WS-28: 6th Workshop on Orbital Angular Momentum Transmission

WS-28: 6th Workshop on Orbital Angular Momentum Transmission


As the independent physical resource in electro-magnetic wave, Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) can provide new dimension for wireless communication, which serves as one of the potential key technologies for B5G and 6G mobile communications. With the exhaustion of frequency resources, additional multiplexing and higher spectrum efficiency can be achieved with the introduction of OAM. For example, Tbps data rate is aimed with OAM channels multiplexed in the free space point-to-point backhaul transmission.

In addition, the fundamental theoretical study of OAM has already been engaged in quantum mechanics for a long time. Many researchers in the vortex electron show promising technology in OAM photon radiation and reception, e.g., relativistic electron cyclotron radiation, electron cyclotron masers and vortex electrons sorter. Besides, information theory with the introduction of OAM is also paid more attention. Therefore, the 6th workshop on OAM transmission in ICC 2024 will focus on both the detailed physical theories of OAM and applications in wireless communications. The workshop is expected to be held with the discussion of the state-of-the-art research on OAM transmission and the promising future applications.
