In an advance that may dramatically reduce cost and energy consumption of high-speed internet communication, researchers have developed an optical medium in which multiple beams of light can autocorrect their their own shapes without affecting other beams. Nonlinear-optical effects can process data thousands of times faster than what electrically could be achieved, researchers said. Such processing has worked only for one optical beam at a time because in the presence of multiple light beams, the nonlinear-optical effects also cause unnecessary inter-beam interaction, or crosstalk. Researchers from University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) in the US and the University of Vermont (UVM) in Canada enabled simultaneous nonlinear-optical processing of multiple light beams by a single device without converting them to electrical form, opening the way for this technology to reach its full potential. "Our new nonlinear medium has allowed us to demonstrate simultaneous all-optical regeneration … [Read more...] about Low-cost high-speed internet in the offing
