Data Routes On Information Superhighway Enhanced With New Dynamic Dual-core Optical Fiber
2012-12-19 16:31:45

Optical Society of America Light 'jumping the tracks' enables enhanced data processing, better sensing Optical fibers —the backbone of the Internet—carry movies, messages, and music at the speed of light. But for all their efficiency, these ultrathin strands of pristine glass must connect to sluggish signal switches, routers, and buffers in order to transmit data. Hoping to do away with these information speed bumps, researchers have developed a new, dual-core optical fiber...

Research could lead to the development of enhanced bio-sensors for healthcare and more efficient solar cells and displays Researchers at King's College London, in collaboration with European research institutes ICFO (Barcelona) and AMOLF (Amsterdam), have succeeded in mapping how light behaves in complex photonic materials inspired by nature, like iridescent butterfly wings. Scientists have broken the limit of light resolution at the nanoscale and delivered a fundamental insight into how...

FRANKLIN, Tenn., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- 3SAE Technologies, Inc. has developed a Liquid Clamp Cleaver(TM) specially designed for all standard cladding size and large diameter cladding fiber. The patent-pending Liquid Clamp Cleaver is designed for customers using fibers from 125 to 650 um that require very flat cleaves for improved splice loss and beam quality. Currently, the primary cause of bad cleave angles is torsion strain in the fiber, induced by torque from conventional clamps....

U.S. scientists say they have, for the first time, produced a practical optical fiber with a silicon core. The Clemson University researchers -- led by Professor John Ballato and fiber pioneer Roger Stolen -- created the new fiber using the same methods employed in developing commercial all-glass fibers, making silicon fibers viable alternatives to glass fibers for selected specialty applications. The scientists said their achievement should ultimately help increase efficiency and...

  • The navel or umbilicus.
  • In Greek archaeology: A central boss, as on a shield, a bowl, etc.
  • A sacred stone in the temple of Apollo at Delphi, believed by the Greeks to mark the 'navel' or exact center-point of the earth.
'Omphalos' comes from the ancient Greek.
