Nicklas is a PhD student in the Marie Curie ABACUS project, which involves a long time secondment at ADVA Optical Networking, Meiningen, Germany. The paper he competed with was entitled "First Real-Time 400G PAM-4 Demonstration for Inter-Data Center Transmission over 100 km of SSMF at 1550 nm". The same paper generated a public release by Business Wire (http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160301006467/en/Record-breaking-Reach-Low-cost-Data-Transmission-Data-Centers)
