Nanophotonic device reads twisted light to unlock 100X fiber capacity

The world-first nanophotonic device encodes more data and processes it much faster than conventional fiber optics by using a special form of ‘twisted’ light. The tiny nanophotonic device built for reading twisted light is the missing key required to unlock super-fast, ultra-broadband communications. “Present-day optical communications are heading towards a ‘capacity crunch’ as they fail …
