POWCOL: Photonics and Optical Wireless Communication Laboratory
The Bogazici Photonics and Optical Wireless Communication Laboratory (POWCOL) was established in 2006 by Dr. Heba Yüksel as she joined the department from Ciena Corporation. At POWCOL, multidisciplinary research projects in the fields of optoelectronics & photonics as well as optical communication are conducted. The main research focus at POWCOL is atmospheric turbulence, transmitter/receiver design, aperture averaging, and image sensing for Free-Space Optical Communication links (FSO), security and design issues in optical fiber communication systems, Visible Light Communication (VLC), 3D surface topography using optical systems, optical sensors, and antennas.
