BRISBANE, Australia, May 28, 2019 — A new optical device that splits light beams into modes, with each mode acting as an independent channel of information, could be used to pack hundreds of modes into a single optical fiber, increasing the amount of information the fiber can carry. The device splits a beam of light into the “shapes” it is composed of, similar to how a prism splits white light into different colors. It was developed by researchers at the University of Queensland and Nokia Bell Labs. Using common optical components — a spatial light modulator and a mirror — the researchers built a...Read full article
