About the Lab

Fiber optics forms the backbone of communication systems and the Internet, and the demand for higher data rates and bandwidth continues to grow exponentially. Although electronics are used in a plethora of modern day devices and technologies, they cannot outpace the speed, bandwidth, and power efficiency of optics.
