A new light control system in photonics

New approach could enable new lasers, faster fiber optic communications and imaging

May 31, 2018

A new light control system created at CU Boulder could increase the capacity for fiber optic technologies, enable thinner medical endoscopes and allow for stronger industrial lasers. Many current fiber optic technologies use single-mode fibers, which work better than multi-mode fibers over long distances. However, because they can only carry...
