How we evolve to a RAN Smart edge

Silicon Photonics for 5G Communications




Leslie Ann Rusch (S’91–M’94–SM’00) received the B.S.E.E. degree (with honors) from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, in 1980 and the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, in 1992 and 1994, respectively. From 2001 to 2002, she was the Manager of a group researching new wireless technologies at Intel Corporation. She is currently a Full Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Université Laval, Québec, QC, Canada, performing research in wireless and optical communications. Her research interests include optical code-division multiple access (OCDMA) using non coherent sources for metropolitan area networks; semiconductor and erbiumdoped optical amplifiers and their dynamics; and wireless communications and high-performance reduced complexity receivers for ultrawideband systems employing CDMA.
