Abstract : The 1993 Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (JEICE) fall conference was held 5-8 Sep 93 at Hokkaido Institute of Technology. There were 2,161 oral papers and panel discussion sessions in this domestic Japanese conference. Conforming to the usual pattern of the domestic Japanese conference, there were no poster papers. One noticeable paper addressed in this conference was the generation of a 2.5 picosecond soliton pulse at 15 GHz by an NTT researcher. He used the monolithically integrated MQW-DFB-LD/MQW-EA modulator and the dispersion decreasing fiber to generate such a short pulse soliton. This shows a promise for the high throughput transmission test of propagating a soliton pulse over a long distance, i.e., more than 10,000 kilometers. In general, Japanese research is moving more and more into the basic research arena. This is the case especially in the field of optical devices and communications. Many papers presented in this IEICE Fall Conference came from Japanese industrial research laboratories.
