Optiwave is proud to announce the Academic Publication Portal (A.P.P.): http://optiwave.com/academic-publication-portal/

This portal allows our forum members (nearly 3000 scientists & engineers) the opportunity to earn money by creating Optiwave design files & reports.

Each publication post indicates the contract value ($100-$250) along with minimum requirements. If you do not find a publication that meets your skill set, you may submit your own publication for review. Members are only able to “check-out” one publication at a time.

I would also like to thank the publication authors, as many of these publications were written by forum community members!

Cheers,
Bryan

    Hi Bryan,

    Can you, please, elaborate what you meant by “Each publication post indicates the contract value ($100-$250) along with minimum requirements”? What are the “contract value” and “minimum requirements”?

    Thanks,
    Ravil

      Ravil,

      To make this information more obvious, I will be throwing together an image of an example post with arrows indicating what each field represents. Hopefully I can get this done today!

      For now, I will use the following post as an example: “Data Transparent and Polarization Insensitive All-Optical Switch based on Fibers with Enhanced Nonlinearity”

      If a user successfully completes the following project objectives (found in “Details”), then the user will be paid $100 by Optiwave. This payment is sent from our PayPal account to yours.

      Objective
      Using OptiSystem, demonstrate that using the different nonlinear fibers as wavelength converters results in wavelength converters of varying quality. In addition, implement the polarization insensitive optical switch and compare to your original design. Figures of interest are Figure 7 and Figure 13.

      Requirements for Application Report:
      Must follow provided template and include all relevant sections (title, abstract, layout, results & discussion, and references)
      350 word minimum
      Full screen capture of design schematic
      100% original work (plagiarized work will not be accepted)

      To request permission to start working on a particular project, the user must click “Request” and then describe their “Plan of Action”. Optiwave reviews this Plan of Action, and then either Approves or Denies the request. In most cases, we plan to approve requests!

      If there is a publication that you would like to reproduce that is not found on our site, you can send it to us via “Submit Your Own Publication Request”.

      Hopefully the clarifies some of your questions.

      Note: I will reply again later today once the image with descriptive pointers is uploaded.

      Cheers,
      Bryan

      We just added a section at the top of http://optiwave.com/academic-publication-portal/ which allows you to toggle on/off the “Helper” (indicating what each of the fields is for).

      Cheers,

    Hi
    I just go through the portal, It is very good opportunity for the all researcher and engineers those are working on optical domain. We can discuss our research problem in professional manner & out sourcing the work or create some employability.
    Thanks to Optiwave

    Hello Bryan,Thank you for elaborating this new publication portal as this will increase the forum participants and sharing of good information too.I have some doubts in this
    1)If i will publish my own work to optiwave portal ,if it approve and match with all requirements of reviewer,will i get same prize for this?Or i only get these charges by submitting topics that you have mentioned above.
    2)Who will review research,is there any freedom to select the reviewer by our own or optiwave authenticate this work.

      Sam Sung,

      I appreciate the questions, as they are beneficial to the entire community, and I will try to answer them as best I can.

      1. You can definitely submit your own publication (and in general, I’m assuming that 90% of all publication topics in a year from now will be self-submitted). We simply added some of our own topics to get the ball rolling!

      Here’s the process: If you submit your own publication, it will be reviewed by Optiwave’s appropriate product manager. We will then create a Publication Topic with associated payment value (as determined by us) and assign you as the “Pending” user. You will be emailed a notification that your Publication Topic has been approved, and sent an online Contract page (if you wish to negotiate the payment value, please feel free). If you agree with all the contract details, simply check the “Accept” box and start working on the design files & application report.

      Once the contract is accepted, you will be emailed a link for file submission (design files, report, and layout image). Optiwave will then review these items, and if accepted, will “Close” the topic and then send your money via PayPal.

      After the publication is closed we will create a Forum Topic announcing that you have completed such work, and include the design files and application report for all community members to download. In each future case where Optiwave makes use of your work, we will ensure to reference your name!

      2. Our Product Managers will be the ones signing off on the Publication Request and Final Submission processes. I believe this to be the most fair and appropriate system.

      Best Regards,
      Bryan

    Hi Bryan,

    Thank you very much for your detailed answer! In my opinion, it will be a great opportunity for all members to share their ideas in optics research and engineering and make contributions in a future development of Optiwave products! There are few final questions that I would like to ask:

    1. Should the project be published or just submitted/accepted in some kind of proceeding before its submission for Optiwave Publication Portal?
    2. In case if we would like to submit a new publication, does it have to be our own?

      Ravil,

      I absolutely agree with your comment, and I truly believe this portal will be useful for everyone involved. Regarding your questions:

      1. We are very open at this point. The goal is to get solid simulation examples that have theoretical/experimental references. Optiwave will definitely need access to the content of the paper, so it must be available for viewing (whether free or purchased).

      2. No, this can be any publication of your choosing that you feel comfortable in reproducing.

      The main goal is to allow community members an opportunity to make a little extra $$ by helping Optiwave build relevant sample designs using referenced material. I highly encourage you (and everyone reading this) to simply submit a publication topic that you feel comfortable in reproducing (using Optiwave software), and tryout our entire process. Worst-case scenario is that you waste a little bit of your time!

      I hope this helps in your decision.

      Cheers,
      Bryan

        Dear Bryan,

    Hi Ravil,

    I read the above things about Academic Publication portal. Can you explain in brief.

    Thanks

      Hi Subhashish,

      Speaking very briefly about your question (which was explained in details above), from my understanding the Academic Publication portal from Optiwave is a very good tool for community members to make practice their skills in designing schemes and earn money from Optiwave for that. The whole process is as following:
      1. Choose the published project (in a scope of Optiwave products) that you would like to work on.
      2. Submit this project at Optiwave Publication Portals link (the example is given).
      3. Wait for an approval of your request from Optiwave Product Managers.
      4. Perform the work on your submitted project and get paid upon completion.

    I will go for my research publication. If it gets qualified by the Optiwave team, then I will proceed further in that direction. My topic is ring-resonator.

      As I found out from Bryan, you can go either for your research publication or the other publication that you want to implement. It is up to you! The final price for the project can be negotiable between you and Optiwave Product Managers.
      I hope my elaboration was clear enough for you. Good luck with your project implementation! Let me know if you have any questions about what I wrote. I am understanding the functionality of this Publication Portal as well!

    Do I get some help in research project from Optiwave as well ?

      Subhashish,

      Optiwave’s participation in helping create the design files will be minimal, as this is what the compensation is for. However, if you run into any issues with software models (or general functionality), please inform us via the forums, and we will try to assist you immediately.

      Feel free to submit your own publication request at any time.

      Cheers,
      Bryan
