Wavelength, Optical amplifier, Optical fiber, Polarization-maintaining optical fiber and Plastic optical fiber. The work on Plastic optical fiber tackled in the event brings together disciplines like Dispersion-shifted fiber and Photonic-crystal fiber.

Electronic engineering research presented in International Conference on Photonics in Switching encompasses a variety of subjects, including Transmission (telecommunications), Wavelength-division multiplexing, Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing and Modulation. The study on Optoelectronics presented is investigated in conjunction with research in Laser. Some problems in Optical switch that were presented in the event overlapped with concepts under Packet switching, Optical transistor and Optical burst switching.

It explores research in Burst switching and overlapping concepts in Fast packet switching to expand the discourse in Optical burst switching. Topics in Optical performance monitoring explored in International Conference on Photonics in Switching were investigated in conjunction with research in Passive optical network, Optical cross-connect and Optical modulation amplitude. The presented Optical Transport Network research focuses mostly on Computer network and, on occasion, topics in Distributed computing.

  • Eigenvalue modulated optical transmission system based on digital coherent technology (29 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at International Conference on Photonics in Switching:

The conference articles explore disciplines such as Optical switch, Electronic engineering, Computer network, Wavelength-division multiplexing and Optical cross-connect. The study of Optical switch, which falls within the realm of Optoelectronics, was the main focus of the studies in the published articles. Issues in Electronic engineering were discussed in the published papers, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Power (physics), All optical, Electrical engineering and Low-power electronics.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Optics
  • Computer network
  • Laser

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The discussions in the conference mainly cover the fields of Optoelectronics, Optics, Electronic engineering, Transmission (telecommunications) and Photonics. The work tackled in the event goes beyond the discipline of Optoelectronics as it also encompasses Optical modulator. The event focuses on Optics research which is adjacent to topics in Fiber.

Multiplexing is a primary topic of Electronic engineering research in the event.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • First Experimental Demonstration of Probabilistic Enumerative Sphere Shaping in Optical Fiber Communications (17 citations)
  • Field-Deployed Multi-Core Fiber Testbed (16 citations)
  • Advances in Terahertz Communications Accelerated by Photonics Technologies (10 citations)

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2019 edition, 5.72% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 34.22% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 13.35% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 21.84% of all publications and 30.58% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
