About Richard Penty
Richard Penty has worked for many years on short reach photonic networks for in-building links. This included working on the ethernet standards and is now concentrating on advanced modulation format approaches to realising 100Gb/s photonic links using a single optical source. In parallel he has research on polymer waveguide links and sub-systems for on-board and board to board, including backplane, applications. He has also been involved in research on InP based PICs for switching and routing applications. His research on radio over fibre for in-building radio coverage has resulted in the spin out Zinwave.
