No. 620: Optical fiber capable of transmitting 5,000 movies in one second (September 21, 2012)

NTT, Fujikura, and Technical University of Denmark developed an optical fiber that can transmit pet bits per second that is 1,000 times more information that the current optical fiber can transmit. That is, the new optical fiber can transmit 5,000 high-vision movies in one second. The three organizations reached the peta level for the first time in the world.

Theoretically, it is possible to increase the volume of information to transmit by increasing the passages of light, but the problem is that passages affect each other adversely. The research members from the three organizations developed an optical fiber that has 12 passages by improving their arrangement. The volume of information transmitted on the Internet increased 10 times in the past 10 years. The development of an optical fiber capable of transmitting a large volume of information is urgently desired.
