Optical data transfer's new leading light?
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 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
