Making Faster Optical "Cables" Using Nothing But Lasers and Air

Technology / Gadgets : Gizmodo (5 months ago)

Pulses of light are the absolute fastest way to transfer data (because nothing's faster than light), but old school fiber optic cables can only go so many places. Scientists have a new idea: use high-powered lasers to make a column ... Read Post

Researchers create fiber network that operates at 99.7% speed of light, smashes speed and latency records

Technology / Hardware : Extremetech (2 years ago)

Researchers at the University of Southampton in England have produced optical fibers that can transfer data at 99.7% of the universe's speed limit: The speed of light. The researchers have used these new optical fibers to transfer d... Read Post

Squeezing more light in could lead to fiber optic cables that carry 10 times more data

Technology : GigaOM (last year)

Researchers have determined how to minimize the space between data-carrying signals, potentially leading to more efficient telecommunications systems. Read Post
