Werner Klaus


Werner Klaus received the M.Sc. degree (Hons.) in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Vienna (TU Wien), Vienna, Austria, in 1991, and the Ph.D. degree in electronics engineering from The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, in 1995. Since 1995, he has been working at the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), Tokyo, on various aspects of optical communications ranging from device to coherent optical system design both in free-space and modern fiber optics, including quantum key distribution (QKD) and space-division multiplexing (SDM). He is currently a Chief Senior Researcher with NICT.

Werner Klaus was a visiting researcher at the Institute of Microtechnology, Neuchâtel, Switzerland (now part of École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) working on the simulation and design of holographic and micro-optical elements for security applications from 2002 to 2003, and a visiting researcher at the Institute of Telecommunications, TU Wien, Austria, working on the simulation and design of optical waveguides and modal filters for space interferometry applications in 2006.

Werner Klaus has served as a Technical Committee Member of the Optical Fiber Communication Conference (OFC) from 2019 to 2021, and as a program chair for OSA's Advanced Photonics Congress from 2017 to 2018. Currently he serves as a member of the Technical Committee on Extremely Advanced Optical Transmission Technologies (EXAT) organizing the EXAT International Symposium that has been held in Japan biyearly since 2013 and has become an important platform for information exchange on the latest trends and developments of SDM technology between Japanese and foreign researchers.

For JLT he is handling submissions on the following topics:

  • Space-division multiplexing transmission and components
  • Electromagnetic field simulations in optics
  • Propagation physics in optical fibers and waveguides
  • Modelling and characterization of fiber-optical components
