Researchers Create Ultra Fiber Optics, Sets New Record


Japan has tested two separate 100 terabit per second data links that use single optical fiber to carry their loads. New Scientist reports that the NEC scholars stuffed the light from 370 lasers into 165 kilometres of fiber to achieve a speed of 101.7 Tbps, while NICT researchers set a new record of 109 Tbps using a special fiber with seven cores to manage it.
