KARLSRUHE, Germany, May 24, 2011 — On a single laser beam, scientists have succeeded in encoding data at a rate of 26 Tb/s, transmitting the data over a distance of 50 km and decoding the information successfully. The process, developed by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), enables the transmission of 700 DVDs' worth of content in just 1 second, the largest data volume ever transported on a laser beam, according to the researchers. In this experiment, KIT scientists led by professor Jürg Leuthold beat their own 2010 record in high-speed data transmission when they exceeded the magic limit of 10 Tb/s —...Read full article
