Record Data from Standard Fiber Optics were Transmitted in a New Method

Scientists from Australia and Canada announced that they managed to carry a record amount of data from 75km of standard fiber cables thanks to the micro comb system they created using soliton crystals.

Scientists were able to transmit high amounts of data from a 75km standard fiber optic using a single composite chip source, which they obtained from an important structure called soliton crystals.

Data transmission networks are produced with various frequencies or colors to transmit as much information as possible. A separate laser is needed for each color used in typical transmission networks still in use. This makes it difficult to properly create networks and results in huge costs.

In the new study of scientists, a structure called micro comb was used instead of multiple lasers used in transmission networks. Using the structure called micro comb, just like the combs used for hair, scientists managed to use different frequencies equally, allowing the phase and width of laser beams to be controlled easily and precisely.

The researchers explained that by creating all the wavelengths they obtain with a single compact integrated chip instead of many parallel lasers, they offer great advantages in terms of performance, scalability and power consumption.

Professor Roberto Morandotti, one of the scientists who participated in the study, said that it is often difficult to produce and balance a comb system as they use, and it does not save power even under ideal conditions. Morandotti said that the development of the new micro comb, which enables high amounts of data to be transmitted, using soliton crystals, overcomes all these difficulties.

The study has demonstrated the ability of optical micro combs in communication networks. Professor Morandotti announced that the developed system could be used commercially within 5 years. Commercial use of this micro comb system made of soliton crystals can enable data transfer at much higher speeds to be delivered to large audiences.
