Optical Fiber Design Uses Anderson Localization

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
MILWAUKEE, April 18, 2013 — The first practical application of “Anderson localization” — a Nobel Prize-winning phenomenon proposed in 1958 — has yielded a new method for transmitting light through optical fibers. Data transmission through conventional optical fibers — in which only one spatial channel of light traverses the fiber — is the backbone of the Internet. These single-core fibers are reaching the limits of their information-carrying capacity, however, said Dr. Arash Mafi, an assistant professor of electrical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
