Novel Fibers Use Space to Extend Capacity Limits

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Valerie C. Coffey, Science Writer, [email protected]

New optical fibers such as multicore, multimode and hollow core use their spatial properties in the designs of next-generation systems to solve future fiber capacity bottlenecks and other sticky problems. The optical network that enables today’s smartphones, tablets and computers to stream all that beloved bandwidth is headed for trouble: In a decade or less, most experts say, transmission rates of current fiber networks will face a “capacity crunch” as single-mode fiber (SMF) approaches its intrinsic capacity limit. Current cutting-edge networks use...Read full article
