Fiber Optic refers to a technology that uses thin, transparent strands of glass or plastic known as optical fibers to transmit data as pulses of light. This technology is widely used in telecommunications, networking, and various other applications due to its ability to transmit information over long distances with high speed and minimal signal loss.


Long Reach Fibre Optic Distributed Acoustic Sensing using Enhanced Scattering Fibre

We report significant noise reduction in distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) link using enhanced-scatter fibre (ESF). The longest reach of 195km DAS link without inline amplifications is also demonstrated. We further present demonstration of simultaneous fibre-optic sensing and 400Gb/s data transmissions over 195km fibre using ESF.

Next-Generation Computing Finally Sees Light

Moore’s law is dead, as we have squeezed all the innovation out of silicon. Fiber optics is the solution to meet the computing needs of tomorrow. Today, we can already use the light traveling inside fiber optic cables as sensors that measure vibrations, sound, temperature, light, and pressure changes. We’re now developing the means to take this to the next level with photonic computing at the speed of light to provide faster reaction time, reduce energy consumption and improve battery range
